You can get Cinema 4D CE6 for free. Just get a trial version and then go here:
(not sure if it's still running...)

C4DCE used to be XL6 (circa 2000)
I wonder how well it runs in OS X.
its available in Computer Arts Magazine which may or may not still be on the news stands.

I couldn't find a CE download anywhere on maxon's site, and its been 5 years since I used XL6 so I don't know what feature it has, or doesn't have.

A free poly-reducer of C4D's caliber is surely a want, so I guess I have to head to the book store tomorrow and see if I can pay $13 for my "free" software.

Maxon dropped out of the consumer market for the last four years or so.
Maybe Cheetah3D made them rethink their strategy.

I though iGame3D scared them out of that market.

Could be...
I wish it had inspired them to make a game IDE with their cool tech before I started this mad mission.

Well, I did it. I have no idea whether I'll actually like C4D. Thanks for pointing this out.

Don't bother with CE6...

I've been a long-time C4D user (since before version 5) and currently have XL7 installed, but I only occasionally use it for rendering nowadays. Believe it or not Wings and Blender have better modelling and animation tools than XL7 (for game-type stuff anyway).

Don't get me wrong, C4D probably has the best UI out there, but you'll need v9 to get decent polygon tools. I couldn't justify upgrading when free stuff proved to be a more than adequate alternative.

I can't see where to actually download CE6 though. This seems kind of useless...

Click on register on the left. They claim you get the registration code within 2 hours. I assume you go to the download section, get it, and then use the # they send you.

OK, I take it back... I also can't find any download links. The email they send goes to a generic page. Sad

Hmm.. If anyone does see it on a cd following some magazine, please let us know in here. Ninja ..or the dreadful ninja will have to come and knock those maxon-people around until they put it up on their page.
