Cinema 4D

  • Learn this program if you want to create title animations and motion graphics. Great for abstract 3D animations and clean looking renders.


  • Learn this program if you want to work in the architecture, product design or engineering space.


  • Amazing FREE 3D application. Great for beginners and pros, but not widely used in the VFX industry. IMO, the BEST program if you just work freelance or want to work in indie games or make fun YouTube videos!
