I have both, but Cinema is seems easier. But 3d max as the ability to have better materials. Well who knows, I guess I should really start learning 3D, it’s just that it’s soooo hard.
if your used to the easy layout of cinema 3d (like me) then stick to it cause its alot easyer to use that 3d studio max then when you get more used to 3d design then you should maybe choose to start using 3d studio max.
but thats only my opinion.
