My First Cinema4D Render

Lately I've been trying out Cinema4D. I think it is clear that Cinema4D has had a direct influence over the development of Cheetah3D, a program I know well. From the way C4D behaves and feels—like certain conventions and the use of Tags and Modifiers, whatever they are called in C4D—everything just rings a bell, like I am in familiar territory. The thing I've been doing first (after finding how to create objects) is trying out C4D's materials and global illumination. I have to say I am not disappointed at all, I think I'm going to have to try and dig deeper into this incredible program. In the meantime, here is my first render with it—inspired mostly on this tutorial I found in tutorialhero.com. There's a lot of room for improvement in the final render. As usual, the key to improving the image seems to be the lighting setup :) I added a bit of noise and a Bloom filter in Pixelmator. The noise was needed due to some banding in the gray blends on the background.

First render with Cinema4D.
