What are the pros and cons of: - Maya Complete 8.5 - Cinema 4D R10 STUDIO - LightWave 9 I think C4D is the only one which is 64-bit. When are the others supposed to be too? It also seems C4D has the best workflow (After Effects, Combusion, Motion, FCP integration). C4D also has very nice upgrade pricing. C4D does not use a dongle. The others do. But C4D and LW use their own scripting languages, while in Maya it's also possible to use Python. LW does not support 3dconnexion, so it's a no go. Better wait until SIGGRAPH.
