Cinema 4d as it turns out isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. The Dissolve and Connect tools are amazing (thought not hot-keyed… unless someone can correct me) and it can import Illustrator files easily.
Here’s a Nintendo 64 controller that I started 2hrs ago. Got the Memory/Rumble Pak slot done, and the basic shape of the top. The hard part will be the bottom because its so “wavey” and has to be symmetrical.
Maybe I’ll post the .c4d file when I’m done.
