1. Try starting C4D from the unix executable directly and keep an eye on the terminal output.
Look for any error messages during initial startup and look at the last lines before the crash.
"/Applications/Cinema 4D R21/Cinema 4D"

2. If the freezes/crashes occur after a while while a particular project file is open, then start a clean scene and merge that project into it and save off a new version.

3. If it still crashes with a specific scene file after attempting #2 then try copying and pasting all the objects and materials from the scene to a fresh one and save the new file.

4. If this happens at random while any scene is loaded keep track of what tools you are using (screen record if necessary) and see if there is anything in common. It could be a single tool?

5. Move or rename your C4D preferences folder. A New one will be created on the next startup with fresh preferences.
Drop your plugins and script into the fresh profile and see how it runs after a while. It could be a corrupt preference.

6. To check if any other app running in the background are interfering: Create a new user profile on your Mac, log out of your current profile completely, and log into it. Start C4D without any other apps running and see what happens.
