I am VERY unfamiliar with 3d rendering. I need to find a way to create multiple steel braided cables. I can create these in Illustrator, but it will take a long time to do multiple versions of these. Someone recommended Cinema 4D lite that I have already with After Effects. Looking at this image, does it seem like something C4D could easily handle? The outer layer of the cable is what I am really worried about. Thanks!

the outer cable look is very easily done as a texture with bump in it. If you needed the full detail for very close shots it can be done by sweeping a ring of circles along a spline to give the look you need.
