I've just purchased C4D and have no experience in 3D modeling. Embarrassingly, I'm one of those people who actually read the manual. So, I was a little surprised to find that C4D doesn't have one. Context sensitive online help, yes, but the common pdf manual doesn't appear to exist / be available for download.
There's a wealth of videos out there (along with paid courseware like Lynda) and I'll doubtless avail myself of them, but I do like to read up on a product's features as well. Is there reading material out there somewhere that's close to the scope and intent of a user manual?
Thanks very much, that's exactly the sort of thing I was looking for. I had visited the download link you mentioned, and it threw me off because they're all listed as "context sensitive help" when in fact it's the actual manual.
I do most of my RTFM on my iPad, so I usually download pdf files. However, I'm always home when I'm reading tech stuff, so you posting the online link was just what I need for that scenario.
Can't wait to get rolling with it. Looks like a really nice package.
