The CINEMA 4D interface can seem a little bit daunting when you first open it up, but it's divided into some logical segments that we'll talk about now. The first thing you should notice about CINEMA 4D is that it is contained entirely inside of a shell window. That window allows the programmers to make the application nearly identical between Mac and PC. If you walk into a situation and you find yourself, as a Mac user, having to work on a PC, CINEMA 4D behaves exactly the same, except for the Command or Ctrl key, and the same holds true for the PC.

This makes things much easier for both the programmers and for the users.
