Brilliant modelling program. It is on par with Zbrush and the baking tools are incredible. Retopo tools are very much like Topogun, you can retopo your models quickly and efficiently. It is very easy to learn once you know the workflow which is pretty much standard.

PBR viewport which also has the same shading model as Unreal Engine 4 so what you see in 3D - Coat will be what you get in Unreal Engine 4 which really solves the problem of having to export and import to check any changes you have made with your models.

Great application, easy to learn, you can get amazing results with this and I highly recommend it!

Relatively powerful tool. The voxel painting it offers by far surpasses other programs of its type. It's a great tool and it's pretty fun to learn.

If you're an amatuer, who knows nothing about 3D modeling, then this is the program for you.

It's pretty intuitive after watching a few tutorial videos from their Youtube channel; and playing around with it your self. At first it may feel like learning a new language, but eventually you'll be able to create things straight from your dreams. Just think of it like playing with clay, but virtually.
