Cinema 4D Prime is the most utilitarian version of Cinema 4D, but often sold to as the go-to starting point for graphic designers interested in bringing 3D into their workflow.
You get all the important modeling, lighting, texturing, and animation tools, and even a few effectors from the MoGraph toolset (mostly fun procedural stuff) that aren't even available in Prime.
This whole free-Cinema-4D thing comes as a surprise to virtually every Adobe-using designer I know, so spread the word! You don't need budget-breaking hardware or software to get started with 3D.
Y'all know now, right?
Seriously, tell your designer friends! This is how we make 3D more accessible to our community.
