I want to buy a program to take my designs off paper and turn them to computer generated images, I heard that Cinema 4D is very good, though My friends tell me that to go with 3Ds Max, I dont think they were aware of it at the time that they dont make the program for mac.
I also am woundering if apple's Shake can do the same thing at those programs

Apple shake is a compositing program... totally different type of software. It is made to take elements and place them into a composition... Not to create 3d like 3dsmax or Cinema 4d... Of those type of programs I would maybe suggest Maya."If you had a friend who was a tightrope walker, and you were walking down a sidewalk, and he fell, that would be completely unacceptable." -Mitch Hedberg

Thanks for your help, I am looking at those things in the area of product design, and i am impressed with the examples on the website so i am learning cinema 4d, I am demoing it before I go out and buy it and I am happy with the results

If you don't need animation, take a look at a program called Modo made by Luxology. I've been a Maya user for over a year and now I'm learning Modo because it features a much better tool set for 3D modeling. The renderer ain't bad either, it can do stuff like global illumination, final gathering, sub surface scattering, etc. Modo is also a universal binary, the other reason why I'm trying to get away from Maya (since they don't have a UB).
They offer a completely unlocked trial with complete learning videos, full help and learning support files.
