^ Yes, how is it going with the program? I ended holding off on buying because of complaints about the interface among the reviews on Amazon and I wanted to hear some feedback from a Grog. What are the high and low points you've come across so far?

I am still learning the program so I doubt I have a complete picture.  Also my time with it has been limited and disjointed.  However, I will say that the interface is not what I would consider intuitive.  Not that it is horrible it is just unlike anything I have ever used.

I think it might be one of those easy to learn hard to master type of situations.  After some practice I've got the basic concept and interface down.  There are alot of things you can do with the program and a good number of them are somewhat automated for those of us who don't or can't do everything by hand.  I still haven't scratched the surface but I am happy with what I've seen so far.

For an even better overview and "demo" with out purchasing anything check out this great YouTube tutorial using CC3

I watched some of the tutorials and after checking out the publisher's website I realize there are a lot of related programs that allow for some cool stuff such as card-modeling scenery for minis and designing cityscapes. This could get pricey. My own copy of CC3 just arrived today so I might get a chance to poke away at it a little bit tomorrow unless I get sucked in to either War Thunder or Planetside 2.
