I have not used cinema 4D for a long time ago , but it does not seem a bad choice because it is widely used in visualization. although I'm in animation industry.

Fabric engine stage might be something worth checking out for you :)
It looks like a really excellent scene assembly and lighting tool currently under development.

You might find it interesting considering it is meant to work with both maya and softimage as well as other apps.

But as I understood it is standalone...

In my opinion, the best option is Cinema 4D.
It's widely used not only for motion design, but for architectural scenes as well. While oldfags use 3DS, C4D is developing and the number of C4D users is increasing rapidly. Furthermore a wide range of collections and models is available for C4D. Among them there are some giant manufacturers like Evermotion. Some of these collections are available only for C4D and 3DS.
In case you integrate into C4D you'll have almost zero competion, since Vray has not been developing for 1.5 year. I'm sceptical about Octane renderer perspectives as well, cause it is so-o-o slow! Mental Ray is buit in, though I've seen nothing more than a terrible beta. And according to my experience it is also slow, not realistic and very uncomfortable.

Other 3D programms are either unpopular, either underdeloped or free.

I would like to know if I can somehow provide you with finantial help. Maybe you should start a donation program? I'm sure that there are many C4D users willing to help you to raise some funds and start working on intergration onti C4D.

Sorry for my bad English .

I want to know how to help you financially - Cinema 4D users from Russia would like to help you in the development of integration as possible.
How much money that would be necessary to begin to develop?

My estimate is that I would need about half a year of single developer's time to get things running. There are some deals being made regarding the financial support, so I think that would not be necessary. But what would help a lot would be if someone could get some reference implementation of a renderer in C4D (source codes). There is one for 3dsmax in the API help, it is very rudimentary, but still it helped a lot. Is there any such thing for C4D?

Cinema4D great product, is gaining popularity for its simplicity and logic. This will render a real push in its further use. I'll buy this integration. Working with interiors and architecture.
