Solid Angle, Makers of the Arnold Rendering engine, along with Maxon, will be announcing Arnold for Cinema 4D at the Siggraph 2014 show this August. Arnold for Cinema 4D (C4DtoA) is officially with Solid Angle and will bridge the two applications allowing C4D users direct access to Arnold’s renderer.

Customers have been asking for a bridge to Cinema 4D for several years. We are delighted to be working with MAXON to make this a reality

This is great news for Cinema 4D users in having another renderer available to the application.

In addition, it is great to see Arnold as an official C4D bridge to the renderer and not a third party release as VRAYforC4D is. Although VRAYforC4D is completely capable, the release is slightly behind the official version of V-Ray and its features.

Having Arnold officially within the Solid Angle stable makes for a more reliable and up to the minute product in my opinion.

Currently in alpha, Arnold for Cinema 4D is slated for release in Q4 2014.
