VRayToC4D Material Converter

Pubblicato da massimo cafarella il

It’s an useful Cinema 4D plugin that converts all V-Ray material inside a scene to C4D equivalent

The intent is to support .FBX and similar file export and NOT to make a full material conversion. This means not all V-Ray features are supported. Because only bitmaps are supported by export formats, this plugin has focus on them.

Cinema 4D does not support materials during export if they are not internal. So this plugin tries to limit this gap.

It mantains all bitmap directly loaded into C4D Bitmap, V-Ray Bitmap and V-Ray Advanced Bitmap shaders.

On the other hand it not (yet) supports other kind of shaders.


Vers. 1.1.3

  • Fixed failure when used PowerShader other than Bitmap and AdvancedBitmap(but not yet supported)

Vers. 1.1.2

  • Fixed failure when no tags are present on the left of material tags

Vers. 1.1.1

  • Fixed failure on registering plugin for Mac users

Vers. 1.1.0

  • Fixed Roughness values
  • Added Support for V-Ray Displacement Material

Vers. 1.0.0

  • Support for all colors in primary Vray channels
  • Support for Add, Subtract, Multiply and Normal mixing feature under each texture channel
  • Support for V-Ray Bitmap(Power Shader), V-Ray Advanced Bitmap, and simple C4D Bitmap.
  • Support for V-Ray 2 Sided Material (Will be replaced by Front Side Material)
  • Possibility to choose conversion for all materials in document or only for selected.
  • Possibility to clean all old and unassigned materials after conversion (also sorting)
  • Normal/Bump channel automatic assigment
  • Possibility to not discard all C4D original shaders


In future (hope close) version the following feature are in the workshop:

  • Possibility to not discard all not supported shaders.
  • Possibility to Bake all shaders(non bitmaps) into bitmaps.
  • Choose Bake resolution.
  • Support for more V-Ray material types.
  • Support for more than one V-Ray specular channel.


  • After downloading VRayToC4D.zip file extract it into your Cinema 4D plugin folder (E.G.: “C:\Program files\Maxon CInema 4D R 21\plugins”)
  • At first execution you’ll be asked to fill with email and license key (you received by email)
    After that, you’ll never request for this info.

Remember that a license key is valid only on one machine.

If you reset your hardware or change Cinema 4D installation, plugin won’t work.

You can contact us if the case.


  • Only Selected Materials
    Will convert only materials active in Materials view.
  • Purge Old and Unused Materials
    At the end of process will purge all unused materials and sort them.
  • Do not discard C4D Shaders
    All C4D shaders different from Bitmap will not be discarded.

Example of conversion:

NOTE: VRayToC4D Material Converter acts only on materials assigned to objects (or if you prefer on objects with material tags assigned).

che mi serve

ma esiste un video che dimostra cosa riesce a fare questo software?

    Salve, grazie per l’interessamento. Sono in preparazione effettivamente.

Doesnt work on R20. It only converts 1 material with no textures?

    Hi Madsbknudsen,
    We tested on R20 and it works correctly.
    It converts all materials excerpt if “only selected” if checked.
    For textures are supported images, V-Ray images, V-Ray advanced images. Not all procedural.
    Feel free to post your c4d scene we’ll check it for possible issues.
    Best regards.
