Easily switch from simple color materials to a reflectance-based workflow.

A Cinema 4D Script for easily converting materials to a reflectance-based workflow.

  • Converts selected color + spec materials to the "New PBR Material" template.

  • Useful for updating imported materials (via FBX, OBJ, etc) to something that is more Cinema 4D R19 friendly.

  • Limited support for updating "Reflection (Legacy)" single reflectance layers to PBR.

Known Limitations
  • No support for Animated parameters.

  • Specular -> Reflectance and back again is lossy.

  • Fresnel won’t match source if you’re using a Fresnel shader
