Redshift materials for PlantFactory and PlantCatalog plants in Cinema 4D

Any PlantCatalog or PlantFactory plant can be brought into Cinema 4D with native Redshift materials through the integration plugin.

The PlantFactory integration plugin which is included with both PlantFactory Professional / Enterprise and with the full PlantCatalog collection can create native materials for Redshift in Cinema 4D. Just set the render engine to Redshift, load the procedural plant with the plugin and convert it to a native Cinema 4D polygon object. You can even use Redshift's sprite node for best rendering performance. The plugin will take care of mapping PlantFactory's material channels and properties to a native Redshift node graph.

The conversion works with all Redshift builds from 3.0.46 and up and is available in Cinema 4D R23, S24 and R25. We plan to extend this conversion feature to older Cinema 4D versions in the future.
