This Cinema 4D plugin 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 focused on them.

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

It maintains 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 kinds of shaders.
