You can always convert the C4D material and modify that to your liking

Ah, it's a MultiShader... I've never had to convert a MultiShader to an Arnold Material before... it might not be possible, you might have to recreate it manually. But considering it's all being controlled by an Xpresso rig, you may have to get your hands dirty to make that work for you and keep the Xpresso controls intact.

Someone from Autodesk will probably give you definitive answers for that. They're usually very quick, very helpful and they know their stuff 😉

There's no support to auto-convert a Multi Shader to Arnold shaders. It should be basically a switch_rgba shader driver by the index of the pages. Here's a similar thread of assigning textures in order of clones generated by a Cloner: https://answers.arnoldrenderer.com/questions/22656/assigning-different-colors-to-mograph-object-base...
