Arnold on C4D R25, Mac M1 Monterey

I am trying to run Arnold on C4D R25 and it doesn't appear on the menu bar after installing C4DtoA file from the site. What am i doing wrong?

You need to run CINEMA 4D under Rosetta, and you need R25.010 and above

I have installed Rossetta but I still dont see Arnold menu in the bar. Does Arnold get installed automatically in the right plugins folder or do I need to copy anything in the plugins folder?

No, you don't have to copy files. I have seen C4DtoA installed in the user folder while CINEMA 4D was in the system Library folder.

Are you sure you are running under Rosetta?
What if you start CINEMA 4D from the command line?

For example, here's the command to run in a Terminal

arch -x86_64 /Applications/Maxon\ Cinema\ 4D\ R25/Cinema\ 4D.app/Contents/MacOS/Cinema\ 4D

The arch -x86_64 will start CINEMA 4D in Rosetta mode.

In the Terminal, there will be a bunch of log messages.

Look for one that says:

Loading from directory file:///Applications/Maxon Cinema 4D R25/plugins/C4DtoA:

oh wow that did work! I have Rossetta installed though. so it means that it doesnt trigger it to open correctly with it? How do i get it to open correctly with Rossetta?

Cheers

I did find this :

Loading from directory file:///Applications/Maxon Cinema 4D R25/plugins/C4DtoA:

c4dtoa.xlib with module com.autodesk.c4dtoa

I'm not sitting at a Mac right now, but iirc you have to right-click the application, and in Get Info, enable Open with Rosetta

The much simpler way to run an app under Rosetta is to Get Info on the App icon in the finder, and enable the "Open using Rosetta" option.screen-shot-2021-12-16-at-54202-pm.png

What is "it' ? 

Is "it" Cinema 4D R25?
