Camera view as material?

hi! in vanilla cinema 4D, there is a Camera Shader that can be used to put a camera's view on a material. an example of where you might use this is in a scene with a character, that also has a screen with a live surveillance video feed on that character, if that makes sense. here's a quick mockup of an example of it in use. 


i was wondering if there was some way to do this in arnold for cinema 4D. i've tried everything and i can't seem to find any information about this by googling. thanks!

There's no equivalent shader in Arnold. You have to do it in two steps, first render the scene from the surveillance camera and then the final camera.
