Can you extract camera information from Arnold procedural

Is it possible to extract or access a camera within a procedural in Cinema 4d?


I briefly tried entering the matrix values into cinema but that didn't seem to work.


I also tried looking in the ipr camera drop down to see if it was possibly being read in there, but no luck.


I was surprised that I didn't see the camera object in the Arnold Procedural nodes hierarchy too.


For now were just going to use FBX for the camera export.

Arnold loads shapes, shaders, and lights from an ASS file. Another node type, like cameras, is ignored.

So while that persp_camera is in the ass file, it is never loaded into the scene that you render in CINEMA 4D.
