What happened to the xparticles shader in R20 and C4DtoA 2.4.2.1? I want to pass the color information over to the standard shader, but can´t seem to find the xparticles shader

I wonder what the log shows when you render a scene. This sounds like the c4d specific shader library is not loaded, which could lead to other problems.

Hi Peter,

thanks for the fast answer! unfortunately xparticles shader is not available in my network. i will reinstall arnold, but user_data_rgb did the trick already.

The xparticles shader was not touched and I don't see any problems here. Is the shader not available in the network editor at all? Maybe your installation is corrupted. Do you have any error/warning in the log (console)? Are you on Windows or Mac? Can you see the normal_displacement or vector_displacement shaders in the editor?

As a workaround, you can use a user_data_rgb shader instead of xparticles. Set the attribute to xp_color.
