Arnold Denoiser

Hello, does anyone know if there is any step by step instructions out there on how to use The Arnold build in denoiser in C4DtoA ? Or even a test project file that one can study? I didn't quite get on how to use it in the manual. Thank you.

Are you denoising the files output by the EXR driver, of the files output by CINEMA 4D?

You have to use the files output by the EXR driver .

Thank you Stephen. Before seeing your reply, after trial and error, it's exactly what I did and it worked fine. Instead of clicking 'create EXR driver', before rendering, I selected 'EXR driver for Arnold denoiser' under the C4DtoA plugin sub-menu. That automatically created all the AOVs needed to denoise. Thanks again!
