The plug-in is available for

  • CINEMA 4D R20.057 or above
  • CINEMA 4D R21.022 or above
  • CINEMA 4D R22.016 or above
  • CINEMA 4D R23.008 or above


Most likely your version of CINEMA 4D is too old.

Arnold is moved to main menu bar in C4DtoA 3.1.0. Maybe there's a bug with the Educational version. Can you please check an older build, like 3.0.4.1?

Are you on Windows or Mac?
