Support for Apple Silicon (M1) in C4DtoA?

Is there an ETA as to when Arnold will support Apple Silicon with Cinema 4D? Is it even being worked on?

It‘s not bad at all. Good enough to see what you are doing in the project.

For 2 years (or 3?) we could not get reflection support for Shadow Matte surfaces with GPU. Recently we got “shadows” only. We can exclude/include lights since last month. So, I guess you should not wait for it for a long time.

mmm bummer.. with the upcoming M1X, I hope it will be supported in the near future.
Maybe not using the GPU (yet), but at least not having to run Cinema4D in Rosetta mode will be a nice welcome.Looking forward to it.
