    I am working on a project that someone else created, this person used Arnold as their renderer. When I open the project files I get this error (image)

    All the materials start to disappear and turn grey on all materials as the project opens.

    And it seems some rigging issues come up too,

    You’ll need to get an Arnold license.

    You should be able to just remove all of the Arnold materials (and Arnold lights, etc.) and replace them with standard C4D versions, and also remove “Arnold Renderer” from the project’s Render Settings. You can then resave the project and the error message shouldn’t return if you’ve removed everything associated with Arnold. Arnold is only a renderer, so it should have no effect on rigging. That issue is something you’ll need to fix on its own.
