    I’m new to C4D, but have a project where I have a small budget to get a project rendered. It was originally developed in R16, but I had to utilize the Redshift plugin for realistic metals and GI. Instead of buying the plugin, we went for an upgrade in C4D to 22 with the Redshift rendering plugin included.
    I’ve been reviewing a few cloud rendering services, Zync and The Ranch, but they don’t show support for R22 (only R21). I have sent tech support emails to them, but I have not heard back. My deadline is approaching, and need to find a solution asap.
    Was curious if the community has utilized cloud rendering with newest version of C4D, and if anyone has any recommendations.

    Thanks!

    S22 scene files should open just fine in R21.
    There may be a few incompatibilities with parametric objects but you can always make editable or bake.
    Take advantage of any free trials.

    Have your tried the Checker tool from The Ranch:

    Thanks for the feedback. I actually went with GarageFarm. The plugin works fine, and the price was very reasonable.
