Arnold can generate a log reporting all the steps needed to render an image, as well as any warnings and errors encountered by the renderer. This log also provides detailed statistics that are useful for debugging, optimizing and benchmarking renders.

Note, C4DtoA will save an individual log file for each frame of animation that has been rendered. You can also defined the padding manually by adding # characters to the path (e.g. c:\armold\log\my_scene_###.log)

Verbosity Level

Specifies the verbosity of log messages:

  • Errors: Show errors only.
  • Warnings (default): Show error and warning messages.
  • Info: Show errors, warnings, statistics and any info that does not slow down rendering.
  • Debug: Show all information. Take care when using this mode as render times may increase.


Shows the log in the CINEMA 4D Console (in the Standard layout, click Script > Console to see the log).


If enabled log is written to the specified file.

File path

Specifies the output path for Arnold log files. You can use environment variables. You can use padding (#) in the file name.

Max. Warnings

Limits the number of warning messages (of a similar type) that are sent to the log.
