Perhaps someone could help with this issue I've run into while using Ambient Occlusion in C4D.
I've set up a simple scene of some text laying on the floor. I've added ambient occlusion so that the text will have nice shadowing underneath it. The issue is, I have the text set up so that there is a inner color layer and a outer layer that is transparent with reflections to simulate glass. When ambient occlusion is added I lose the color of the inner layer and it looks black and white. How can I still use ambient occlusion and keep the color of the inner layer?

try using AO in the material on the floor in the diffuse channel (and possibly the inner material on the text) instead of using AO as a scene wide effect

Awesome, that worked like a charm. Thanks so much!
