Import C4D R21 scene into Photoshop 2020

Hi I was wondering if there is currently a way of importing camera, texture and geometry into Photoshop.

I want the ability to swap screen content on an arching screen with a wide angle lens and for the reflections in the space to change accordingly.

Anyone know if this is possible inside PS without rebuilding it manually?
All of the posts i've found refer to much older versions of PS and C4D.

Thanks in advance.

Hello there.
When you create the model in Cinema 4D if you want to Export it and open it (including the texture) into Photoshop you should make sure the object is first converted to a Polygon object in Cinema 4D then Exported as an .obj file. That will contain the polygon information which is understood by Photoshop (and applications that recognise 3D models). Then just open the file in Photoshop and it will bring you into the 3D workspace where you can view the model, light it and render it...

Hope that helps!
