I’ll have to double check with Arndt but I do believe there is a publisher deal setup for translation, I know there is a publisher interested.
Don’t look for one form me anytime soon. I’m adapting as much as I can from my original manuscript as basically all the tools have changed and a lot of extra capabilities (and knowledge) since I originally wrote it. I’m not planning on having anything published until a 10.5 so that its thorough, accurate, and up to date when it comes out. I’m honestly very impressed with how dedicated Arndt has been to get this book out so fast, I know how hard it was trying to get a manuscript for R9 done around release time, and its cycle was a lot more forgiving than this one (not to mention the more dramatic changes to interface and common tools like OM)
Arndt is without a doubt the best Cinema 4D author in any language.
