Use CV-VRCam to render equirectangular 32-bit HDR images for Reflections and Image-based Lighting.

With the CV-VRCam plugin, you can easily create custom HDRI maps from any Cinema 4D project file. CV-VRCam is designed to render a 360 degree image in equirectangular projection, which is the same format you'll need to create a map that wraps on the inside of a sphere or Sky object for image-based lighting and reflections. Many people generate these maps by baking the reflections of a sphere, but using CV-VRcam you can Render to Picture Viewer and take advantage of all of C4D's antialiasing and render settings.
