Hi sas, and welcome here! Can you add-remove the objects one by one?
Maybe the lighting is too low. Or materials are black during manual conversion. I see that you convert them from Corona.
It seems to work as the counters in IPR window are filled.
I may also look into your scene and detect the problem quickly if you send it to

I have the same problem. It renders black and the preview is black. I can use other render methods and they work fine.

Vi, maybe you can post any screens from the scene? Maybe you light source have too small emission? Or maybe you don't have an Nvidia GPU or up to date GPU drivers? Have you checked this? The download page describes the drivers and Cinema build requirements.

I also faced the same issue, Centileo doesn't work with a real light source. In your scene file HDR image is applied via a material to the sky object. It wont work, just add an environment tag or use environment from centileo menu.
Also if you have textures applied it should be added via centileo material. Standard Cinema 4d material will render the color only, not the texture.

CentiLeo light sources (area/rectangle, spot, omni, infinite) require the centileo light tag to connect. The Sky Object requires centileo environment tag.
