MAXON & REDSHIFT TOGETHER

Recommended Posts

You are not taking into account people on Mac and AMD users. It is quite an investment to get a PC with adequate GPU + 3rd party render engine and learn another OS....

I was curious if anyone has used Redshift using an iMac?

 

I downloaded the trial version and it seems to work ok with an iMac but was wondering if there are any issues before I buy the full version.

 

Here is my setup:

High Sierra 10.13.6

3.4 GHz Intel Core i7

32 GB Ram

NVIDIA GeForce 680MX 2048MB

Cinema 4D R20

Well with that GPU you're not going to be happy for long and run out of VRAM really fast. Redshift, just as Octane, benefits from high-end GPU's and the 680 is not even midrange anymore.

I think sadly Mac is a waste of time for 3D these days unless the threatened Mac Pro is any good - but I guess that will be expensive. Also I like you point Hrvoje about the cost of investing in a PC with adequate GPUs. If you think about it a couple of GeForce RTX 2080Ti GPUs will set you back the price of a good workstation so if you are planning on four of them it gets a bit expensive…

Do you guys happen to know why final render in cycles is a little brighter than live preview? 

Not sure if you've found the answer to this already.

You need to render in 32Bit, I usually use TIFF. Then your render will look the same as your preivew window.

Have anyone heard if the annual maintenance fees are still at play after R21? My annual maintenance is coming on the end of August and I just find it super silly since I have payed for both software in full  and MAXON now owns Redshift. Also, Is the rumor about native C4D noises being revoked to work with Redshift correctly? Upping res on C4D noises in Redshift causes major slow downs. It pretty much bricks my pc when I play with the res :(  If they fix this I'm trowing party at my house, who is coming?
