For Redshift 2 the latest release version 2.6.56 is used.

Summary of the updates

  • Maya:

  • Overscan values are scaled appropriately when using Render View's Fixed Scaling option.
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in strand width being ignored for Ornatrix hair systems.
  • 3ds Max:

  • Scene Archive now handles Proxies, Volume Grids, IES lights, and OSL shaders.
  • Fixed an issue where missing LUT file is not detected by 3ds Max when loading the scene.
  • Fixed issue where resetting the scene did not sync the default Post Effects settings back to Render View.
  • Fixed issue where files used by animated Proxies and Volume Grids were not reported to 3ds Max as scene assets.
  • Fixed issue where XRef Material did not work when used as an input to another material.
  • XRef Material's "override" parameter (introduced in Max 2016) is now supported.
  • Potential fix for corrupted shaderball previews in Multi/Sub-Object Material parameters UI.
  • Added new "Legacy" parameters (Non-Area Light Intensity, Soft Shadow Technique) on RS lights where applicable. Enabled for existing lights, disabled for newly created lights.
  • Cinema 4D:

  • Added "Non-Area Light Intensity" and "Soft Shadow Technique" options in the new Details/Legacy section of RSLights for certain light types. Existing scenes will preserve the original look.
  • Houdini:

  • Added support for Houdini 19.0.531 and dropped support for 19.0.383.
  • Automatic disabling of mesh/particles deformation motion blur in all the scene's static objects.
  • Katana:

  • Automatic disabling of mesh/curves/point clouds deformation motion blur in all the scene's static objects.
  • Added the documentation and source code of a basic custom display driver to the plugin docs.
  • Plugin updated to let the custom display driver work in batch rendering as well.
  • Minor update in the Sun Light GUI to expose the sun intensity and size parameters.
  • Additional update related to the linked GLEW lib in the Linux build to use the same lib file included in Katana.
  • Hydra (Solaris):

  • Added support for Solaris 19.0.531 and dropped support for 19.0.383.
  • Added support for the native Redshift EXR output files functions, including support for AOVs in the exported RS Proxy scenes.
  • Added support for the "EXR Channel Prefix" option while exporting native EXR files.
  • Fixed a crash while rendering math nodes (or other nodes with multiple internal outputs) as materials.
  • Removed the python dependencies from the Linux build to prevent problems in Solaris py3 or in systems without python 2.7.
  • Fixed a problem with the vertex and user data shader nodes if the attribute name was the default "Cd".
  • Fixed a crash in the OSL node while switching the OSL shader file.
  • Fixed a problem with file type parameters in the OSL nodes.
  • Blender:

  • Fixed error when Hair material slot is empty.
  • Fixed issues related to Puzzle Matte AOV and multilayered EXR output.
  • RenderView:

  • Fixed issues related to switching between Snapshots, color curve control, and LUT's combo box.
  • General (All Supported Software):

  • Fixed bugs introduced in recent versions that could affect lighting, texture processing, proxies, and redshiftCmdLine utility.
  •  
  • Updated RSLightSun GUI to expose the sun intensity and size parameters.
  • Fixed an issue in the OSL node that caused code to be deleted if loading was canceled.
