Render4you Redshift Render Farm has rolled out an update, bringing its Redshift version up to 3.0.58.

Please be aware that all tasks utilizing Redshift release 3 will now be using version 3.0.58. If you require a different version for your specific needs, we are happy to provide you with a custom version.

For Redshift 2 the latest release version 2.6.56 is used.

Summary of the updates

Autodesk Maya:

  • Fixed an issue where a freshly referenced scene that uses an external OSL shader file wasn't automatically compiling the shader.

  • Added "Deep Merge Alpha Threshold" to AOV Processing.
  • Scenes extraction with proxy mesh nodes is significantly faster.
  • The Bucket Size can now be set to 512x512.
  • Scene extraction on complex scenes when there aren't any proxy nodes can be up to 344x faster.
  • Scene loading after a render when using referenced scenes and imported geometry is significantly faster.
  • Added "Create Layer Override..." and other attribute-related popup items to the Insert Tokens popup menu.
  • Per-frame AOV initialization is now up to 5x faster.

Autodesk 3ds Max:

  • Updated UI for all lights.
  • Added missing parameters for Physical Light, RS Physical Sun, RS Physical Sky, Dome Light, IES Light, and Portal Light.
  • RS Physical Sky "Derive values from Sun" now affects Sun Disc Scale.

  • Addressed issues related to color correction, GUI, and rendering parameters.
  • Added support for the "Deep Merge Alpha Threshold" render option.
  • Removed some obsolete visibility flags.
  • Improved strands rendering and fixed artifacts in curves rotations and normals.
  • Addressed various issues in the RS ROP node.
  • Enhanced compatibility with OSL nodes and materials.
  • Improved the parameter UI for RSLights.
  • Addressed issues related to exposure and GI in older scenes.

Foundry Katana:

  • Added support for a bucket size of 512 px.
  • Addressed GPU memory and extraction performance issues.
  • Improved compatibility with scenes containing multiple objects referencing the same material.

Hydra (USD):

  • Addressed visibility option defaults.
  • Added the new "Deep Merge Alpha Threshold" render option.
  • Removed some obsolete visibility flags.
  • Fixed minor bugs and issues related to mesh lights, light textures, and USD files.
  • Streamlined the parameter UI for Light LOPs.


  • Fixed a material assignment bug in hair export code.
  • Added support for exporting UV data for hair from 'particle emitter' object.
  • Added support for the Vertex Color attribute.
  • Added support for Motion Blur (transformation).
  • Synchronized the list of Color Spaces in the nodes with the Color Management list.

Real-Time (RT):

  • Added RS Maxon Noise shader.

General (All Supported Software):

  • Added a deep merge alpha threshold option.
  • The core now supports switching the list of used GPUs dynamically (between frames) and without requiring a 3D app restart. (Note: There is a known issue with this feature.)
  • Added 'time to first pixel' performance and robustness improvements for scenes with many complex materials.
  • Texture sampler can now use up to 64GB of VRAM cache, improving rendering performance.
  • Fixed rare bugs that could cause corrupt texturing and crashes.
  • Redshift will now build and attempt to pre-load the entire scene geometry into VRAM if it fits, improving performance.
  • Fixed bugs related to lights, delta lights, and textures.
  • Added support for RG channel textures, with the B channel now containing valid data.

    Redshift offers a variety of powerful features and works seamlessly with popular 3D modeling and animation software such as 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema4D, and Blender
