Render4you Redshift render farm support for 3.5.10

Render4you Redshift Render Farm has rolled out an update, bringing its Redshift version up to 3.5.10.

Please be aware that all tasks utilizing Redshift release 3.5 will now be using version 3.5.10. If you require a different version for your specific needs, we are happy to provide you with a custom version.

Earlier versions will be processed using Redshift versions 2.6.56 and 3.0.67, respectively.

Summary of the updates

  • Maya:

  • Fixed a bug that caused Wireframe shader node connections to fail.
  • 3ds Max:

  • Fixed an issue with the Hue slider in Redshift Color Picker when configured to 0-1 range combined with degrees.
  • Fixed issues that could crash 3ds Max after loading a render preset and where the UI doesn't update correctly after loading a render preset.
  • Cinema 4D:

  • Note: Redshift 3.5.10 and later are not compatible with Cinema 4D 2023.0.0 or 2023.0.1; please upgrade to Cinema 4D 2023.1.0 for ongoing Redshift compatibility.

  • Added support for the Pyro object in Cinema 4D 2023.1, as well as a Pyro Volume material preset.
  • Addressed an issue where the Cinema 4D Volume Loader object would use an incorrect VDB frame when motion blur is enabled.
  • Added support in Cinema 4D 2023.1 for creating Redshift materials when double-clicking in the material manager, based on the Standard material shader.
  • Houdini:

  • Added support for Houdini 19.5.403 and dropped support for 19.0.662.
  • Disabled the "Ignore Pivot Point Attribute" instancing option by default.
  • Addressed the AOVs TIFF and PNG "Bits per Channel" options.

  • Added support for material overrides to the user procedurals.
  • Introduced new options in the RedshiftObjectSettings node to configure object-level motion blur options.
  • Hydra (Solaris):

  • Added support for Solaris 19.5.403 and dropped support for 19.0.662.
  • Improved scene update performance while working with complex scenes.
  • Enhanced IPR scene update functions to support any kind of data updates (UVs, vertex attributes, etc).
  • Improved support for the "Render all frames with a single process" Solaris feature, supporting any kind of animated data.
  • Fixed various issues, including an IPR crash while working with the sun/sky light and rendering instancers with UV maps in the instance points.
  • Added experimental support for the RSLight OBJ node scene import feature.
  • Blender:

  • Set RS Standard material node tree as default for "Add RS Nodetree" option.
  • Updated the link to the new plugin documentation page.
  • Added support for rendering multiple scene layers using the layer name instead of the first index.
