*Integration plugins include support for Maya, 3ds Max, Softimage, Cinema 4D, Houdini, Katana and any future plugins.

**Maintenance includes technical support and all updates. After one year, you must extend your maintenance agreement for another year for $250 for Node-Locked and $300 for Floating to continue receiving updates and support. If you allow your maintenance to expire past the grace period, you must purchase a new license of Redshift at full retail price.
You have a grace period of one year to back-date renew your existing maintenance. However, your new maintenance cycle always begins on the date your existing maintenance expired. For example, if your maintenance expired April 10, 2020 and you purchase a maintenance extension on September 15, 2020, you are back-dating the start of your new agreement to April 10, 2020 and your new maintenance agreement will expire on April 10 2021.

+To take advantage of more than 8 GPUs on a single machine, you can launch multiple instances of Redshift each rendering a different job on a different subset of available GPUs.

Licensing explained

  • What does Node-Locked mean?

    Node-locked licenses are tied to a specific machine but are rehostable, that is they can be transferred from 1 machine to another using the Redshift licensing tool. Transferring a license requires a working internet connection on both the source and target of the transfer at the time of the license transfer. Node-locked licenses may be purchased directly from the Redshift website for immediate use. We accept most major credit cards.

  • What is a floating license?

    Floating licenses are dynamically allocated on demand from a pool of licenses managed by a license server running on your network to individual machines running Redshift. The number of floating licenses you have defines the number machines that can use Redshift concurrently. Floating licenses are available by contacting sales. There is a 5 license minimum for floating licenses. Customers with existing Redshift floating licenses can add additional floating licenses with no minimum purchase.

  • How do I get hold of an education license?

    Educational licenses are only available to institutions for training and instruction purposes. The use of educational licenses for any other purpose including any form of commercial work is strictly forbidden. At the moment we do not sell individual licenses to students. Please contact sales for additional information including pricing and eligibility requirements.
