Redshift's efficient memory management allows rendering of scenes containing hundreds of millions of polygons and TBs of texture data.
Achieve blazingly fast indirect lighting using biased point-based GI techniques, as well as brute-force GI.
Harnessing the raw power of the GPU and using intelligent sampling techniques makes Redshift the worlds faster renderer.
The user can export groups of objects and lights to Redshift Proxy files which can be easily referenced by other scenes. Proxies allow for powerful shader, matte and visibility flag overrides as often required in production.
Redshift supports multi-step transformation blur and 2-step deformation blur.
Redshift support OpenVDB rendering in all 3d apps and native volume rendering in Houdini. Redshift lights can cast volumetric lighting around them.
Thin hair can produce noisy renders. Redshift supports 'MPW' rendering which smooths out the look of thin and hard-to-sample hairs.
Redshift's tessellation supports edge and vertex creasing with separate UV smoothing control.
Objects have advanced matte features and tracing options such as self-shadowing and primary/secondary ray visibility.
Redshift allows for any type of AOV data to be baked out from individual objects.
Users can export their scene and render it independently of their 3d app using the redshiftCmdLine tool.
A C++ SDK is available for studios that require deeper integration of Redshift with their pipelines. Please contact us for more info.
Flexible, production-ready shader, compatible with PBR workflows of Allegorithmic Substance and Unreal Engine.
Control how materials behave for certain ray types. Useful for customizing GI or double-sided polygon shading.
Multi-lobe anisotropic specular using the physically-based Marschener BRDF.
Support for up to 3 layers of sub-surface scattering in a single shader for realistic looking skin.
Get smooth edges without requiring geometry tessellation. This technology is licensed from NVidia.
Add geometric and lighting detail to surfaces using displacement mapped height, vector textures or procedural shading nodes.
Virtually unlimited number and size of textures regardless of VRAM. Built-in efficient UDIM/UVTile tiling support.
Shaders can access per-vertex (weight maps, multiple UVs, etc) or per-object attributes for maximum flexibility.
Render foliage and other opacity-cutout effects blazingly fast!
Redshift supports many dcc shading nodes for math, color ramps, color remaps and conversion, gamma and many others.
Efficiently light an entire scene using image-based environment textures.
Use any mesh in the scene as a light source, with the same features and sampling efficiency as regular area lights.
Redshift lights can affect atmospheric volumetric fogging for the popular 'God ray' effect.
Natural-looking physical sun light and sky emulation.
Fisheye, spherical, cylindrical cameras, lens distortion.
Stereo Spherical rendering for VR applications.
For 3d compositing and efficient management of AOVs.
Support for ICE interoperability for Maya to send ICE effects data between Maya and Softimage.
Material shading components (albedo, diffuse, reflections etc), depth, motion vectors, puzzle-matte and many more.
Familiar photographic exposure controls such as ISO, shutter, vignette, color balance and textured bokeh depth-of-field.

Support for the precise and powerful hair modeling 3ds Max plug-in.
Automatic and configurable tessellation of the Houdini primitive surfaces (primitives, nurbs, etc.).
Direct rendering of OpenVDB files and the Houdini Volume and VDB primitives. Support of volume instancing and velocity grids.
Render of any kind of Houdini primitive as Redshift strands.
Support of the Houdini instancing, including the Instance OBJ node, and the "instance" and "instancepath" attributes, extracted as mesh instances or particle point clouds.
Full flexibility ranging from area lights to photometric/IES lights, 'portal' lights and texture-projected 'gobos'.
The plugin is compatible with all the Houdini non-GUI tools (hython, hscript, etc.) and includes a set of custom HScript commands to control the renderer.
Extensive support for Cinema 4D's geometry objects including Instances, Generators, Deformers, Cloners and MoGraph objects.
Support for powerful built-in particle instancing and per-particle attributes.
