Lunar Animation director James Rodgers says his company is seeing “crazy results” rendering with Redshift on a Mac Pro with Metal support. “A typical frame from the very effects heavy game cinematic we created for Mythic Legends, an action-packed strategy mobile game by Outfit7, previously took 26 minutes to render per frame,” he said. “Now it’s rendering in only 58 seconds!”
Redshift provides a wide range of features that include ray switches, flexible shading networks, motion blur, AOVs, deep output, and more. It is a biased renderer that allows artists to adjust each individual technique for the best performance and quality blend for production purposes.
Redshift is optimized for high-end performance on both Intel and M1 Macs. Maxon says that Redshift for Intel-based Macs will be available this week, while Redshift for M1 Macs will launch with the release of macOS Big Sur 11.3.
