Redshift is the world-renowned GPU rendering software for 3ds Max, Maya and Sofimage (as well as a Houdini alpha version).
It is licensed per-machine with no limit on the number of GPUs*. No distinction is made between workstations and render nodes; 1 license is good for 1 machine. The Maya, 3ds Max and Softimage plugins, as well as the Houdini alpha plugin (and any future plugins) are included free with all Redshift licenses, so you can use either or both at no extra charge.
12 months of maintenance is included in every new license, providing unlimited access to the latest builds, updates and upgrades (as long as maintenance is valid, all version upgrades are free of charge).
Permanent licenses are available as rehostable node-locked or floating licenses. More information on these license types is available below.
*Each instance of Redshift can currently use up to 8 GPUs.
