Getting Started With Redshift Renderer For Houdini

Houdini Trainer, Rohan Dalvi will be talking a look into the Redshift renderer within Houdini. If you’re looking to get started using Redshifted or have an interest as it compares with other GPU rendering engines like Octane this is one worth watching!

The future of GPU rendering is already here. Redshift combines the best aspects of CPUs and GPUs to give you a fast, production-level workflow that will change how we think about performance for years to come.

There’s one thing we know about programmers—we’re always looking ahead at what comes next. Nowhere could be more true than when considering modern day render engines like the mighty “Reshifts” (or rather “R”) effect from…

With Redshift, you can render huge scenes even though your system might not have the PGU horsepower. The software touts itself as “Ludicrously fast production-ready rendering” and makes use of your computer’s RAM when its VRAM maxes out for a single pass through all frames – this still allows you to complete large jobs without having any issues with slowdowns or crashes!

Redshift is an advanced rendering engine that offers many features for creators. It has production ready shaders, in a node based environment; it supports hair and volumetric effects like other engines on the market do too! The AOV support makes Redshifts shine as well- designers can design their own render passes with ease using industry standard tools or make use of prebuilt ones to save time (think ShaderToy).

The Houdini REDshift plugin is a great way to start learning how rendering works in Redsh.
