IMPORTANT: To support the new particle system in Cinema 4D 2024 the minimum required version of the 2024 plugin has been increased to 2024.4

  • [C4D] Added localization for German and Korean (in all supported versions of C4D)

  • [C4D] Fixed a color-management issue with Substances in Nodes, ShaderGraph, and emulated Standard materials

  • [C4D] Fixed bug where the default material was ignored when material override was enabled

  • [C4D] Fixed bug where material previews in Nodes might be blank under certain conditions

  • [C4D] Fixed bug where objects with no materials were ignored by the material override options

  • [C4D] Fixed bug where the IPR would not detect changes to the RSObject tag under certain conditions

  • [Maya] Added mechanism for specifying light lists on Toon material

  • [Maya] Fixed bug with broken Custom AOV

  • [Maya] RS shader menu button now defaults to rsStandardMaterial

  • [Max] Support Autodesk fixes from 3ds Max 2024.2 that address quantization/overflow of colors sent to and from Redshift Color Picker

  • [Max] Redshift Light Lister now opens color picker as a modeless (non-blocking) window to work around 3ds Max SDK limitations

  • [Houdini] Added support for Houdini 20.0.625 and 20.0.653 and dropped support for 20.0.506 and 20.0.547

  • [Houdini] Additional improvements to the error handling functions to prevent Houdini crashes after any Redshift render-time critical issue

  • [Houdini] Added new option to the RS OBJ spare parameters to disable the automatic instancing of the procedural packed alembics

  • [Houdini] Added error messages when failing to write image or proxy files on disk

  • [Houdini] Fixed bug that could affect the IPR updating of the materials params just after assigning them to any new object

  • [Houdini] Fixed bug that could affect the IPR updating of the materials after some VOP nodes rewiring events

  • [Houdini] Fixed bug that could affect the RSLight and RSDomeLight texture color space options

  • [Houdini] Fixed bug that could crash Redshift if a new scene is loaded while the IPR is rendering

  • [Houdini] Fixed bug that could affect the rendering of shader nodes already available in previous scenes with the same node name

  • [Houdini] Fixed bug that could affect the "Redshift_setGPU" hscript command if used after initialize Redshift

  • [Houdini] Fixed bug that could affect the transformations of the alembic procedural instances

  • [Houdini] Fixed bug that could affect the viewport rendering feature on Linux

  • [Hydra] Added support for the Solaris/Hydra "Stop/Resume" rendering workflow as replacement for the "Pause/Resume" feature not supported by the core

  • [Hydra] Fixed bug that could cause a crash if the tangent attributes can't be computed due to the lack of normals or uvs

  • [Hydra] Fixed bug that could cause that matting or visivility do not work with PointInstancer using instanceable primitives as prototypes

  • [Hydra] Fixed bug that could cause viewport updating problems in the instances visibility or matte options

  • [Hydra] Fixed bug that could cause problems while working with multiple UV maps

  • [Hydra] Fixed bug in the Redshift and RenderVars LOPs single layer EXR files when there are no additional AOVs
