Archicad 25 Redshift

Hi all!
In David Tomic’s youtube introduktion to AC25,
He mentions ”Redshift” as an upcoming (later) rendering option (at least in Australia). .
As I’ve never heard of this, I’d very much appreciate if someone would enlighten me on this subject. I seem to be unable to find any info on Graphisoft.com.
A link perhaps? Or does anyone know more?

There's still features announced in the AC24 release presentation that I'm waiting for. So let's not hold our breath on Redshift.

Hi all, Octane user here

I am genuinly interested in updating and simplifying workflow. GPU based rendering is the way to go, Enscape is aggresively improving and I like their whollistic approach. There should be no file format conversion/transfer issues for user, assets that are not feasible to use inside ArchiCAD are accessible through their plug-in and available range is being rapidly expanded. Atmospherical effects are being enriched and improved. The only aspect that I dislike is the rendering engine itself.

I am surprised that Twinmotion is not surpassing Enscape with assets choices, as a gaming company they should have been able to offer almost anything you can think of.

I hope that Redshift may potentially address rendering quality if they do not neglect asset libraries development. There is also an issue of pricing, Redshift for other platforms is close to Enscape and Twinmotion.

Not sure though how complex Redshift interface is.

Are there already any Redshift renders from Archicad users? I am not able to get even a bad picture from it. Old Cinerender gets better results (still not too great).. Thanks

What's your equipment?

 

For me RedShift + Mac has not been so great of an experience.

Still need to go on and try RedShift + PC with an NVIDIA card. I've got it purchased by now though, for a try at least.

32 GB RAM, NVIDIA M5000 8GB ... i think this must be more than sufficient, because Enscape works od highest setting without a lag and renders great pictures within few seconds in ultra HD.

Thanks, Ok. I've got an A4000 to try it out with a Z4 , pretty soon I hope so.

With Cinema 4D it all seemed so ironed out, but not so with Archicad I'm afraid. I mean RedShift..

With C4 Redshift looks fantastic.. thats why I was wondering results in AC26. Results are... not satisfying. but maybe i just dont know how to set it up. Grass materials not working too.

I think and remember that AC/Cinerender grass is not supported at the moment within RedShift. And I have to say that the RedShift transition is an ongoing project as best within Archicad. Or something like that.
