As previously reported, from today (August 30 2021), Maxon has ceased the sale of Redshift perpetual licenses in favour of monthly or annual rental.
The announcement gave the following reason for the change: “Cutting-edge technology and performance requires agile development and delivery. Redshift’s functionality is fully dependent upon third-party hardware and software solutions. In order to maintain compatibility with the latest hardware, drivers and host application updates our Redshift development team is constantly updating, optimizing and ensuring stability. In order to provide the best customer experience, we believe all customers should be running on the latest version. ”
Pricing information is now available, with annual licenses available for $264, and monthly licenses for $45. Redshift is also available as part of a Maxon One subscription that includes all of their products for $1199 annually or $149 monthly. You can see the prices on the Plans and Prices page and read more about the decision in an FAQ on the Maxon website.
