The Rise of Redshift: An Interview With Trevor Kerr of MANVSMACHINE

October 30, 2018 - By 

We chat with Trevor Kerr from MANVSMACHINE about 3D workflows, third-party rendering, and the new Greyscalegorilla Guide to Redshift.

Trevor Kerr, the Technical Director at MANVSMACHINE, chats with Chad Ashley about all things rendering. They talk about the strengths and weaknesses of Arnold, Octane, and Redshift, and also dive into the many topics covered in the new Greyscalegorilla Guide to Redshift.

In this informal discussion Trevor Kerr and Chad Ashley discuss the meteoric rise of Redshift in production as well as an in-depth Redshift training product the two recently teamed up on.

  • Is it worth pursuing Redshift on a system that only has 2 GPUs? I was considering a build with two 2080s or 2080TI’s with the NV link (if redshift supports that yet)

    • We all have dual GPU setups right now (nick and chris with 1080ti’s and me with 2080ti’s). It’s absolutely enough for Redshift. Have fun!

  • Hey Guys, I am very intrigued about this course. I started with C4D and octane this year but it crashes on me a lot. I love that it is not so technical though.

    I have a very minimalistic Style (Think Chris Guyot). Do you think this Renderer and the Training could work for me? I use 1×1080 GPU? I

    • No problem, we have a 60-day money back guarantee. Give it a shot, if you don’t like it, you can return it. Have a good one!

  • I want to add something. My most used features in Octane are probably displacement and the Dof Bokeh Settings. Do i get similar results in Redshift with that and is it explained in the course ? Thank you so much

    • Yep, displacement and bokeh are explained in the course (we have two videos dedicated to camera settings and one that is dedicated to understanding displacement). As for similar results, yes. Very similar. But with RS you get more control. You can even load in custom bokeh images to drive your bokeh shapes.

  • Hi there, thanks for this amazing course. I am excited to get started. I have an option to buy a machine with 1080Ti or Quadro5000 – what will you experts recommend, please! Thank you in advance for your response

  • The relationship between Bodypaint and Redshift ?
    Realistic hair, skin and eyes – think this (and why would an artist use Mari and not Bodypaint in this scenario) ? :-

    Is this type of infromation covered please ?
