Introduction to Redshift: The Basics

The goal of this course is to get you comfortable and familiar with the Redshift render engine, its layout and workflow tips and tricks.

This is for beginners and people curious about the Redshift engine to get you acquainted with the software, its strengths and how to incorporate it into your workflow.


The Redshift Materials Masterclass

The first step toward professional rendering is chosing the right renderer. We’ve been using Redshift® in production for several years now and highly recommend it if you want to lift your rendering game. However there has been a lack of training available for Redshift … until now.

We’ll start by covering each of the Material Types in Redshift incl. Diffuse, Reflection, Refraction, SSS, Emissive, Car Paint and the Material Blender.

We’ll cover practically every Redshift node to create your shaders and materials. We’ll see examples of what each node does and how to use them in your workflow.

We’ll build materials together and share loads of tips on how to get great looking shaders and physically accurate results. All Project Files are included.

Really good tutorial for an introduction to Redshift. I’ve not been doing 3D long and Derek really takes an exceptionally daunting bit of software and gives you a well grounded gentle introduction to it.

Derek Kirk has been very helpful instructor. You put your doubt he will clarify your doubt. I have been asking him doubt about redshift & he has always helped me. Take his class I’m sure you all will not regret.
