Just curious, why the move from octane to redshift?

standard is indispensable for cel shaded cartoon stuff, and c4d is used a lot for that. maybe they'll stop development, but they won't drop it all together. but maybe that's what you meant in the first place

I'm still using Octane on subscription, they both have pluses and minuses. Octane is missing some things I find very useful like include/exclude. Redshift has that ability, but then it can't work properly with psd files, I have to separate all my maps out into individual files which is a pain. Octane doesn't have a layered material node, so complex mix materials are required, Redshift is easier for that stuff.

The development of Octane seems glacial compared to Redshift, and I also find Octane to be quite unstable at times. However the settings couldn't be easier, Redshift has a lot more knobs.

To be honest I wouldn't be using either if Physical wasn't so damn slow.
