Redshift offers both node-locked and floating perpetual licenses. In addition, monthly and annual subscriptions licenses are available from Maxon as part of the Cinema/Redshift bundle subscription. Node-locked licenses are tied to a specific machine at any given time. They are however rehostable, which means they can be transfered from 1 machine to another using the Redshift licensing tool. Transfering a license requires a working internet connection on both the source and target of the transfer at the time of the license transfer. Node-locked licenses may be purchased directly from the Redshift website for immediate use. We accept most major credit cards. Please refer to the Node-Locked Licenses section for more information.

Floating licenses are dynamically allocated on demand from a pool of licenses managed by a license server running on your network to individual client machines running Redshift. The number of floating licenses you have defines the number machines that can use Redshift concurrently. Floating licenses are available by contacting sales. There is a 5 license minimum for floating licenses. Customers with existing Redshift floating licenses can add additional floating licenses with no minimum purchase. Please refer to the Floating Licenses section for details on setting up a license server and configuring each client machine.

The subscription licenses available from Maxon as part of the Cinema/Redshift bundle subscription are only valid when running Redshift in Cinema 4D R21 and higher. These licenses use Maxon's entitlement system.  Please refer to the Cinema/Redshift Subscription Licenses section for more details.
