Maxon has announced the latest updates to several products that are included in its Maxon One subscription, including the 3D software Cinema 4D and the GPU renderer Redshift. The big news for those with one of the latest MacBook Pros is optimisation for the M3 chip in the latter.

The update should provide notable performance enhancements running the renderer on the latest MacBook Pro 14 or 16 by taking advantage of Apple’s support for hardware-accelerated ray tracing. The result should be faster renders and better interactivity (see our Maxon Cinema 4D 2024 review and our Redshift review for more details on the software).
