Accessing Redshift Licensing for Maya

To better support flexible licensing use on BYOD devices, implementation of the Redshift licensing changed in December, 2022. Licenses have been moved to Maxon One Teams licensing, which allows for a floating pool of licenses instead of 1:1 allocation to devices.
This will allow students better access to Redshift licensing outside the classroom.

Setting up a student license

Note: Licensing is limited, so license access will not be granted to students outside key programs.

As a student enrolled in a program requiring Maya/Redshift, your program will register your account for you. Then, Maxon One will send an email to your email and you will need to complete registration for the licensing and set a password.


The Maxon App, Maya, or the Autodesk 2023 Prerequisites cannot be locally installed on the machine. All other versions should be removed from the Cloudpaging Player (the software installed on your computer that runs the apps from AppsAnywhere) or the local hard drive before starting.

To remove other versions from CloudPaging Player:

  1. Open Cloudpaging Player from your Start menu or taskbar.
  2. Click the line with the application on it.
  3. Click Stop and then wait for it to finish.
  4. Click Remove.

Using Maya

To start using Maya:

  1. Go to AppsAnywhere in your browser and launch AppsAnywhere > BYOD: Maya 2023 w/Plugins.
    • Note: This package has prerequisites of the Autodesk 2023 Prerequisites Pack.
  2. Once Maya has launched, open a file and perform a render. The render will fail due to no no available licensing, but will give a prompt to login to Maxon One.
  3. Sign in with the account you created to register with Maxon One.
  4. Start the render again. Now that you are logged in and licensed it will work.
