Zdepth makes no sense for semi transparent renders.. you will need to render out a deep camera map pass.

So I have to change to Mantra to get Deep, or is there a way for Redshift to get a fake Deep for volume?

Need to use Mantra.

Mantra renders volumes fast, as long you don't use indirect lights.
