I only recently realized this, so I thought I'd share just in case anyone else runs into it. A lot of my early Cycles 4D shaders relied on PBR techniques using the Anisotropic shader for metals. After modifying some of these older shaders over to the new Principled BSDF, I realized that the anisotropy occurs at a 90° angle to the older shader. When using the UV map to drive the tangent input on a shader, you'll need to take this into account.
Luckily there's an easy fix. If you don't want to modify your UV coordinates, simply use .25 in your Anisotropic Rotation value on the shader. This is equivalent to rotating the UVs 90°.
