New in KeyShot 10.1

KeyShot 10 brings you even more ways to create amazing shots. KeyShot 10.1 brings Collision Detection and Part Settling, Smart Export to multiple AR formats at once, USD Import, and multi-selection for both Light Manager and Keyframe Animation. This is in addition to the features already introduced in KeyShot 10’s initial release including consolidated light management, advanced keyframe and environment animation capabilities, the all-new Smart Export for a wide variety of 3D output options, and a completely redesigned Move Tool for improved accessibility and placement.

The Latest KeyShot Update

Collision Detection and Settle
KeyShot 10.1 includes basic Collision Detection of objects, along with the ability to Settle items on other objects and the ground. Included in the new Move Tool, Collision Detection and Settle is useful for scene setup when objects need a more realistic arrangement on the ground or amongst other objects. Collision Detection may also be used separately as an easy way to align objects while keeping them aware and separate from other objects in the scene.

Smart Export/Import Enhancements
KeyShot 10.1 introduces the ability to export a KeyShot file into separate USDz and GLB files as part of one export process that performs the Baking and UV unwrapping together, allowing easy creation of files that work for both Apple iOS (USDz) devices and Android/Web (glTF/GLB). Baking and UV Unwrapping can now also be canceled. USD import has also been added to the Import options for KeyShot to allow you to advance the appearance of their model then export it to multiple AR platforms.

Lighting Enhancements
For the Light Manager, KeyShot 10.1 introduces the ability to select and control multiple lights simultaneously, making proportional adjustments to the entirety of a scene’s lighting or select lighting, fast and efficient. KeyShot 10.1 also improves Light Gizmo and Light Manager usage by introducing the ability to sync changes and undo changes using Ctrl-Z (Windows)/command-Z (Mac) or via the Edit, Undo menu.

Light movement on your product.

Whether you use one of the many included environments, or one of your own custom HDRI’s, add an environment rotation to control how light moves across your product.

Twist Camera Animation


Add a little drama.

KeyShot 10 adds the ability to animate the twist parameter of your camera for a subtle (or dramatic) effect. You have full control over angle and duration.

Collision Detection

Collision Detection


Let the parts drop.

New to 10.1, Collision Detection allows easy object recognition, along with the ability to Settle items on other objects and the ground. Set up scenes with a more realistic arrangement of objects on the ground.

RealCloth

RealCloth 2.0


Another dimension of fabrics.

As if the original RealCloth wasn’t realistic enough, version 2.0 includes 3D ply for yarn-like geometry and increased fibre level detail.

Improved Caustics


Amazing light rays.

While KeyShot’s caustics have always been beautiful, KeyShot 10 converges them faster for both CPU and GPU.

Caustics

Multiple Surface Scattering


Bounces of light.

Control multiple bounces of light on rough dialectric surfaces before they get scattered back. Multiple scattering enables energy conservation of light interacting with rough dielectrics, which means it allows you to achieve a more realistic and physically plausible appearance of such materials.

Scattering
Firefly Filter

Firefly Filter


Smooth those specks.

Denoise now includes a Firefly Filter slider to quickly remove and smooth away specks of unwanted light from your scene.

Improved Toon Material


Tuned toon.

The popular KeyShot Toon material now provides finer control of outline behavior to be more consistent with line art illustration techniques.
