New in KeyShot
Explore detail and further customise your product’s material and finish by painting or stamping directly on the surface of your model. Add wear marks, create unique surface weathering, or layer effects to create more realistic surface patinas to any surface within your scene.
Material Management & Colour, Material, and Finish (CMF) Output
Eliminate the manual process of aligning rendered output to its corresponding materials, allowing you to define custom schema, utilise Material Library metadata, and easily generate ready-made “tech packs” for design review.
Record the physics of an object and apply it as a keyframe animation. Control gravity, friction, bounciness, and more with this tool that introduces fully simulated animations along with more accuracy in scattering objects. Simulations may be applied to individual or multiple Model Sets, objects, or groups of objects and simulated as parts or an entire group.
KeyShot Web Viewer
Upload scenes to KeyShot Cloud, and share interactive scenes with others across browser, desktop, and mobile devices with a single link. KeyShot Web Viewer is highly optimised to provide the most realistic visuals available and smoothest interaction possible for viewing 3D.
Automate various KeyShot workflows via the KeyShot Scripting Console (with a user interface) or through Headless Scripting Mode (without a user interface). Applications include automating render output, speeding up the generation of product variations, and more.
and much more including environment light animation, deformable animation import, skin tones, updated importers, GPU cutaway material, and glTF/USDz enhancements.
More Features in KeyShot
Collision Detection and Settle
KeyShot 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 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.
For the Light Manager, KeyShot 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 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.
Sun & Sky Day Arc Animation
Adjust the date, start, and end time or apply individual keyframes for precise control. It’s never been this easy to animate daylight in your scenes.
Add and adjust keyframes exactly where you need them, or record sequences to quickly create complex visuals.
Twist Camera Animation
Add a bit of drama with a subtle (or dramatic!) camera angle. KeyShot adds the ability to animate the Twist parameter of your camera.
Environment Rotation Animation
No matter if it’s a standard environment or your own custom HDRI, you can control how the environment light rotates and the speed that it moves across your product.
Light Manager & Gizmos
Light Manager lets you control all of your scene lighting from one location, while new Light Gizmos allow fast adjustment of IES Lights, Spotlights, and Point Lights in both Real-Time and Geometry view.
The new Smart Export feature utilises KeyShot’s UV Unwrapping and Baking capabilities to prepare assets for AR, Web, and full colour 3D printing.

Generic (BRDF) Material
Only generic in name, this material's flexibility is near limitless. Adjust sheen, clearcoat, metallic, anisotropic and more.
Keyshot is a standalone renderer, and does not run as a hosted plugin on a parent 3D modelling app. An investment in Keyshot can be very economical over time - especially if your 3D modelling workflow changes, or different team members or suppliers produce 3D work in different applications. In addition to being able to process almost any kind of 3D file, Luxion Keyshot comes with free plugins for:
