New in KeyShot 10.1
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.
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.
Introduced in KeyShot 10
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 10 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.
Denoise now includes a Firefly Filter to quickly smooth or remove unwanted specks of light in your scene.
If you were impressed by RealCloth before, this updated version will take your designs even further with improvements including 3D Ply for yarn-like geometry, and increased fibre detail for the most realistic representation of individual threading.

- Network Rendering Speed Improvement
- Flip Normals
- Name Template Updates
- Improved Caustics
- Improved Move Tool
- Sub-Material Save

Render with Multiple GPUs
Available for both real-time rendering and local render output, the new GPU Mode allows GPU resources to be accessed with one click. Harness the GPU-accelerated ray-tracing power of NVIDIA RTX with OptiX.
Realistic Woven Materials
RealCloth Pro technology by Luxion is a new material type which lets you create and visualise realistic woven materials, including control over the weave and flyaway fibers.
With the Contour texture, you now have control and flexibility while creating custom materials. Add an illustration-like effect, or use it on top of real world materials like metals and plastics.
The new material geometry shader, fuzz, brings a whole new level of realism to your products. Add any amount of fuzz on the surface of a meterial in the Material Graph (Pro), and you can control the length, density and randomness for the perfect look.
Interactive Web and Mobile Content
Introducing the power to generate interactive browser-based product configurators. Create fully-rendered product variations using the models, materials and studios of your choice.
Working with both CPU and GPU Mode to eliminate noise, the denoiser creates smooth, fast and beautiful renderings in the real-time view and final render output.
Specially Curated Library
A new library filled with high quality 3D models to complement your scene, that are complete with textures and materials. Easily searched, filtered and added to any scene as a simple drag and drop.
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:
Animation Curve Control
Customise the motion or appearance of an animation, or a material colour.
Import a KeyShot package into an open scene with only the models, cameras, and environments you want.
Substance Painter Import
Make textures pop by automatically generating KeyShot materials from the texture sets you create in Substance Painter.
Browzwear VSticher Plugin
A new plugin for VStitcher, a leading clothing design software package.
X-Rite AxF 1.6
The industry standard appearance exchange format (AxF) from X-Rite is packed with even more power and fully supported in KeyShot. The flexible file format now displays accurate appearance attributes for translucent and cloudy plastic-like materials.
