What’s new in KeyShot 10?
KeyShot 10 opens up worlds unimagined, accelerating the visual creation process to fuel the next generation of visualization. KeyShot 10 gives you the ability to take product experiences to new heights, with more ways to animate your ideas, experience your creations, and supercharge your workflow to deliver visuals that captivate.
Animate Your Ideas.
KeyShot 10 brings you more motion for every idea with increased control to create more advanced visuals and industry-leading ease of use to keep you moving.
Control your motion, not your excitement.
The new Keyframe animation brings a new level of control over your animation timeline with the ability to add and adjust keyframes exactly where you need them or record sequences of keyframes to create complex visuals fast.
Sun & Sky Day Arc Animation
From sunrise to sunset.
KeyShot 10 Sun & Sky Day Arch Animation puts the daylight in your hands. With the ability to adjust date, start, and end time directly or apply keyframes for finer control, animating daylight for your scene has never been easier.
Environment Rotation Animation
The world revolves around your product.
You also have complete control of how fast it revolves. Whether it’s one of KeyShot’s many environments or your own custom HDRI, add a new Environment Rotation Animation to control how the environment light moves across your product.
Twist Camera Animation
Ooh, yeah, just like this.
Your product animation needs a little drama every once in a while. KeyShot 10 adds the ability to animate the Twist parameter of your camera for as subtle or dramatic of an effect as you like with control over angle and time.
Experience Your Creations.
You now have more ways to experience your visuals with the new Smart Export that utilizes KeyShot’s UV Unwrapping and Baking capabilities to prepare assets for AR, Web, and full-color 3D print workflows.
Smart Export – 3MF
From KeyShot to full-color 3D Print.
When you need the most accurate physical prototype, you start with the most accurate digital prototype. With full color, texture, and transparent material support, going from digital to physical happens faster than ever.
Smart Export – GLB/glTF
3D visuals for the modern web.
Beautiful scene interaction, fast loading models, and the widest industry support. The open standard for web visuals right from KeyShot. Visit this page on your mobile device to view the 3D model.
Smart Export – USDZ
Mobile-ready AR straight out of KeyShot.
When you need the transfer of rich 3D assets or an interactive, mobile viewing experience. KeyShot provides export of USD, USDA, USDC, and USDZ which is perfect for AR export to applications that support Apple’s ARKit. Visit this page on your mobile device to view the 3D model. (iOS 12 and above.)
Supercharge Your Workflow.
The right tool, for the right job. Open up KeyShot 10 and you’ll find new and improved tools to manage lighting and move ideas faster than ever before.
The new Light Manager in KeyShot 10 allows you to control all scene lighting from one location. The dockable panel allows you to choose and adjust your environment lighting or control the visibility, color, power, and size of any physical light.
Grab hold of the light.
When you want to explore lighting or make a quick adjustment on the fly, the new Light Gizmos in KeyShot 10 make it possible. From the Real-time View or Geometry View, simply select a Spotlight, IES Light, or Point Light to adjust a variety of ways.
You like to move it, move the Move Tool.
You never thought such a simple change could be so helpful. The KeyShot Move Tool has been completely redesigned to improve accessibility and allow you to place and dock it in the Real-time View or beyond.
When your parts need some alone time.
Select, activate Solo Mode. This new feature speeds current workflows allowing you to isolate and work on one or more parts without the need to lock parts or disrupt the hierarchy of any other hidden parts.
Deliver Visuals That Captivate.
There’s photo-real and then there’s KeyShot. New updates to KeyShot exclusive material capabilities bring a level of realism that turns heads.
Another dimension of cloth, fiber, and yarn.
RealCloth introduced a level of realism not yet seen. RealCloth 2.0 takes it to the next level. The improvements include 3D Ply for yarn-like geometry and increased fiber-level detail for the most realistic representation of individual threading ever.
Make your light rays drop jaws faster.
Caustics in KeyShot have always been beautiful and extremely accurate. Now in KeyShot 10, they converge even faster for both CPU and GPU with less dependence on the size of your scene to deliver jaw-dropping results in less time.
Multiple Surface Scattering
Bounce with me.
Control multiple bounces of light on rough dielectric surfaces, before it is 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.
Shoo, firefly, don’t bother this scene.
Image Styles in KeyShot 10 hold a special treat for those who push lighting in their scene. Denoise now includes a Firefly Filter slider to quickly remove and smooth away specks of unwanted light from your scene.
From smooth operator to smooth illuminator, new updates to KeyShot Denoise introduce albedo and normal information for consistent results between the Real-time View and your render output along with improved results with Interior Mode.
Improved Toon Material
Just look at those rich, thick contour lines. The popular KeyShot Toon material now provides finer control of outline behavior to be more consistent with line art illustration techniques.
