What’s new in Keyshot?

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.

Keyframe Animation Enhancements
KeyShot 10.1 introduces the ability to select multiple keyframes at once from within the Animation Timeline, using Ctrl (Windows)/command (Mac). Additionally, multiple keyframes may be copied and pasted along the same node using Ctrl-C + Ctrl-V (Windows)/command-C + command-V (Mac) or pasted as mirrored. Lastly, Custom Easing Curves may now also be edited for multiple animations at once.

KeyShot Portal
KeyShot Portal is a new platform that allows you to access and manage their KeyShot trial licenses, streamlines license management for Luxion sales, support and licensing, and lays the groundwork for subscription product license options in the future.

  • A tag replacement-based export rename feature allows you to specify a file pattern with tags, which are replaced per export, along with custom text.
  • Hot Folders, which will auto-import images added to a specified folder and export them as well, if the Hot Folder is running.
  • PSD/PSB export allows you to export each layer of your composite into a single PSD/PSB file and continue with it in Photoshop.
  • HitFilm Composite Shot export lets you quickly and easily take your composite and continue with it in HitFilm, including each layer with its position, scale, and rotations.
  • A new Magnify effect allows you to magnify areas on your image and controls to distort and bulge the magnification.
  • A new Leave Color effect lets you easily pick a color to retain while turning everything else black and white.
