Workflow Performance Improvements

You can expect your workflow in scene setup, material application and rendering to flow much better. We’ve added the ability to pause offline rendering at any time and if you use interior mode, you’ll notice improved speed and performance. Along with this, we’ve made many, many updates and fixes to the KeyShot UI, making elements and actions more consistent and work how you expect them to.

More Network Rendering Options

By popular demand, KeyShot Network Rendering for Linux is here. Both Master and Slave can now be installed on Linux. We’ve also added a silent installation option for KeyShot Network Rendering on MacOS and have included many more Network Rendering improvements.

Increased Integration Capabilities

Perhaps the most input was provided from KeyShot users regarding KeyShot integration with 3D modeling software. It would be difficult to list all the updates made across the integration with various software. The top improvements include optimized and updated SOLIDWORKS integration (see more about this here), direct import of Autodesk Revit 2019 files, and support for Vertex Color and Deformable Curves included in Alembic output.
