What's new in Keyshot 11.2?

KeyShot is a standalone 3D animation and rendering application used by independent 3D designers and artists worldwide. It is suitable for many industries including industrial design, marketing, engineering, entertainment, automotive, architecture, jewelry and packaging.

A few months ago, Luxion released KeyShot 11 with a bunch of updates, numerous new features, and dozens of enhancements. KeyShot 11 introduces 3D Paint, CMF Output, Physics Simulation, and the new KeyShot Web Viewer. With unremitting efforts, on March 21, Luxion continued to release version 11.1, the latest version with improvements to the new features of Keyshot 11, along with new support for 3D file format import/export, and new plugin options. On the publisher’s nonstop journey, in Jun, Keyshot version 11.2 was officially launched on the market.

Keyshot Integration

Instead of placing KeyShot inside 3D modeling software, it provides a more flexible approach with three levels of integration for importing and rendering your designs: plugin, direct import, and LiveLinking.

KeyShot directly imports over 40 different 3D file formats on both Mac and PC. KeyShot 11.2 is a pivotal release that introduces the eagerly anticipated ability to run KeyShot on the latest generation of Macs with Apple silicon chips (including M2 and M1 Pro/Max/Ultra). If you have a newer Mac with Apple silicon, you will experience a 15-30% performance gain in both rendering and overall usability.

The plugins extends the functionality between KeyShot and the 3D modeling application. The plugins developed by Luxion include 3DS Max, Maya, Revit, SketchUp, Rhino, Cinema 4D, NX, PTC Creo, Onshape, SOLIDWORKS, Fusion 360, Substance Painter, VStitcher.

Third party plugins developed by Luxion’s partners include 3D Systems, Alibre Design, Deadline, Esko Studio, IronCAD, JewelCAD Pro, MegaCAD, Solid Edge, solidThinking, Spaceclaim, ZBrush, ZW3D.

The plugins also allow Luxion’s LiveLinking technology to establish a link between your 3D modeling software and KeyShot which enables fast data transfer and continuous model updates.

Keyshot Web Viewer Update

Along with the release of KeyShot 11.2, the publisher has brought a substantial update to KeyShot Web Viewer (available with a KeyShotWeb subscription). KeyShot Web Viewer now provides added Studio support, allowing you to switch between Environments and Cameras, improved transparent materials with support for absorption, reflections, and refractions, a new bloom effect, two-finger swiping to pan the camera, and improved material accuracy when baking (in some cases).

Other new features and improvements include:

  • New Pantone 2022 colors – including the Pantone Color of the Year (Very Peri) added to the KeyShot Color Library.
  • Keyframe animation updates – adjust keyframes without interfering with the rendering in the Real-time View
  • Mesh Simplification updates – retain Normals and UVs after Mesh Simplification
  • 3D Paint updates – improved quality when changing 3D Paint texture resolution.  
  • Workflow automation updates – including support for scripting material information data, the ability to use scripting to render CMF documents, as well as detection of headless and GUI-only features.
  • Real-time View updates – including improved performance when dragging and dropping materials onto objects in the Real-time View
  • Import/Export updates – including support of binary data in glTF, native Onshape import and new SketchUp and Cinema 4D plugins with Apple silicon support (requires 11.2)
  • Plus over 75 bug fixes
