Keyshot 2024 - a new version of 3D rendering software

KeyShot is a popular real-time and ray-tracing renderer compatible with various 3D software for rendering, creating animations, and other pictures. It supports more 3D file formats than any other rendering software, with over 25 different file types. KeyShot is known for its user-friendly workflow, which allows professional artists to create photorealistic renders, texture mapping, and simple animation. Luxion recently released its latest update, Keyshot 2024, which includes many new improvements that allow users to focus on performance and workflow updates. This is extremely helpful to 3D artists, allowing them to render more quickly and easily. Let’s learn more in today’s iRender blog!

Overview of Keyshot

Essentially, Keyshot is a visual ray tracing renderer for visualization and portfolio work.

KeyShot is CPU and GPU independent with integrated plugins for many popular DCC and CAD applications. It has an intuitive workflow, intended to enable non-professional artists to create photorealistic renderings of 3D models and increase the capabilities of simple technical animation.

Keyshot 2024 improves image sharpness

KeyShot 2024 also provides sharper images when editing your projects, thanks to user interface updates that improve responsiveness. This new functionality allows you to edit directly during the rendering process. Keyshot 2024 adds a new feature called Image Sharpening. This function enables you to take images with outstanding detail. The Image Sharpening tool allows you to modify the intensity, making dark edges darker and bright edges brighter, as well as the Radius, which is the distance outside the sharpened edges that the effect is applied. Your sharper images will also be transferred to KeyShot Web Viewer.

Keyshot 2024 has better GPU rendering performance

The developer highlights that the GPU Mode in the new version of KeyShot uses NVIDIA’s OptiX 8, the latest version of the GPU ray tracing API. Based on internal testing, this increases performance by up to 25%, with a median render speed improvement in GPU Mode of “around 12%”. 

Keyshot also has a number of other small improvements, such as added support for Rhino 8, several CAD versions, and various bug fixes.

Keyshot Web: an incredibly popular add-on

KeyShot Web, which saves you time and is primarily focused on sharing your work outside of KeyShot for collaboration and marketing, has also received an update. For previous versions, the web viewer responded slowly and sometimes artists spent a lot of time waiting. The web viewer in KeyShot 2024 is now more responsive and performs better, as well as having the option to include a 3D scene to perform uploads.

Price and system requirements

KeyShot 2024.1 is available for Windows 10+ and macOS 11.7+. Integration plugins are available for a range of DCC and CAD tools, including 3ds Max, Blender, Cinema 4D, and Maya.
