With the KeyShot 10.1 update, Luxion has introduced a swathe of new features quick off the back of the very recent launch of Keyshot 10.
Consolidated light management, advanced keyframe and environment animation capabilities, the all-new Smart Export for a wide variety of 3D output options, and a completely redesigned Move Tool for improved accessibility and placement are all packed into the ‘dot-one’ release.
KeyShot 10.1 additions look to complement both feature and workflow with Collision Detection and Part Settling, Smart Export to multiple AR formats at once, USD Import, and multi-selection for both Light Manager and Keyframe Animation.
Along with these updates, Luxion has launched KeyShot Portal with new trial licensing, which should give users improved management of KeyShot licenses.
New Keyshot 10.1 features include:
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.
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.
It 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
The ability to select multiple keyframes at once from within the Animation Timeline has been introduced, 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, a new platform that allows users 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.
