With the latest release of KeyShot comes some new and exciting additions to the way in which we create our scenes and ultimately our renders. These latest features have been added in the hope to speed up the rendering process and help realize your ideas faster.
KeyShot 9 will help numerous industries from Marketing to the Automotive industry.
Top New Features…
Denoise allows users to create their vision up to 30x faster with the click of a button. Working both in CPU and GPU mode this feature aims to eliminate noise in the Real-Time View and render output.
GPU ray tracing in KeyShot 9 means you are now able to take advantage of NVIDIA RTX GPUs to render in the Real-Time View and for local render output. The main benefit of GPU support is for local performance scaling. Unlike CPUs, it is relatively easy to add a 2nd or 3rd GPU to your machine to gain performance. GPU ray tracing in KeyShot 9 supports the NVIDIA Maxwell microarchitecture found in GTX 980 and above.
3D Model Library
KeyShot 9 brings you a new Model Library filled with the highest-quality, specially curated 3D models to complement the products in your scene. All 3D models come complete with materials and textures, and are easily searched, filtered, and added to any scene with a simple drag-and-drop from KeyShot Cloud.
RealCloth is a patent-pending technology from Luxion driving a powerful, new material type which allows the creation and visualization of realistic woven materials. The material type provides control of the weave pattern (Pro) and ability to easily add flyaway fibres. New RealCloth materials have been added to the Library as well.
Fuzz Geometry Shader
A new material geometry shader that brings a whole new level of realism to your products. Just open up the KeyShot Material Graph (Pro) and add any amount of fuzz you need on the surface of any material. Control length, randomness, density and more for that perfectly, fuzzy look.
Other New Features…
Contour allows you apply an edge on any material. With contour as a texture, you now have more control and flexibility while creating custom materials. You can use it to add an illustration-like effect on top of real-world materials such as metal or plastic.
Animation Curve Control
Adding a new aspect to your animation with curve control. With the ability to customize the motion or appearance of an animation or a material color, bump, opacity or other property. Add controls quickly along the curve and adjust it all in real-time to create incredible part and material animations.

KeyShot 9 introduces the power to generate interactive, browser-based product configurators. Featuring fully rendered product variations using the models, materials, and Studios of your choice, web configurators can be produced to share privately or hosted online to provide a more engaging product option experience. Perfect for a marketing standpoint, as well as prototyping.
