Event News: Luxion Unveils KeyShot 6 at PTC Live Global

Focused on the speed and simplicity of creating 3D visuals, KeyShot 6 introduces new capabilities and advanced features that allow designers, engineers, marketing specialists and 3D artists to expand the possibilities of the visuals the are able to create using their 3D data.


June 2015, Tustin, CA – Luxion, a leading developer of advanced rendering and lighting technology and maker of KeyShot®, is pleased to announce KeyShot 6, debuting at PTCLive Global 2015 in Nashville, Tennessee. The release of KeyShot 6 will be later this summer.

With KeyShot used in all areas of the product development cycle and across the fields of product design, engineering, manufacturing and
marketing, KeyShot has become the tool that professionals turn to for creating the highest quality photographic visuals. Luxion builds on this aspect, implementing features and enhancements into KeyShot 6 that expand what may be created and reduce the time to create them.

New KeyShot 6 Features

The highlighted features of KeyShot 6 include new lighting presets, real-time region rendering, and multi-layer PSD output to improve workflow efficiency, expanded material features with the new Material Graph, label materials and material animation, and new capabilities to create scripts, edit geometry and quickly shift camera verticals. Animation features now include path, DOF (depth of field) and panorama animations while KeyShotVR is now optimized for interior VRs and responsive website design.

What their Customers Are Saying

“As an avid KeyShot user since Version 2, I feel this is the next big step for this amazing rendering
program. The huge addition for me is the ‘Interior’ lighting mode. Even if you’re not planning on doing
architectural visualization, you’ll appreciate the interior optimization for those product shots where
lifelike daylight with graphic cast shadows produced from the surrounding environment is needed.” — Vitaly Bulgarov, Concept Designer

“For anyone who overlooked KeyShot thinking it’s only for quick visual renderings, they will want to look
again. With Keyshot 6, Luxion not only shows how fast rendering can be, they make a home at the top of
the list for best rendering solution.”  — Tim Feher,
