A few weeks ago, we gave you a sneak peek at new updates coming to KeyShot 4.2. Today, we’re happy to make the new version available and announce quite a few more new features and updates. We’re excited for two reason about this release. It completes the features planned for KeyShot 4 and it sets in motion the development of the next version of KeyShot, KeyShot 5.0. We’re focused on continuing to bring features to the visual creation process while keeping KeyShot the fastest, easiest way to make those visuals happen. Integration with your favorite 3D software continues to be a priority along with user interface enhancements and updates to the existing tools to make rendering, animating and creating interactive visuals with KeyShot the most enjoyable part of the process. We think you’ll like these updates as well and look foreward to hearing what you would like to see next.
