We just finished a preview of the new translucent material which will be included in the upcoming 2.1 release.  You can find the video on our YouTube channel as well as the Luxion KeyShot Facebook page.  Enjoy!

Translucent material, AKA "sub-surface scattering", and on another post "Bloom".  Wow, I can hardly wait 'till September is over!  You guys rock!

While watching the youtube video, I also looked again at the KS2 preview video, and noticed the round "color picker" on the materials tab, about 30% into the video.  My KS2 Pro has the typical square with little square color boxes, and in an odd color format.  Not like on KS1.9.  What happened to the very useful round picker?

Superb!
Setting this stuff up in any other program is so much hassle
you end up having to do it all in comp.

Just need to do hair and cloth and it's mostly all sorted.
Amazing... Be cool to be able to map the roughness though.

Hi Brian,

can you also add a download link in this forum?
Youtube and Facebook gets blocked by our company firewall.  :(

This is a great news and really cool update! Myself being a character artist, I can;t wait to play around with it.
One quick question, does the diffuse and translucent nodes can have textures attached to them? Or does it just have color value?
Also any rough est when is keyshot 2.1 going to be available? I am going to start a production pretty soon and need to decide which engine to go with, as I do love the quality that can be achieved with Keyshot.
Thanks  :)

You can attach texture and bump maps to the material. We are trying hard to get 2.1 out this month.
