Tustin, California, September 12th, 2017 – Luxion, a leading developer of advanced rendering and lighting technology and maker of KeyShot®, the first real-time ray-tracing and global illumination program for 3D rendering and animation, in cooperation with Aversis, 3D visualization service, and Poliigon, photorealistic texture developer, today announced the release of new resources to bring additional content to KeyShot users with the new release of KeyShot 7.
KeyShot 7, released August 2017, continues to focus on speed and superior 3D rendering results. This release provides more ways to create and improve workflow capabilities through an optimized user interface and a completely updated resource library. The updates to the KeyShot resource library take advantage of the latest KeyShot material, texture and environment capabilities. Included with the new resources is the addition of new HDRI environments from Aversis and new photorealistic textures from Poliigon. For environments, Aversis has provided 10 3k HDRI environments with an additional 10 6k HDRI environments available with the KeyShot 7 Content Pack. In the same content pack, Poliigon has provided over 150 3k textures for bricks, concrete, fabric, wood flooring and more.
How It Works
Inside KeyShot, the new Aversis HDRIs and Poliigon textures can be viewed in the KeyShot Library window. From the Environment tab, drag-and-drop an HDRI to apply it to the scene. From the Texture tab, drag-and-drop a texture onto a part or take it further using the KeyShot Material Graph. All changes are seen immediately in real time. Additionally, KeyShot 7 Pro users may use the new Studio capabilities to set up different environments, camera and model combinations within each scene to quickly explore different lighting conditions or use the new Multi-Material feature to quickly cycle through different material and texture combinations. For more information on the updates for each resource type, please see the KeyShot 7 Manual.
All Aversis HDRI environments are included with the full installation of KeyShot 7. The KeyShot 7 Resource Installer provides additional higher resolution HDRI environments along with all Poliigon textures.
