CMF to 3MF
CMF to 3MF export let’s you export a KeyShot scene containing CMF data to 3MF for 3D printing.
Learn more about 3MF export for 3D printing here.
Deformable Animation Import
The new deformable Animation import let’s you import deformable Animations as FBX or Alembic files. KeyShot will cache these animation as .luxT files for faster loading and smaller file sizes.
Learn more about Deformation Animation here.
Environment Brightness Animation
The new Brightness Animation is a new type of environment animation. You can add an environment brightness animation by right-clicking on your environment in the scene tree or by using the animation wizard.
