New Materials: More Accurate Renderings Backed by Scientific Data

New advanced material renderings in KeyShot 7 take scientific data into consideration to create incredibly realistic renderings.

  • Texture mapping: Apply textures faster and with more accuracy using the new interactive texture mapping tool.
  • Material templates: New templates have been added and current templates have been updated for speed and ease of use.
