    Default KeyShot 7 for ZBrush has been Released

    Pixologic and Luxion are pleased to announce the release of KeyShot 7 for ZBrush. Artists already using the ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge know just how easy it is to send your work to KeyShot to get photorealistic renders in no time. KeyShot 7 provides more lighting controls, a more flexible UI, more materials and a variety of other new features.

    The ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge does not need to be upgraded in order to support KeyShot 7.

    Free Upgrades:
    Anyone who purchased or upgraded to KeyShot 6 on or after November 25, 2016 is eligible for a free upgrade to the same version of KeyShot 7. If you have KeyShot 6 HD you receive a free upgrade to KeyShot 7 HD. If you have KeyShot 6 Pro you receive a free upgrade to KeyShot 7 Pro. In both cases, your serial number for KeyShot 6 will also work with KeyShot 7. Download Now

    If you wish to go from KeyShot 6 HD to KeyShot 7 Pro, you will need to purchase an upgrade as explained below.

    Paid Upgrades:
    Anyone who does not qualify for a free upgrade can purchase an upgrade through the My Licenses page on Pixologic.com. When you log in, it will show your available upgrade options.

    The upgrade prices are as follows:
    KeyShot 6 HD to KeyShot 7 HD: $80 USD
    KeyShot 6 HD to KeyShot 7 Pro: $200 USD
    KeyShot 6 Pro to KeyShot 7 Pro: $160 USD
    KeyShot 7 HD to KeyShot 7 Pro: $200 USD

    All support for KeyShot is provided by Luxion. Pixologic can only extend support as far as purchasing the upgrade.

    Happy ZBrushing!

    Awesome. What is the difference between the PRO and the HD versions? I don't really see a difference besides the price. Maybe I'm not seeing the right info.

    See https://www.keyshot.com/product-comparison/ for a chart of differences.
