KeyShot 6 Upgrade
Pixologic is pleased to announce that in collaboration with Luxion, we will now be offering KeyShot 6 for ZBrush in two flavors: KeyShot 6 HD for ZBrush and KeyShot 6 Pro for ZBrush. This gives ZBrush artists even more options when rendering your models and scenes. If you are using KeyShot as a rapid visualization tool while sculpting in ZBrush then KeyShot 6 HD for ZBrush will continue to serve that role admirably. On the other hand, if you wish to output even more photo-real renders of your ZBrush models then KeyShot 6 Pro for ZBrush may be exactly what you’ve been dreaming of.
Either way, if you can create it in ZBrush, the ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge will allow you to render it in KeyShot! A single button press sends your ZBrush scene to KeyShot for stunning renders, with no need to first decimate the model. Size, position, MatCaps, NanoMesh, Array Mesh, Fibers… what you see in ZBrush will be exactly what you see in KeyShot. From there you can simply drag and drop to apply a variety of real-world materials to your model and place it in the ideal lighting environment for that perfect render.
KeyShot 6 for ZBrush is an incredible value!
KeyShot 6 HD for ZBrush is $200 USD vs. $995 for KeyShot 6 HD.
KeyShot 6 Pro for ZBrush is $400 USD vs. $1995 for KeyShot 6 Pro.
A COMPARISON CHART shows the differences between the two versions.
KeyShot 6 HD for ZBrush has all the same features as KeyShot 6 HD, including unlimited render resolution. KeyShot 6 Pro for ZBrush has all the same features as KeyShot 6 Pro, including animation. Both versions require use of the ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge. They do not have direct import capability and can only open KeyShot scenes created with one of the KeyShot 6 for ZBrush versions. These are the only feature restrictions.

If you purchased on May 1, 2015 or later, you can upgrade to KeyShot 6 HD for ZBrush for free. Your current serial number will work with KeyShot 6 for ZBrush. Alternatively, you can upgrade to KeyShot 6 Pro for ZBrush for $200 USD.
If you purchased before May 1, you can upgrade to KeyShot 6 HD for ZBrush for $80 USD. Alternatively, you can upgrade to KeyShot 6 Pro for ZBrush for $200 USD.
No matter which option you choose, please do not lose your current serial number. All purchased upgrades will provide you with a second serial number but it will not work without your original serial. Of course, if you bookmark the My Licenses page you can retrieve your serial number(s) at any time!
There is no need to upgrade the ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge. This will continue to function with any version of KeyShot 5 and above.
IF YOU ALREADY OWN A REGULAR KEYSHOT LICENSE (Not KeyShot for ZBrush):
Because it is aimed specifically at ZBrush artists, the KeyShot 6 for ZBrush versions are the ones that Pixologic offers. For all other versions, you will need to upgrade directly through Luxion.
IF YOU HAVE NOT YET PURCHASED A KEYSHOT LICENSE:
You may purchase Single-User and Volume licenses of KeyShot 6 HD for ZBrush at a price of $200 USD or Single-User licenses of KeyShot 6 Pro for ZBrush at a price of $400 USD. Both versions require the ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge. You may purchase these directly from Pixologic at our online store. Other versions are also available directly from Luxion, all of which also support the ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge.
