The KeyShot 2019 Holiday Render Competition Overview
Greetings and Happy Holidays!! For the month of December, we're hosting the KeyShot 2019 Holiday Render Competition! This is your opportunity to create an amazing KeyShot scene using the all-new features in KeyShot 9. What are these exciting, new features worthy of having their own contest? We're glad to pretend you asked! KeyShot 9 features include:

          RealCloth that brings you creation and visualization of realistic woven materials.

          Fuzz that allows you to add any amount of fuzz or fur (or tinsel!) you need to the surface of any object.

          Contour Texture that lets you add an illustration-like effect on top of real-world materials such as metal or plastic.

          3D Model Library that provides high-quality, specially curated 3D models to complement the products in your scene.

And there's more! Like the new Web Configurator, Animation Curve Control, Substance Painter Import, and VStitcher Integration along with all the great KeyShot features you know and love, PLUS the new GPU support and Denoise to render it all out.

Would it be in this same link?



Hello, can i choose other holiday from my country?


Yes, indeed. This is why it is a general 'holiday' contest :)
