Hi all,

Will USD import and material X be supported in Keyshot?

USD files are supported in KeyShot 10.
They now use the Generic material when imported instead of Plastic. This means that they now also import texture maps for Metalic, Roughness, and Normals in addition to the diffuse map.

As for MaterialX, there are no plans to add this file format at this time.

I hope this helps. If you have any questions, please let us know.

Regards,

What about exporting? Do you need to have used Generic materials to be able to export or are other material types supported?
We rely on .axf files in our workflow, will they get 'baked' into the USD?

Hi Per,

Other materials besides Generic are supported on export and will be 'baked' into the USD.
