KeyShot 9 Upgrades (Updated Oct. 10)
Posted by Matthew Yetter on 02 October 2019 09:11 AM
Luxion just announced that KeyShot 9 will be coming in the near future.  With that announcement they sent out an email that anyone who purchases or upgrades to KeyShot 8 starting October 1, 2019 will receive a free upgrade to KeyShot 9 when it releases.  That email stated that KeyShot for ZBrush would be excluded from the promotion.  This is incorrect. 

KeyShot for ZBrush will receive the same upgrade benefits.

We have also now received the pricing and upgrade schedules.  It is important to note that once KeyShot 9 releases, only KeyShot 7 and 8 will be able to upgrade to version 9.  At that point, anyone with KeyShot 6 will no longer be able to upgrade.  In other words, if you are a KeyShot 6 user, you have until the release of KeyShot 9 to upgrade your license to KeyShot 8.  Doing so will then give you KeyShot 9 as a free upgrade when it releases.  If you wait until the release of 9, the only way for a KeyShot 6 user to get 9 will be by purchasing a new license.  (KeyShot 5 and below have been unable to upgrade since the release of version 8.)

Please see our Knowledgebase article on KeyShot Upgrades for more information, including pricing.
