KeyShot 7 Plugin for Maya (Windows)

KeyShot 7 Plugin for Maya (Windows)

Win64, English

Luxion, Inc
A plugin for integration between Autodesk® Maya® and KeyShot 3D rendering and animation software.

General Usage Instructions


  • Send scene to KeyShot
  • Send changes to KeyShot
  • Export scene to file

KeyShot integration settings:

Animation options:

  • Either export a specific frame, the current frame selected or Export to KeyShot Animation (default).
  • Note: KeyShot only supports rigid transforms, so exporting a specific frame is well suited to deformable meshes etc.

Curve options:

  • Set the radius modifier and toggle KeyShot's curve smoothing option.

NURBS options:

  • Toggle which NURBS data to transfer to KeyShot.
  • Note: Not transferring the tessellation data can provide a speedup for NURBS heavy scenes, but does require NURBS rendering in KeyShot




Run the installer for your platform and follow the instructions.
The plugin and shelf is automatically installed, but it is necessary to verify that the correct version of the plugin is loaded when Maya is started.
When you start Maya again check via Menu > Window > Settings/Preferences > Plug-in Manager. By selecting "AutoLoad" the plugin will load whenever you start Maya.

Run the script in the /Users/Shared/Autodesk/ApplicationAddins/KeyShotPlugin/Contents/scripts/ folder with admin privileges.
