Let's take a look at what's included! The Essential Keyshot Materials pack includes so much more than just shaders. We've also included the shaderdisc and shaderballs created to showcase each of the stunning materials in this pack, the Keyshot scene files used to create the renders, as well as instructional videos on how to get the most out of your materials.
There are 50 high quality materials included in Essential Keyshot Materials, with over 130 different variations! This includes plastics, metals, rubbers, fabrics and leathers, all of which have been created referencing real-world materials most commonly used across industrial design. With knowledge of how to use the material graph, each material is completely customisable - and we highly encourage you to do so!
Also included with Essential Keyshot Materials is the 10cm shaderball, 15cm shaderdisc, 30cm shaderball and fabric stack designed by Shaun Wellens. Each object has been designed with material creation in mind, with features such as varying wall thickness and multiple radii values, to aid in building a wide variety of materials. You’re welcome to use them, as Shaun has done, to build your own materials (or to customise the materials in this pack!)
You’ll also be provided with the Keyshot scenes used to create the display renders of the Essential Keyshot Materials. This will include the 3D models, backdrops, Keyshot settings and lighting setups, providing you with an insight into how Shaun approaches this kind of work on a daily basis.
The Essential Keyshot Materials pack has been created with simplicity and ease-of-use in mind, but with quality comes a certain amount of complexity. The vast majority of the materials in this pack will work with simple drag-and-drop functionality, but there are some materials that have very distinct patterns and properties that will require an additional amount of setup and tweaking. For these materials, instructional videos with Shaun, along with a general overview and introduction, have also been included. We highly recommend watching them to get the most out of Essential Keyshot Materials!

It can be notoriously difficult to create materials that behave correctly across multiple lighting setups. That's why we've taken the time to painstakingly calibrate and fine-tune Essential Keyshot Materials to work across a wide range of lighting possibilities - so you don't have to!
Improve your Keyshot renders.
Created with designers in mind, Essential Keyshot Materials prioritises the kinds of materials you may need to use on a daily basis, including speckled and translucent plastics, spun and extruded metals, leathers and fabrics commonly used in consumer electronics, and much more.
