Studio 16.1.2

This version of Studio supports Adobe CC2018 and macOS High Sierra (10.13). Support for Adobe CC015 has been dropped for this version.

KeyShot 7 is now supported. In addition, users can now specify the resolution of the textures when exporting to KeyShot, providing a higher quality result for large models and scenes.

"Export to Image Sequence" now offers an "Artwork Quality" setting, similar to "Export to TIFF". Users can choose the best quality setting for the type and resolution of movie they will create.

"Export to TIFF" now uses the Creative Cloud Working RGB profile for color management. Previously Studio used the monitor profile of the OS, which could cause different results when exporting the same file from different computers. This will provide consistent color output, regardless of the computer doing the export. However, there may be differences between the colors in the Illustrator document window and what is displayed in the Studio window.
