Studio What's new - Esko


Design packaging in 3D, in Adobe Illustrator.


What’s new in 23.03

Sample Material Presets

We’ve included several Material Preset examples to show how Studio’s basic material types can be tuned to simulate a wide variety of materials. Use or modify these to render hyper-realistic images for presentations and ecommerce.

More Material Types

Two new basic material types have been added to simulate even more real-world materials, including:

  • Cloudy Liquid: for simulating milk, orange juice, ketchup, or coffee
  • Materials from a texture: import an image to simulate natural materials like wood or molded fiber

Enhanced Image Export

When rendering a ray-traced image, you can now include realistic shadows with a transparent background to produce impactful images for presentations and ecommerce.

Studio’s Shapes Store has been moved to Esko Cloud and has a new look! 

  • Access the new Shapes Store in the same way as always
  • Faster access and downloads
