How Easy is KeyShot?
KeyShot is the fastest and easiest to use 3D rendering and animation software available. In just a few steps you can create amazing looking images from your 3D models that can be used throughout the product development process to make design decisions and quickly create variations of concepts for customer, manufacturing or marketing.
You don’t have to be a rendering expert to create stunning images of your 3D models. Import you data into KeyShot, drag and drop materials, adjust the lighting, and move the camera. Done. Everything happens right in front of your eyes, all in realtime.
Step 1: Import your 3D model
With KeyShot open, import your BIP files, Alias WIRE, PTC Creo, Rhinoceros, SketchUp, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Pro/ENGINEER, IGES, STEP, OBJ, 3ds, Collada, and FBX data directly. KeyShot supports the most popular formats and has plugins for a few of them also.
Step 2: Paint your model
Use any of the 700+ scientifically accurate materials from the material library by simply copying and pasting them onto the model. You will instantly see what your design will look like, with the given material, color, and finish, under the current lighting conditions.
Step 3: Choose your lighting
Simply select an environment image (HDRI). As soon as you change the lighting environment you will notice the effect the real world lighting captured in those environments has on materials, colors and finishes.
Step 4: Adjust your camera
Framing your scene is just like using a real camera. You can change angle, distance and twist. You can control perspective with focal length and field of view settings and you can easily add depth of field to your scene.
Step 5: Adjust your background
Quickly and interactively cycle through colors, choose from pre-loaded photos, or set your own images as the background for your shot.
Step 6: Enjoy the perfect picture
You are done! From start to finish, a simple six step process to beautiful images, all happening in real-time – right in front of your eyes.
