What Makes KeyShot Different?
See your results instantly. KeyShot is real-time rendering to the core. Not a mode. Not an afterthought. See everything as it
happens. Every change from material and lighting to cameras and animation is seen instantly as you work.
KeyShot 8.2 HD is the first rendering application that allows you to work in a fully ray traced environment from the beginning. Through the combination
of progressive global illumination, multi-core photon mapping, adaptive material sampling and a dynamic lighting core, KeyShot delivers an
interactive experience that results in photographic images instantly.
Every change you make – material, lighting, geometry – is instantly updated and allows you to evaluate the result within a few
switching back and forth between render modes, no endless waiting to see what the final rendering is going to look like. Just sit back and let
the final image resolve in front of your eyes.
Easy to Use
Focus on your design, not software.
KeyShot 8.2 HD is extremely easy to learn and use to achieve photographic results in minutes through a simple, workflow-based interface with all the
advanced capabilities for the most experienced 3D render professional.
With its interactive approach to rendering, KeyShot is extremely easy to learn and use. Anyone involved with 3D data can achieve photographic
results withing minutes of opening the application.
Despite the seemingly simple interface, KeyShot provides the depth of functionality to satisfy the needs of the most advanced user. And due to a
well designed and thought out user interface, even advanced tools are easy to learn and use.
KeyShot works on both Windows and Mac utilizing 100% of any available CPU power. No special graphics card is needed, and all CPU
power scales linearly for unmatched performance.
KeyShot 8.2 HD is powered completely by the CPU with no requirement for any type of special graphics card. With cross-platform support for both Windows
and Mac, KeyShot will work on nearly any desktop or laptop right out of the box.
KeyShot is one of the few applications to take 100% advantage of all physical and virtual cores in your computer and will scale linearly in
performance without ever tapering off when more cores are added.
KeyShot materials go beyond physical appearance providing scientifically accurate properties for the highest quality visuals. Use a
preset, an exclusive partner material or create your own.
KeyShot 8.2 HD materials are scientifically accurate. Rather than having materials that are "physically based" like many other rendering applications,
KeyShot materials reflect a physically accurate and easy to understand representation of materials and their properties.
Each material can be tweaked, colored and textured showing every changed in real-time to give you the perfect materials for your scene. You can
match measured materials using Cie-Lab colors and Gloss values or use digital representations from material providers such as Axalta Coating
Systems, Mold-Tech, and Sorensen leather.
For material color you can define your own using various color spaces, or use industry standard color libraries such as PANTONE and RAL.
Materials can be shared through KeyShot Cloud, allowing you to tap into one of the largest online resources for rendering assets.
Light it up right. KeyShot provides the speed to visualize products fast with advanced lighting capabilities that create the most
accurate lighting for simple studio shots or the most complex interior lighting.
KeyShot's real-time render engine contains the most advanced lighting algorithms, completely changing what is possible for visualizing interior
spaces. In the same way that KeyShot 8.2 HD changed the speed at which products can be rendered, this lighting algorithm provides the fastest, most
accurate method for rendering complex interior lighting.
Scenes containing hundreds of lights and illumination through small windows can be rendered interactively without compromising quality or
accuracy, and it all happens accurately in KeyShot without users having to adjust complex parameters such as the number of photons needed to
render a given scene.
Present your ideas sooner. KeyShot integrates throughout the entire product development process, with the widest 3D file format
support and LiveLinking technology for a fluid workflow from concept to final product.
KeyShot 8.2 HD is the only rendering application that is truly integrated throughout the entire development process. Through its unmatched import
pipeline, KeyShot imports nearly any file format.
Due to KeyShot's extensive partnership network, users of many CAD and 3D modeling application can transfer data directly from their application
into KeyShot while maintaining a link to their modeling session. Using KeyShot's unique LiveLinking technology any changes made to the model can
be transferred to the running KeyShot session and update the scene without any loss of work.
Whether you are using KeyShot during early concept presentations and design reviews or for final presentations, sales and marketing, or technical
documentation, KeyShot allows you to start the work as soon as you have 3D data, and by the time you have the final product, you'll be finished
creating the most amazing visuals possible.
