Using KeyShot is remarkably straightforward. A real time preview window shows updates as and when you make them.
Start by importing the model and applying materials - there are over 700 scientifically accurate materials in the included library.
Next choose the lighting from a library of included HDR images and then frame your image just like you would with a real camera.
Finally, adjust the background and use either the real time preview image or create an off-line render at a chosen size.
Watch our video below to learn about new features in KeyShot 9 that will likely be of most interest to Rhino3d users, these are:
KeyShot features tools and the fastest workflow for creating still and animated visuals. Within a few minutes, apply scientifically accurate materials, work with textures and labels, adjust HDRI and physical lighting, move your camera for the perfect shot, create animation and interactive KeyShotVR’s and see it all happen in real-time.
KeyShotVR brings the advantage of interactive 3D-enabled viewing via desktop, laptop or mobile device to produce portfolios, presentations and collateral for design reviews. Product designers, marketers and KeyShot users who want to extend the presentation of their visuals are able to create the high-quality, ray-traced 3D content directly from inside KeyShot.
Place your mouse over the image. Click the left mouse button to rotate and right mouse button (or scroll) to zoom.
With over 20 supported 3D file formats, KeyShot imports the largest number of file types of any 3D rendering software. Along with being able to handle large data sets and different file types, KeyShot provides options to make sure your data is imported accurately and ready to apply materials. With plugins for 3ds Max, PTC Creo, Pro/ENGINEER, Rhinoceros, SolidWorks and SketchUp, import capabilities are extended even further.
