Keyshot Features - Overview

For more details on the features, also refer to technical specification and what's new in KeyShot 5.

64-bit Architecture

KeyShot is built on 64-bit architecture giving you the power and ability to utilize more than 4 GB of both virtual and physical memory with any modern 64-bit system. KeyShot is cross-platform compatibly and can be used on both Microsoft Windows and Apple computers.

CPU-Powered

KeyShot is 100% CPU-Powered.  You won’t need any special hardware or graphics card. KeyShot takes full advantage of all cores and threads inside a computer. As your computer gets more powerful, KeyShot becomes faster. The performance scales linearly with the number of cores and threads in your system.

Interactive Labeling

Labels are designed for easy placement of logos, stickers or images that need to be placed freely onto a 3D model. Common image formats are supported such as jpg, tiff, tga, and png. Multiple labels can be added to a material and each label has its own mapping type. Images with transparency are supported as well.

Bump-mapping

Bump maps are images used to create fine details in materials that would be unrealistic to build into the model. Brushed metals and textured plastics are easily created using bump maps. Any common format color or grayscale image can be used as a bump map. With these images the bright and dark areas are interpreted as high and low spots on the surface.

Render Queue

The render queue is used to batch process image and animation rendering. You can simply add an image or animation “job” to the queue from various files throughout the day, then click the “process queue” button to start the queue rendering. Each job records the state of the scene and all render settings. The system can be left for the night to process the jobs.

Network Rendering

The network rendering system allows you to take advantage of multiple systems for rendering images and animations. After the simple installation process, any user with KeyShot can send a “job” to be rendered on the network. The jobs are organized into a queue that all users can view. Jobs can also be sent from the internal KeyShot queue to network rendering.

Live Linking

Live linking allows seamless model updates between the modeling software and KeyShot, without having to reassign materials, set up animations again, or update settings. Transfer your design from PTC Creo, SolidWorks, or Rhino to KeyShot. Assign materials and animations, continue modeling and push over changes to KeyShot. Changed parts will be replace and updated with the new parts and all materials and animations will be maintained.

Import Options

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.
