Keyshot advances 3D visualisation and speeds workflow
3D professionals around the world know Keyshot as the industry-leading, real-time renderer that gives them the advantage with its speed, ease, and quality.
Keyshot is different than most rendering software – it’s stand-alone, real-time, Cpubased and available for Mac and PC. Together, with Luxion’s real-time ray tracing technology as the backbone, Keyshot has proven to be the go-to renderer for high-quality results fast.
SIMPLE, YET ADVANCED
When you open Keyshot, you’ll be introduced to the most minimal user interface. Don’t worry though, it’s on purpose. The focus is meant to be on real-time results as every change you make in Keyshot - whether it’s a material, texture, environment update, lighting tweak or camera adjustment - can be seen the instant it’s made.
The user interface keeps the workflow simple, but underneath lies the advanced capabilities you would expect for creating previs concepts or production-level visuals.
Keyshot can import over 30 file formats but has plugins for the most popular 3D software. Keyshot has over 700 material presets, but allows you to create advanced, custom materials and textures through the Keyshot Material Graph. You can cycle through HDRI environments presets quickly, but have the ability to customise or create your own with the Keyshot HDRI Editor. You can take it even further by creating Model Sets and Studios in the same scene to explore model, colour and lighting variations. Render output can spit out a single image or give you 12 render passes and layers to help you fly through post-production.
A BETTER WORKFLOW
Since Keyshot is a stand-alone application it can sit right alongside your current process until you see where it speeds things up.
This might be in the early stages of creating concept models, identifying sooner how light works with particular shapes or how colours affect the appearance. It might be later on when you want to see an accurate material representation. Or, it might be when you have everything set and you need render passes of everything to complete final artwork.
For example, when you use Keyshot with Zbrush and the Keyshot to Zbrush Bridge, you can see your materials and lighting in Keyshot as you sculpt in Zbrush.
Luxion has been ramping up development efforts as well, previewing their upcoming VR tech at their Keyshot Renderworld conference and releasing a free Keyshot Viewer that can be used to view and interact with Keyshot scenes and product configurators.
