KeyShot is an entirely CPU based standalone 3D rendering and animation system for 3D data. It has been designed to take the complexity out of rendering realistic images. KeyShot is used by designers, engineers and CG professionals worldwide to quickly and easily create realistic images and animations of their 3D models.
Rather than playing with many parameters and waiting for the result, KeyShot allows you see results at the same time you make changes. Using all of your computers processor power, KeyShot delivers stunning images of your 3D data. The more processors you have, the faster KeyShot gets! And no matter whether you are on a PC or Mac, you never need a special graphics card, nor any dedicated drivers. It just works.
KeyShot doesn't require any specialized expertise. KeyShot has 6 main buttons rather than hundreds of parameters, options, sliders, and adjustments found in traditional rendering programs. It is the perfect tool for anyone who is or wants to get involved with 3D data: industrial designers, mechanical engineers, marketing professionals, photographers, CG experts – you name it. The only limit is your creativity.
KeyShot features the only rendering engine that is certified by the CIE (International Commission on Illumination). Using scientifically accurate materials and real world lighting, KeyShot delivers the most accurate images in a matter of seconds. And when you combine a 3D scene with a photograph, you can create even more amazing results that you may have never thought of before.
KeyShot supports many 3D CAD software packages natively. When importing your 3D data, KeyShot maintains the file structure from the original model to speed up rendering and animation. In addition, KeyShot can also be accessed directly from CREO, Pro/ENGINEER, Rhinoceros, SolidWorks and SketchUp with a plugin.
Keyshot + Creo
The plugin for Creo integrates nicely with the ribbon UI to give access to KeyShot with the click of a button. You have the ability to import your entire assembly, an individual part or a simplified representation of you assembly. The entire structure of your model is maintained, hidden parts and layers stay hidden and all colors are maintained, at the part level or assembly level, you decide. Best of all, your saved views can be transferred with the geometry if you like. The plugin is the fastest way to get your Creo geometry into KeyShot for the most realistic images you've ever created.
