KeyShot is a stand-alone, real-time ray tracing and global illumination program used to create 3D renderings, animations and interactive visuals.
With its CPU-based architecture, photorealistic real-time rendering can be achieved on both Mac and PC, even on laptops, without the need for high-end graphics cards.

KeyShot supports more 3D file formats than any other rendering software, importing over 25 different file types. It has a simple user interface with drag-n-drop material and environment presets, interactive labeling, texture mapping, physical lighting, animation and much more.

Fast

Everything inside KeyShot happens in real-time. KeyShot uses unique rendering technology which makes it possible to see all changes to materials, lighting, and cameras instantly.

Easy

You don’t have to be a rendering expert to create photorealistic images of your 3D models. Simply import your data, assign materials by dragging and dropping them onto the model.

Accurate

KeyShot is the most accurate rendering solution for your 3D data. KeyShot is built on Luxion’s internally developed, physically correct render engine based on research in the areas .


What's New

In selected pricing packages, OMNI3D offers
an open material system and the ability to print from from other producer’s materials.

Dimensional precision depends on the appropriate scaling of the model
before printing to compensate for material shrinkage, model geometry and the layer height.


Create the way you want right from the beginning. Use KeyShot Studios to set up different Camera, Environment, Model Set, and Multi-Material combinations in one scene, then present your model and material variations in the new KeyShot Configurator.

New options are available for many existing materials and new Cloudy Plastic and Measured materials are here. Textures now offer Tri-planar and Tiled UV mapping, while more control is added with new 2D Procedural Texture options.

With the new Environment list, HDR export and improved Ground, you have more control over your lighting. Take care of everything in one place with the integrated HDRI Editor full of new enhancements.

You have more flexibility in the KeyShot user interface with the ability to create your own Workspaces, reorder tabs, preview parts in the scene tree, and enjoy an improved experience on a 4k display.

You love KeyShot for the speed and KeyShot 7 brings you more. Introducing a completely new sampling method, re-tessellate, an adaptive performance mode and new output capabilities that has you producing visuals faster than ever before.
