What Makes KeyShot Different?

KeyShot is designed to make 3D rendering and animation easy. It lets you apply materials and lighting fast and provides the most accurate materials appearances and real-world lighting, all in a powerful interface that provides advanced capabilities and the ability to see all your changes in real time.

KeyShot 11

Erstaunliches Rendering und Animation. In Echtzeit.



Focus on your design, not software. KeyShot is extremely easy to learn and use to achieve photographic results in minutes through a simple, workflow-based interface with all the advanced capabilities for the most experienced 3D render professional.


Present your ideas sooner. KeyShot brings visual speed and agility to the entire product development process, with the widest 3D file format support for a fluid workflow from concept to final product.


Make it more realistic. KeyShot materials go beyond physical appearance by providing scientifically accurate properties for the highest quality visuals. Use a preset, an exclusive partner material, or create your own.


Access complete computing power. KeyShot gives you the power and the choice to utilize either CPU or NVIDIA GPUs for rendering and the capability to scale linearly for an unmatched performance.


Light it up right. KeyShot provides advanced lighting capabilities that create the most accurate lighting for simple studio shots or for the most complex interior lighting.


See your results instantly. KeyShot is real-time rendering to the core. Not a mode. Not an afterthought. See everything as it happens. Every change from material and lighting to cameras and animation is seen instantly as you work.



Simplify your workflow.

KeyShot is a stand-alone 3D rendering and animation application that operates side by side with your 3D modeling application. Rather than putting KeyShot inside the 3D modeling software, we provide a more flexible approach with three levels of integration to import and render your design.

Direct import:
  • KeyShot supports the widest number of 3D file formats out of any rendering software. With importers for over 20+ file types and versions, you can be sure your 3D data will be imported accurately into KeyShot. Direct import of the major 3D CAD applications and the generic 3D file formats is included with .obj export available in KeyShot Pro.
  • Our plugins extend the functionality between KeyShot and the 3D modeling application. Depending on the application, this higher level of integration makes it possible for the entire geometry along with its structure, color assignments, and camera views to be imported and for KeyShot files to be exported without KeyShot being installed.
  • The plugins also allow our LiveLinking technology to establish a link between your 3D modeling software and KeyShot. This keeps the software separate, allowing you to continue working and refining your model and then sends all changes over to KeyShot with the click of a button. All without losing any views, materials, textures or animations already applied. 
Third-party support
  • Beyond direct import, plugins and LiveLinking, many of our partners have taken the steps to build KeyShot integration into their software, extending the functionality within the 3D modeling application. Once the 3D modeling application is installed, users may immediately export their files to KeyShot without the need to install a plugin. Users can apply materials, continue modeling and making updates to the geometry with all changes brought over to KeyShot to continue the rendering process.

KeyShot Plugins

Your models, in KeyShot, even faster. There are two ways to import your 3D models into KeyShot–direct import or through a plugin. You don’t need a plugin to import your native 3D data. However, the plugins below transfer data faster and deliver tighter integration between KeyShot and your 3D modeling software making your workflow even faster.

  • A KeyShot plugin links the 3D modeling software and KeyShot together, rather than putting KeyShot inside the modeling application. Plugins add a menu button to your 3D software that transfers 3D data and other model information into KeyShot. Plugins are developed by Luxion or by our partners who will distribute and support them.
Direct import
  • KeyShot directly imports over 40 different 3D file formats from 20+ 3D modeling applications with no plugin required. From the File menu, select Open… or Import… to bring up unique options for the 3D data you need to import. Direct import of all major 3D modeling applications as well as generic 3D file formats is included in KeyShot HD, Pro, and Enterprise.
  • Luxion’s LiveLinking technology takes the KeyShot plugin to the next level. With LiveLinking, your modeling application and KeyShot are connected (via the plugin). With it, you can continue to work in the 3D modeling application after the initial transfer to KeyShot. At any point in time you can update your designs in KeyShot with the simple push of a button. Only the changed parts and layers will be transferred to KeyShot, without the loss of any materials, animations, lighting or camera setup. Simply put, everything will be maintained. Do this today, tomorrow, or next week. All you do is open your model in the 3D modeling software and the scene in KeyShot – and you are linked!
