by | Mar 23, 2022 | 0 comments

With KeyShot 11, we have introduced annual subscription pricing, consolidating our product offerings to make purchase and management of license easier. Today, we’ll take a quick look at how you can get set up using your KeyShot Pro subscription license.

Managing a KeyShot Subscription

The subscription pricing for KeyShot Pro deals with more than just pricing. KeyShot subscription licensing is the conduit that makes it possible to deliver features and updates regularly while allowing you better access and more options for managing your licenses. With this, we want to share the process of getting set up on a KeyShot Pro subscription and where you go to manage your license.


If you already have a KeyShot Pro subscription, skip to the next section for details on download, installation, and how to manage your subscription license.

Purchasing a KeyShot Pro Subscription

To get started, visit Next, add a KeyShot Pro Subscription to your cart. Available subscription add-on modules include KeyShotWeb (to create and share interactive 3D content), KeyShot Network Rendering (to utilize the power of your own computer network), and NX for KeyShot (that provides direct integration and LiveLinking with Siemens NX).

ℹ️Note: the bold price is the monthly breakdown of the subscription cost which is billed annually.

Once you’ve added your subscription to the cart, open your cart at the top right of the page, then read and agree to the terms and conditions before proceeding to checkout. When you click the checkout button, you’ll be redirected to your KeyShot Cloud account login. If you already have a KeyShot Portal account or KeyShot Cloud account, you can go ahead and login here. If you do not, you’ll need to create a new account through the Sign up link below the Sign in button.

⚠️Important: Your email login is the key to your subscription license so, to ensure access to purchase history and ease license management, be sure to use the same login for all KeyShot subscription purchases.

Once you’ve completed the checkout process and your payment has been submitted, you’ll receive an email that lists your purchased products with your subscription code, links to your order and invoice, as well as downloads for KeyShot Pro.

KeyShot Pro Subscription Download and Installation

Download KeyShot Pro via the link in the email or by visiting Install KeyShot Pro, stepping through the installation prompts and entering the subscription activation code from the email.

  1. Select I have a subscription option at the top of the listed license types, then hit Next.
  2. Sign into your KeyShot Cloud account (using the same login used for your purchase).
  3. Enter the subscription activation code and hit Next.

At this point, your subscription license is activated and you’re ready to jump into KeyShot to start creating incredible renderings and animations for your future projects.

Managing Your KeyShot Pro Subscription

There are a few things to remember with your KeyShot Pro subscription. First of all, you can see and manage any KeyShot subscription on the KeyShot Portal.

ℹ️Note: Your subscription license is only intended to be active for one user on one device at a time. However, you can install and sign-in to KeyShot on up to three different devices.

To Activate, Deactivate, and Disable devices, go to the KeyShot Help menu and select Manage Account. This will open in your browser (you’ll be prompted to login if not already). You’ll now be in your account on, where you can manage all products and devices your account is currently tied to.

A KeyShot Pro Subscription and your KeyShot Cloud account is just the start to many great features to come. You can learn more KeyShot Pro features in the KeyShot Manual. If you’re interested in trying KeyShot Pro, just visit
