KeyShot doesnʼt require any special hardware or graphics card. KeyShot takes full advantage of all cores and threads inside a computer. As your computer gets more powerful KeyShot becomes faster. The performance scales linearly with the number of cores and threads in your system.

Everything inside KeyShot happens in realtime. KeyShot uses unique rendering technology which makes it possible to see all changes to materials, lighting, and cameras instantly. You donʼt need to hit the render button and wait for minutes or hours to wait for the results. As soon as you assign a material to a part, you will see what a material will look like under the given lighting conditions.

KeyShot is tightly integrated with your 3D data. When you import 3D geometry, KeyShot maintains the entire model structure including part and assembly names. Changes made to your model in 3D can import back into KeyShot without having to reassign materials or lighting. In addition, KeyShot can also be accessed directly from within many 3D software packages through a plugin.

Large data sets

KeyShot can handle extremely large data sets. There are no restrictions on the size of the data set as long as the computer has enough memory available. KeyShot is highly optimized which makes it possible to work with models with tens of millions of polygons even on a laptop.
