Title: KeyShot 2012 3D Rendering Contest Guidelines
Post by: Josh3D on April 25, 2012, 02:54:09 pm
We're kicking off another rendering contest to give you a chance to win a license of KeyShot Pro with Animation! Style and class is the theme of this years rendering contest.  We'll have two winners. One for best rendering and one for best animation. We provide the details, you provide the creativity and the stunning 3D rendering. The best rendering and best animation wins a seat of KeyShot Pro with Animation and the enduring admiration of KeyShot community! Here are all the details.

Note: If you have questions on the contest, simply reply to this thread.



KeyShot 3D Rendering Contest

What doesn't say style and class like an incredibly large timepiece on your wrist shooting the glares of the sun into people's face? This year we're rendering a watch. It can be any watch or you can use the one provided below.  Your goal? Create a captivating rendering or animation of the watch.

Criteria:

Note: For a KeyShot trial without watermarked renderings, email license@luxion.com with "KeyShot 3D Rendering Contest" in the subject line. You will receive a 15 day license for use in the contest.


Submission:
To submit your rendering to enter the contest:

Note: In your submission it's nice to know what work went into your rendering or animation! Tell us what modeling software or other tools are used. If post editing is done, show a before and after. It's always interesting to see!

Judged on:
The submissions will be judged on three criteria:

Prizes:
Best Rendering: KeyShot Pro with Animation
Best Animation: KeyShot Pro with Animation


Deadline:
Saturday May 26th, Midnight PST.

Announcement:
The winner will be announced May 31st on the KeyShot blog, newsletter, Facebook page and Twitter.

File Download:
Feel free to use the .bip file of the watch model for your submission should you so desire. This is no ordinary watch model though. This comes chock full of gears, has a crown, hands, and bezel, a watchband and an ever so elegant KeyShot logo emblazoned upon the dial.

Note: You may also choose to use a watch model from GrabCAD (http://grabcad.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&query=watch - Be sure to give credit to the creator of the model you use.)

As part of my mental preparation for this contest:
Can we add our own geometry to the scene or may we only use the provided model?

Greetings,
Dries

You are completely free to use any geometry you desire. You can even use your own watch model or one created by someone else. Have fun!

I'm not sure if its intentional or an oversight, but the Keyshot watch model posted above can only be opened in Keyshot 3.xx, so anyone with an older version can't enter, at least not with this particular model.

You can always request a KeyShot 3 license. KeyShot 3 will not interfere with your KeyShot 2 setup.

Can you provide the 3d model of the Keyshot watch? I would like to use some parts of it in my design.

Copyright protection prevents us from issuing the original geometry. We can only provide the bip file.

No problem. I spent most of last night modelling the parts I need.

Having fun with this one.

Are swf files permitted? 

If so, can you enable the ability to "Embed flash into posts" files in this forum?  Thanks.

The only problem with these "competitions" is that those of us who have the older versions of Keyshot  (V 1.9.54) and could really benefit from a new seat, have no way of competing realistically with the ones who already have the newer software and therefore don't need it anyway. And of course there are those who get to finalize or add to there renderings in photoshop or some other secondary software . It really turns this "competition" lopsided.
The only way to compete on the same level would be to basically take our names down and pull one out of a hat.

We would be happy to provide a temporary license of KeyShot 3 for you to use, just contact support@luxion.com.

Could you provide a version of the watch file that runs on Keyshot 2.3?
Title: Re: KeyShot 2012 3D Rendering Contest Guidelines
Post by: J.B. on May 15, 2012, 12:17:29 pm
Thanks Jeff.

I hadn't thought of it that way since I already have a license, even though it's for an older version. PM sent.

Hello, i have a question about the contest.
Can we use customized materials (textures, labels, alpha...) ? or we've to use the default materials?. And, if we use customized materiales; Can we use any Label, for example a logo of an international well-known brand? And Background, just the default or can we design it or download from internet...

Post by: guest84672 on May 20, 2012, 07:17:49 am
Of court you can use your own materials, textures etc. You can use whatever you like. You may want to be careful with the logos of other brands. These companies usually don't like this, and could prevent us from posting an image.

My name is Joseph, I am an Industrial Design student at Walla Walla University. Over the last few days I have seen many of the entries already posted in the forum. An after viewing several entries I thought that KeyShot should of split up the judging between professionals and students. Only so that the skill-set can be judged correctly. Maybe KeyShot could put up an educational prize for people who are students. I know I will be submitting an entry tomorrow, so wish me the best of luck.
