KeyShot is a standalone 3D rendering and animation system for 3D data. It has been designed to take the complexity out of rendering realistic images. KeyShot is used by designers, engineers and CG professionals worldwide to quickly and easily create realistic images and animations of their 3D models.

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


KeyShot is built on a physically correct render engine based on research in the areas of scientifically accurate material representation and global illumination. Your scenes will really come to life because of this!


KeyShot is equipped with the following functionalities to offer you the highest level of rendering.

Powerful render farm capabilities to KeyShot users around the world.

KeyShot Farms offers powerful render farm capabilities to KeyShot users. Each shared and dedicated render farm is built exclusively for rendering KeyShot scenes.

Unlike other rendering services, your project has full use of the render farm. By running only one project at a time with 100% of all computer power utilized, your KeyShot visuals finish much faster than rendering on your own hardware and allows you to focus on your other projects. Additionally, all farm servers are operated securely onsite – no third-party cloud services, such as AWS or Azure, are used.
