Features Overview

Image Styles

Beautiful Style. In real-time.

Bloom Threshold

Control your highlights.

But not your excitement. KeyShot 8 image styles bring you the capabilities to fine-tune that bloom. And the control over curves can be done live using histogram controls or adjusting shadows, midtones and highights separately.

Cut it like this. Cut it like that.

Import your entire 3D model. No need to cut it up before bringing it into KeyShot. A cutaway is applied like a material to any geometry you like. So, scale, size and adjust that cut as much as you need.

Nested Dielectrics

Liquid simplicity.

Pour on the speed–Liquids are even easier in KeyShot 8. No need for splitting objects or separate surfaces. A glass. A liquid. KeyShot does the rest. Refreshing.
