KeyShot 5 Pro will be be digitally delivered to you. Within 1 or 2 working days from your purchase you will receive an e-mail with your Licensing Information and instructions on how to download and activate the software.
KeyShot 5 Pro is a stand-alone 3D rendering and animation application that operates side by side your 3D modeling application. Rather than putting KeyShot 5 Pro inside the 3D modeling software, Luxion provide a more flexible approach with three levels of integration to import and render your design.
KeyShot 5 Pro supports the widest number of 3D file formats out of any rendering software. With importers for over 20+ file types and versions you can be sure your 3D data will be imported accurately into KeyShot 5 Pro. Direct import of the major 3D CAD applications and the generic 3D file formats is included with .obj export available in KeyShot Pro.
Our plugins extends the functionality between KeyShot 5 Pro and the 3D modeling application. Depending on the application, this higher level of integration makes it possible for the entire geometry along with its structure, color assignments and camera views to be imported and for KeyShot 5 Pro files to be exported without KeyShot 5 Pro being installed.
The plugins also allow Luxion's LiveLinking technology to establish a link between your 3D modeling software and KeyShot 5 Pro. This keeps the software separate, allowing you to continue working and refining your model, then send all changes over to KeyShot 5 Pro with the click of a button. All without losing any views, materials, textures or animations already applied.
Beyond direct import, plugins and LiveLinking, many of Luxion's partners have taken the steps to build KeyShot 5 Pro integration into their software, extending the functionality within the 3D modeling application. Once the 3D modeling application is installed, users may immediately export their files to KeyShot 5 Pro without the need to install a plugin. Users can apply materials, continue modeling and making updates to the geometry with all changes brought over to KeyShot 5 Pro to continue the rendering process.

How it Works
KeyShot 5 Pro is the fastest and easiest to use 3D rendering and animation software available. In just a few steps you can create amazing looking images from your 3D models that can be used throughout the product development process to make design decisions and quickly create variations of concepts for customer, manufacturing or marketing.
Step 1: Import your 3D model
With KeyShot 5 Pro open, import your BIP files, Alias WIRE, PTC Creo, Rhinoceros, SketchUp, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Pro/ENGINEER, IGES, STEP, OBJ, 3DS, COLLADA, and FBX data directly. KeyShot 5 Pro supports the most popular formats and has plugins for a few of them also.
Step 2: Paint your model
Use any of the 700+ scientifically accurate materials from the material library by simply copying and pasting them onto the model. You will instantly see what your design will look like, with the given material, color, and finish, under the current lighting conditions.
Step 3: Choose your lighting
Simply select an environment image (HDRI). As soon as you change the lighting environment you will notice the effect the real world lighting captured in those environments has on materials, colors and finishes.
Step 4: Adjust your camera
Framing your scene is just like using a real camera. You can change angle, distance and twist. You can control perspective with focal length and field of view settings and you can easily add depth of field to your scene.
Step 5: Adjust your background
Quickly and interactively cycle through colors, choose from pre-loaded photos, or set your own images as the background for your shot.
Step 6: Enjoy the perfect picture
You are done! From start to finish, a simple six step process to beautiful images, all happening in real-time – right in front of your eyes.
