KEYSHOT WORKSTATION PC


Keyshot is a tool for creating and rendering 3D visuals. It is known for scientifically accurate rendering of 3D data and a focus on real-time rendering, which allows for artists to have a much better idea of what the final render will look like before committing time to it.

Keyshot is a radical modern re-imagining of computer visualization rendering. It provides for keyframe-less animation and can do things in real time that other more traditional renderers balk at. For example, it can do real time bloom and subsurface scattering. Keyshot also allows for global lighting and photon mapping.

Keyshot is also praised for the simplicity of both its workflow and interface. More often than not, you do not require specialist 3D modelling knowledge to rapidly create the visuals you require.

SYSTEM RECOMMENDATIONS:
Unlike many of the rendering leaders on the market, Keyshot is very heavily focused on CPU rendering. GPU power is used to generate effects and other optimized functions, but what Keyshot wants is CPU cores, and lots of them. Core speed is of course important, but because Keyshot scales linearly with every core you make available, it is almost always better to trade more cores for a slight loss in clock speed. You also want very good cooling solutions to get as much turbo clock headroom as possible.

A mid-range or even onboard GPU will be fine for Keyshot and the money you save on GPU costs should go into increasing RAM (to feed all cores) and getting a CPU with more cores. High core-count Xeon CPUs are highly recommended.

Recommended computer for KeyShot
KeyShot does not require any special hardware or graphics card and it 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.

Operating systems supported by KeyShot
Windows 10 64-bit Professional
Windows 8.1 64-bit (Pro)
Windows 7 64-bit (Professional and Ultimate)
Windows Server 2012
