KeyShot - Video Tutorial
In this video we give an introduction to rendering out of Rhino for Windows with KeyShot.
KeyShot is an easy to use, photorealistic renderer, and if your aim is to create great looking images without a steep learning curve, then KeyShot has much to recommend it.
KeyShot is a standalone render product and imports data from many common models. So if you use Rhino with, for example, SOLIDWORKS, then KeyShot can render content from both.
A useful addition for Rhino for Windows users is the plugin that allows for live linking, meaning that the geometry can be updated in Rhino and then be pushed to KeyShot on the fly.
The starting point for the exercise is this Rhino model of a wrist watch. All of the components are modelled as water tight solids and each set of components are on individual layers. So for example, the hour, minute and second hands are separated as are the painted areas of the hands which will be rendered in a different material. By default, KeyShot applies materials on a per layer basis.
We’re using Rhino for Windows and KeyShot version 6.2 plus we’ve installed the KeyShot for Rhino (Windows version) plugin.
If you use Rhino on the Mac platform then be sure to check back with us as we'll be producing a KeyShot for Rhino for Mac tutorial in the near future.
