Why KeyShot rendering for PTC Creo?
You don’t have to be a rendering expert to create photorealistic images of your 3D model.
Everything inside KeyShot happens in realtime.
KeyShot is the most accurate rendering solution for your 3D data.
KeyShot takes full advantage of all cores and threads inside a computer.
KeyShot rendering for PTC Creo has direct import support including the ability to make model changes in 3D on the fly.
Large data sets
Since data is stored in RAM, KeyShot can handle extremely large data sets – even on simple laptops.
With Luxion’s LiveLinking technology, KeyShot and PTC Creo are connected via a live session. PTC Creo users are able to make a change to the design at any level–update geometry, add, delete or move components–and send those updates directly to a running session of KeyShot. The scene inside KeyShot updates automatically while maintaining all materials, animation, camera and lighting setup. Optionally, the user can add a new design iteration to the scene rather than updating the existing design.
Included with the KeyShot plugin is the ability to transfer PTC Creo Mechanism into KeyShot. Users can create their mechanisms in PTC Creo, or take existing mechanisms, and with the selection of a button on the KeyShot tab, transfer the animation via the .fra animation file directly into KeyShot. The animations can be played back, adjusted in length, or used to create additional animation sequences. Once satisfied with the setup, the user can render out a high quality movie of the animation.

You don’t have to be a rendering expert to create a photorealistic rendering for PTC Creo models. Simply import your 3D data into KeyShot, assign materials by dragging and dropping them onto the model, adjust the lighting, and move the camera. Done. You see everything happen instantly right in front of you.
KeyShot doesnʼt require any special hardware or graphics card. KeyShot 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.
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 need to hit the render button and wait for minutes or hours to wait for the results. As soon as you assign a material to a part, you will see what a material will look like under the given lighting conditions.
KeyShot is tightly integrated with your PTC Creo data. When you import 3D geometry, KeyShot maintains the entire model structure including part and assembly names. Changes made to your model in 3D can import back into KeyShot without having to reassign materials or lighting. In addition, KeyShot can also be accessed directly from within the PTC Creo or Pro/ENGINEER interface through a plugin.
KeyShot is the most accurate rendering solution for your PTC Creo data. KeyShot uses scientifically accurate materials and real-world lighting. KeyShot is the only application that is certified by the CIE (http://www.cie.co.at) for accurately simulating lighting in computer graphics.
Large data sets
KeyShot can handle extremely large data sets. There are no restrictions on the size of the data set as long as the computer has enough memory available. KeyShot is highly optimized which makes it possible to work with models with tens of millions of polygons even on a laptop.
