What is KeyShot Animation?

KeyShot Animation is the fastest way to create animated visuals of your 3D models. With the same real-time results you have when creating still imagery, KeyShot Animation allows you to build, light and adjust your animation as you create it. No more waiting. Just animations as fast as you can create them.

Individual Transforms

KeyShot Animation uses individual object and camera transforms that can be combined, copied and linked to deliver fully featured animations. These transforms allow you to quickly apply an animation, then adjust the parameters and duration with fewer mouse movements and operations.

Real-time Interaction

With KeyShot Animation you know exactly what your animation looks like before your render. Set up, edit and playback your animation in real-time ray traced environment. While you edit and playback the animation continue to add materials, explore lighting and adjust cameras.

Advanced Animations

With KeyShot Animation you have the capability to create complex animation scenarios quickly. With fade animations, camera path animations, panorama animations, DOF, Dolly and Zoom animations, and Camera Switch Events, you can quickly create full featured animation all within KeyShot.

Animation Timeline

The KeyShot Animation Timeline is the control centre for your animation. Access the Animation Wizard to walkthrough an animation setup. Play, scrub or preview your animation in real-time. See all your individual animations in one spot with the ability to group, mirror, lock, hide or duplicate any animation as needed.

Animation Import

Have animations created in other software? KeyShot can handle those too. Import your animations from Maya, 3ds Max, Cinema 4D, PTC Creo or import an FBX file directly. Additionally, using a KeyShot plugin with your software allows you to update your model changes in KeyShot as you continue setting up your animation.
