Pros: I used Keyshot in school, and now in the startup I am working with. I have always found it to be the best rendering program I could get my hands on. It is easy enough to use that even beginners can get really cool renderings. I ended up getting the keyshot pro version because I felt like having the HDRI editor would be important to get more custom lighting environments. After using Keyshot over the last year, some of the features that I have really appreciated using in my workflow is the model sets and studios. As a designer I do a lot of iterations and so being able to make these different model sets and being able to switch between them quickly for comparison has been really valuable. The keyshot viewer software that goes along with that seems really useful for that too, though I haven't used it very much yet.

Cons: You want to make sure you have a pretty powerful computer because it definitely takes a lot. I am running on a windows surface and it works it pretty hard. Sometimes it takes a little while for the renderings to be done, but it works. The only other issue I have had is sometimes when I click to open the render dialogue box, the software will just close/crash and I lose all of my work if I didn't save beforehand. I have lost a couple of projects that way. Of course I should always save often, but I wish they had some kind of recovery method or something.

Overall: Overall, Keyshot is fantastic, and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone. The quality is astounding and can make your product look so good!

Pros: The best thing about keyshot is how easy the interface is and how simple it is to find the tools and settings you're looking for. The rendering is rather quick and I love just being able to drop materials on to parts of my CAD model based on how it looks in the side bar, which shows the material rendered onto a round ball. The material then assigns in realtime so you can toggle between choices quickly instead of waiting for a high quality render and comparing that way.

Cons: Sometimes will not quite understand your 3D geometry but for the most part does well with keeping the entire model structure together.

Overall: I

Pros: I liked how easy it was to learn and use. There were also many online youtube videos to help with simple tasks.

Cons: Not that great with fabrics, not GPU based rendering and better features added to version 8, but I am stuck on version 7 until I can make a use case for the upgrade.

Cons: when i use this, i was a little younger , and i needed tutorials and complementary info to operate the software, but it was a little too hard to find it for me

Overall: Its a very cool software, with very cool results if making virtual stidio sessions of products is your thing

Pros: By far, the easiest solution for computer rendering software. No fumbling, setting up lights, position or extra details, just import the software add the textures and render. Regardless of this simplicity it doesnt lack in features or extra customization that may improve your results greatly.

Cons: This tool is more focused on product rendering, so users looking for architectural or interior design solutions may not be happy with this software, although I've personally rendered interior spaces with great results.

Pros: I like the fact that you can integrate certain files from similar programs, and work within Keyshot without any big issues overall. Also, I love the fact that you can wrap the virtual surroundings in any 360 photo environment, and have it reflect onto the contents the project...the realism is amazing!

Cons: Honestly, it meets all my expectations and more but, the only thing that should be giving a boost is the animation options, but besides that, it's worth anyone's investment.

Overall: I tried other products that promise the same level of quality and outlook, but they required a little bit more "Add ons" to give you your desired results. Keyshot made the difference with being able to work a little more exclusively within the program without additional Plugins. The program definitely helped in giving my projects a real world look, and vibe...nothing else comes close at the moment, at least not for me in my opinion.

Overall: Keyshot has been very useful to me when i was a student and needed to quickly create images of my projects.

Love it! Takes some time to learn.

Pros: It's a great software that is capable of beautiful renderings! With enough experience you can create photorealistic renderings that would fool anyone.

Cons: Render times can be a bit slow depending on your computer but you can adjust settings so it doesn't completely slave your computer.

Pros: I liked that it didn't take me long to become familiar with the functionality and use of this product.

Cons: I am not a poweruser when it comes to 3D and maybe this is a great bit of software but we were using it to handle 3D models of cars coupled with backplate images in a teaching environment for photographers. There exists now other software options that might work better that you might already have on your desktop. Highly likely though that if 3D is your thing this might be a great software solution

Pros: I like that the free trial offers all of the features, so you can actually see if the program will be beneficial to you. I really like that it helps give clients a more realistic visual of my work.

Cons: I don't like that it takes so much space on your computer, and is pretty slow to download to begin with. It is also way out my price range.
