KeyShotXR Output

The KeyShotXR output option is available if the KeyShotXR Add-on is installed. These options provide setup and output of a KeyShotXR as well as options for render layers and render passes.All the parameters set in the KeyShotXR Wzard can be edited in the KeyShotXR Render Output options as well. Additionally, there are other options for file format, file size, and iBooks output for viewing on iOS devices. There are also Advanced options for KeyShotXR control, customization and direct upload to a website via FTP. This section describes these settings in detail.

Output Options

This section allows you to set up the resolution as well as the destination of the KeyShotXR.

Image Quality
Selecting the “Preview” button will render one frame from the KeyShotXR and has a compression slider that allows adjustments to the quality of the image, and updates in real-time. Be aware that a larger file size could increase the time to load the KeyShotXR in the browser.

iBook Widget
If this is enabled, an HTML5 widget will be output in the same folder as your KeyShotXR which can be embedded in an iBook using iAuthor. Choose the Ppad model that you will be creating the iBook for from the drop-down options.

KeyShotXR Control

Rotation Control


Smoothness Control

Animation Frames
If animation is applied to the scene, you will be able to create a KeyShotXR from this animation. Additional parameters will be shown if enabled. See previous page for animation frames settings.

Horizontal Frames
This controls the number of frames in the “X” direction. The higher the number of frames, the more smoothly your model will rotate.

Vertical Frames
This controls the number of frames in the “Y” direction. The higher the number of frames the more smoothly your model will rotate.

Number of Images to be Rendered
This shows the number of images to render based on the number of horizontal and vertical frames.

Horizontal/Vertical Angle Increments
This shows the degrees between each frame. This value will change depending on the number of vertical and horizontal frames and the starting and ending angles.

Angle Control

Use these sliders to control the beginning and ending of the KeyShotXR.

This controls the beginning and end of the rotation on the “X” plane.

This controls the beginning and end of the rotation on the “Y” plane.


Advanced settings for KeyShotXR are located in a drop-down menu on the same window as the custom settings. This menu controls how your KeyShotXR interacts in the web browser.

Rotation Damping
Increasing this value will reduce the time it takes a model to come to a rest after rotating it.

Mouse Sensitivity
This controls the overall mouse sensitivity in the KeyShotXR . Increasing this value will increase the model movement with less mouse movement.

Enabling zoom-in will allow you to zoom into the KeyShotXR when inside the browser. Use the “Maximum Allowed Zoom-In Percent” slider to control the amount the user can zoom in your KeyShotXR. Note: To ensure the browser page will scroll when the mouse scroll wheel is used while over the KeyShotXR, this option will need to be disabled.

Preserve Image Quality
Enable this option to render the frames at larger resolution for optimal image quality when zooming in. The image quality will be preserved when zooming in by enlarging the rendered frame resolution accordingly. This is separate from the viewport resolution setting for each frame. This will also increase the KeyShotXR file size.

Download on interaction
Enabling this option will set the KeyShotXR to only load the images into the browser after the user interacts with the KeyShotXR .

Allow Fullscreen Mode By Double-Click
Double-clicking the left mouse button will enter full-screen mode.

Show Loading Icon
enabling this will allow the loading icon to be shown when the KeyShotXR is loading in the browser. This image can be changed by selecting “Browse” and browsing to the image file you prefer.

Name of Div
This defines the KeyShotXR section in the HTML code.

FTP Deployment
Enable this option to allow KeyShot to load the rendered KeyShotXR directly into your FTP address.

Confirm Before Deployment
When the KeyShotXR is finished rendering, you will be prompted to accept the deployment to the FTP site.

Generate Embeddable HTML Code
This will give you the code necessary for implementing your KeyShotVR in a website using the iframe tag.

Embed FTP Settings in BIP File
This will save all the FTP credentials inside your KeyShot BIP file for easy deployment by another user.
