There are three primary methods for generating output from KeyShot.

1. Screenshots

A screenshot of the Real-time View can be generated by selecting the Screenshot button on the Toolbar or by hitting the P-key. Screenshots will by default be saved in your Resources/Renderings folder. If you want to store your screenshots elsewhere you can check the Ask where to save each screenshot option Preferences, where you also can select the output format and select if you want to save a camera when you take a screenshot and if you want to output metadata as well. Finally you can use the option to Copy screenshot to clipboard in the Main Menu>Render.

File format output:

  • JPEG
  • PNG
