Configurator Output

The Configurator option in the Render dialog offers following output options, based on the configuration set up with the Configurator Wizard:

  • Images: Render a series of still images and their accompanying metadata of optional Model, Material, and Studio Variations that were setup via the Configurator Wizard.
  • Web Configurator: If you have the KeyShotWeb add-on you will also be able to output for the web. Either in the form of a webpage or an iBook widget. The webpage/iBook widget will have the same UI as Presentation mode/KeyShot Viewer in terms of selecting model, material and studio - but it will not offer camera movement, as it is based on still images.


Images

Include
This option allows you to specify which variations are included in the Configurator output.

Images
This value will display the total number of images to be output determined by the included variations. The value will update dynamically as the Include check-boxes are marked and unmarked. 

Name
Select the Prefix and Name Template that fits your needs. An incremented postfix will be added to the name to ensure that there won't be naming conflicts.
If the Template includes either the System or Scene Revision # you can reset them here. The Filename shows the full render name generated from the Prefix and the active Name Template + incremented postfix.  Learn More about Name Templates.

Folder
Choose where the render will be saved. Unless a specific folder is chosen, it will be saved in your default rendering-folder.

Format
Choose from JPG, TIF, EXR, TIF 32 Bit, PNG, PSD, and PSD 32 bit. All formats other than JPG can include an alpha channel.

Resolution
Set the resolution of the render. Type it in or select from the presets.

Print Size
If final output is for print quality, enter in the dimensions of the print size as well as the desired DPI. After size has been set, the resolution will update with the correct dimensions.

Web Configurations

Create iBooks Widget
When enabled KeyShot will output both the webpage and a create an iBook widget that you can use for iPhone/iPad in an iBook.

Update layout and thumbnails of existing Web Configurator
If you have already rendered a configuration once, and only made a few tweaks to the layout itself or the thumbnials, there is no need to re-render everything. Simply enable Update layout and thumbnails of existing Web Configurator, point to the folder containing the web configuration and press Update Web Configurator. KeyShot will update .css/.js files or the iBook widget, depending on which configuration you have chosen to update.

Note

The Update option will not detect changes to Materials, Model Sets or the choices within the configurator. If you have made changes to any of these, you need to render everything again

Images
This value will display the total number of images the configurator needs to work.
