    Tips, news, and insight on KeyShot and 3D Rendering

    What formats does KeyShot support? I'm so glad to pretend you asked. I could just say, "All of them." and while that's partially true, I think I should just show you so there's no doubt. Before you look though, there's one thing to note. KeyShot is the first application ever to support all these formats... on both PC and Mac. ...Ever.

    Now, if you're looking at this post from the year 2020, it will be slightly outdated as we've added more, but here are the supported formats and you can be sure we'll be adding more to give you the ultimate flexibility in bringing 3D models into KeyShot.
