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

    I absolutely love getting emails from people who are users of KeyShot and those trying KeyShot for the very first time. I received an email a couple days ago from a HiDynamic Productions who create CGI's for Automotive, Urban and Landscape settings as well as extremely rich HDRI's. These are their first renderings created in KeyShot.

    These... are just fabulous. A Maserati-GranCabrio. Great subject matter for a striking image and a car I wouldn't mind seeing in my driveway. It's on my desktop now, thanks to Karsten Ahlers who told us a little about how the image came together.

    Karsten: The backgrounds are sections of scene we adapted for KeyShot (no separate backplates have been used). The environment is in fact a "pimped" 360° HDRi created from my original high resolution HDRi (15.000 x 7.500 pixels) and with a few tweaks it worked fine in KeyShot.

    "It's a great app and is working very well for us."

    The HDRi was retouched and color corrected and we used the tone-mapped version for the background texture. Then we modeled and textured a platform for the Maserati and integrated it into the scene.

    Here are five other versions. I honestly can't decide which color I like best. I think I'll go with black. You?
