With KeyShot 3.3 we delivered KeyShotVR, a new, interactive way to share your 3D content with others. We've seen a lot of ways that people are using it to display their products and portfolios, so we wanted to provide a way for you to show what you've created or would like to create with KeyShotVR. We're looking for the best use of KeyShotVR and great examples to demonstrate how it can be used. Here are all the details.

For this contest, we don't have a specific theme or model for you to render. Instead, we want this to be an opportunity to share your work or use it as an experiment to show your boss, friends, clients, customers or shareholders how KeyShotVR can bring a whole new user experience to your products. We'll have two winners. One for Grand prize and a runner-up for First prize. The Grand prize wins a seat of KeyShot Pro + Animation + KeyShotVR, the First prize receives KeyShot + KeyShotVR. All will receive the enduring admiration of the KeyShot crew and community!

Note: If you have questions on the contest, simply reply to this thread.

KeyShotVR Contest

Providing a unique product experience that sets you apart is a must in today's marketplace. Stunning KeyShot renderings and animations is one way. Interactive 3D viewing with KeyShotVR is just one more way we're making that possible. Your goal? Create the most stunning KeyShotVR of your product, mock product or portfolio item. Share it with others and show the creative ways in which it can be used.


  • Create a KeyShotVR of a product or portfolio item
  • The KeyShotVR must be submitted with the following render settings:

    • Resolution: 800px by 800px
    • Smoothness: 10 degrees - 20 degrees increments in either direction. If doing a Turntable go with 10 degrees. For hemispherical and others go 20 degrees.
    • Image quality: Between 80 - 90% (in the KeyShotVR render tab - default setting is 80%.)

Note: For a KeyShot + KeyShotVR trial without watermarked renderings, email with "KeyShotVR Contest" in the subject line. You will receive a 15 day license for use in the contest.

You send it to us and we post it for you.


thank you Thomas . i send the folder as zip yesterday but i don't receive email to confirm if they receive the file or not.




Should have been more precise - who did you send it to?


i upload the file and i put my email ; what i do ?


Hi Josh,

Is it possible to get a trial activation code for KeyShotVR, so I can join the contest?



Absolutely Abed. Just email and we will set you up with a temp license for KeyShotVR.


I have a question. Can I go for the maximum smoothness control, i.e. 36x36?



Yes, it will take a bit of time to render and load though. It will be roughly 1000 images.

sunday 16 or tuesday 12 ?
