KeyShot Animation Tutorial: Ticking Second Hand. In this KeyShot animation tutorial I’ll walk you through how to setup and animate a ticking second hand using a downloaded Braun Clock from modelplusmodel.com. I’ll be covering how to split separate parts using the geometry editor, how to use the center of another part as a pivot point and how to make the movements looks a bit more natural using a simple trick.
KeyShot tutorial: Material Study – Polarized Glass.
Despite being easy to use, KeyShot is capable of supporting the creation of advanced materials.
In this KeyShot tutorial I’ll walk you through how to create the look of a polarized glass – or – a material that is opaque from one side and transparent from the other. I’ll be using the geometry editor, the material graph and the experimental feature node called ‘Surface Backside Mask’. Check it out!
Spray paint brushes:
In this tutorial I walk you through the process of creating a spray paint overlay material in KeyShot using the material graph. I’ll be covering how to add a material as a label, how to use an opacity map, how to create your own spray paint mask in Photoshop and why it can give you better results by blurring the bump map slightly.
Hi guys. My name is Esben Oxholm. In this tutorial I will demonstrate how you easily can mirror a model directly inside keyshot. Let’s say you got this scissor model from one of you clients and you have set up some nice materials, some cool lighting and you’re ready to hit render. Then your client calls:
“eehm, actually we want this to be a left hand model.”
Shoot… but don’t worry it is easy to fix. Keyshot doesn’t have a specific mirror button, but it is quite easy to do anyways. What you have to do is to:
- Make a duplicate of your model
- Move it away from the original model
- Make sure the duplicate is selected
- Go to the position tab in the scene menu
- Adjust the scale value of the direction you want to mirror to -1
That is actually all there is to it. You now have a left hand version of your model.
