“It’s clear, helpful and packed with helpful tips. I’m not even halfway through and I’ve already got a list of cool things to implement in my Keyshot Workflow. Money well spent!”

Stephan Vonwiller,

Michael Planck,
Industrial Designer
“I’ve been using Keyshot for 4 years, but had no idea that it would be this easy to significantly improve my renders. I particularly enjoyed all the nifty tricks and shortcuts in both Keyshot and Photoshop. The introduction to creating a custom lighting environment and using the material graph, w. bumps etc. was great. The course was well explained and at a good pace. Learned a lot in a short time!”

Bruno Suraski,

“An overall in depth approach to KS regarding how to achieve professional 3D projects for Industrial Designers. I would say the strongest aspect of the video is how to learn to unleash the power of material-graph.”
