Luxion Introduces KeyShotVR: Interactive Web Viewing of High-Quality 3D Rendered Images

(August 08, 2012)

Irvine, CA, August 08, 2012 --( Luxion, a leading provider of advanced 3D rendering and lighting technology and makers of KeyShot®, the first realtime ray tracing and global illumination program are pleased to introduce KeyShotVRTM an all new, patent-pending technology from Luxion that allows interactive viewing of photographic, high-quality rendered content via the web.

What is KeyShotVR?

KeyShotVR bring the advantage of interactive 3D-enabled viewing via desktop, laptop or mobile device to product portfolios, presentations and collateral for design reviews. Product designers, marketers and KeyShot users who want to extend the presentation of their visuals are able to create the high-quality, ray-traced 3D content directly from inside KeyShot. KeyShotVR is an integrated add-on to KeyShot Pro that automatically generates the code to be embedded into any website or company intranet, making it a turnkey solution for web content creation.

With KeyShotVR, users can create high-quality, touch-enabled, 3D rendered content capable of being displayed in any web browser supporting HTML5. The content can be viewed using mouse or finger on touch-enabled devices and does not require a browser plugin to work. Furthermore, KeyShot is not WebGL based and is therefore able to deliver the highest quality of images possible across the widest range of devices.

How it works
With KeyShotVR enabled via an upgraded KeyShot license file, an additional VR button will appear in the toolbar. When a scene is loaded and the VR button is pressed, a wizard guides the user through the setup of the VR, with on-screen, interactive feedback of the final VR result. KeyShot will produce the individual images of the VR content, the HTML code for integration into any website and the JavaScript to support progressive loading of images.
