Luxion introduces KeyShotVR
LOS ANGELES — Luxion, a provider of advanced rendering and lighting technology, has introduced KeyShotVR (www.keyshot.com), an all new technology that allows interactive viewing of photographic, high-quality rendered content via the Web.

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 browser supporting HTML5. The content can be viewed using a mouse or finger on touch-enabled devices and does not require a browser plug-in to work. Furthermore, KeyShot is not WebGL based and is therefore able to deliver high quality images across a wide range of devices. 

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.

KeyShotVR is priced at a $1,000 as an add-on to KeyShot Pro (NL/FL). KeyShotVR is currently undergoing extensive Beta testing. It will be available within the next few weeks through Luxion's webstore.
