Likelihood to Recommend

GIMP

GIMP can be very helpful in companies or advertising and marketing agencies since it is a very powerful design tool with excellent features, however, the implementation of GIMP can be a little slow and difficult since not all users know how to use this tool.

KeyShot

KeyShot can do some really amazing things as far as product renderings. You can turn simple 3D models into realistic images in a very short amount of time. I wish there were a way to manipulate the geometry once imported into KeyShot. The software allows this user to move geometry but not change its shape or form.

KeyShot

  • Keyshot has a simple and intuitive interface that makes it easy to use for quick renderings.
  • Through Keyshot's viewport, you can see real-time changes when replacing or adding textures to a 3D model.
  • The new Keyshot 8 comes with volumetric features such as fog that can add depth to your image making process without having to manually do it later in another program.

Cons

GIMP

  • GIMP can sometimes take awhile to load, especially when downloading new font types.
  • Some of the complex features need a workaround method that requires copying or adjusting a layer before being able to make the desired changes. This can make some projects take a fair amount of time.

KeyShot

  • Would recommend a PC workstation for large projects.
  • File sizes can get pretty large.
  • Would love to see a monthly or per use pricing scheme.

It was a bit difficult and tedious to be able to communicate with the support of this software since they do not have one as such, however, with the help of its developers I was able to clarify my doubts.

Honestly, I've only needed customer support a couple of times. One time was a question about licensing which their customer service explained very well and offered just the help I was looking for

Alternatives Considered

GIMP

GIMP pretty much has all the tools that Photoshop has except it doesn't have the cost. If you know Photoshop, you'll know how to use GIMP. There are a few nuance differences between the tools but in general, GIMP can compete pound for pound with Photoshop. I initially was taught Photoshop in design school. Since I started using GIMP, I use it instead.

KeyShot

Keyshot is simpler and more intuitive compared to Octane. That being said, Octane is far less expensive and can take advantage of a GPU making it more versatile.

KeyShot

  • Keyshot has allowed me to incorporate a faster pipeline when it comes to quick concept designs.
  • Compared to other 3D rendering packages, Keyshot's user interface makes it easy to open the program and start working without a steeper learning curve.
