I used Keyshot previously for rendering, but we are switching to Visualize as it comes free with the license. I find really frustrating when trying to get the same effect as you can get on keyshot.
the Visualize standard (free) is junk. You have to get Professional before you can really use the program to the full potential.
I wouldn't be so drastic, but close enough. You can achieve a much better quality image with Keyshot 5, then with Visualize 2018, the controls in visualize are ridiculous and so time-consuming.
i completely agree! Some of the edit features make you go in a long loop around just to change simply features.
Can you be more specific or maybe post an example? Also have you watched the basic getting started training
SOLIDWORKS Visualize | MySolidWorks Training
I CAN NEVER GET THOSE TO PLAY...
You need to have a Legal licensed copy of Solidworks to view the tutorials... Then they work fine.
Honestly, I just wish I could move the viewport 360deg in all directions. Having to go back into Solidworks to set up cameras isn't a great workflow when I could have simply moved the viewport to where I wanted if only Visualize would have let me.
That doesn't seem to be right Jeffrey, something must be wrong. You can definitely move the camera just the same as in Solidworks in Visualize Standard. You can also create as many cameras as you want and have each of them positioned separately. Did I misunderstand what you are saying?
A couple tips Jeffrey just in case you've run into this.
On the General tab in the cameras pallet, uncheck "Keep Above Floor" so you can pan down below the model.
If you've imported a camera in with the model from Solidworks, the camera can come in with a twist value applied that can make navigation a bit wonky. On the Transform tab, reset the Twist value to 0, or create a new camera.
Thank you for the tip Mark.
I've noticed that "Keep Above Floor" only works on some models, and it sometimes needs to be toggled on and then off in order to work.
Perhaps the controls in Viz Pro work better. I'm just using the basic version which was bundled with my SW18 license.
they not only work better there is also more of them, i couldn't believe the difference in standard and pro. its like going from MS paint to Photoshop
