About Bunkspeed SHOT Pro
SHOT Pro is the world’s first hybrid 3D rendering application that produces stunningly photorealistic images and 360-degree animation with ease.

SHOT Pro enables users to perfectly simulate real-world lighting and materials -- including the subtle effects of indirect illumination and refraction -- in minutes rather than hours. Additionally, SHOT Pro integrated with mental image's iray® rendering technology leverages NVIDIA® Quadro® professional graphics solutions to enable a combination of unprecedented power, elegance and accuracy.

SHOT Pro seamlessly integrates with Solidworks 2011 and other leading CAD applications – via a plug-in or importer – allowing users to add materials, change out lighting environments and apply various back plates to produce stunningly photorealistic results.
