I discuss the topic of the Pistonrobot videos and the topic of KeyShot Package files in more detail in another page at the website, if you want to read this page, then its link is:
KeyShot Package files are special compressed data-image files that are created by the program KeyShot.
This “Create Package File” option is most often used to allow various users of KeyShot to open and work with a copies of KeyShot projects that were created by other users of KeyShot.
For example, suppose that KeyShot user#1 is communicating with KeyShot user#2, and KeyShot user#1 wishes that KeyShot user#2 could be able “see and work with” user#1’s KeyShot project named: Crystal Lens Project
User#1 requests KeyShot to make a Package File of the “Crystal Lens Project”. User#1 can choose what name is given to the ksp file, and chooses: Crystal Lens Project.ksp.
User#1 could then send the file: Crystal Lens Project.ksp to user#2 .
User#2 could open his own copy of KeyShot and ask that KeyShot copy to open the file: Crystal Lens Project.ksp
User#2 will then be viewing the Crystal Lens Project in the same form that it had when user#1 created “The Crystal Lens.ksp” file.
Note: These *.ksp files are a KeyShot file type, and one needs KeyShot in order to open *.ksp files.
For those of you who have KeyShot and you want to see how the Pistonrobot videos were put together, at least for the portion where individual images of the robot were rendered, then you can download these ksp files.
Of note, my KeyShot program is the educational version of KeyShot. The policy of KeyShot is that if a *.ksp file was created by an educational version of KeyShot, then this *.ksp file can only be opened by another educational version of KeyShot.
So, if you wish to use a non-educational version of KeyShot to open these package files, then you need to contact KeyShot and ask them how to do this.
Also, my robot related *.ksp files contain all that is needed to work with my robot images in KeyShot, and the result is that my robot related *.ksp files are fairly large (in the range of 100-250 mb), so if you choose to download them, you need to be patient enough for the whole file to download.
If you want to try this KeyShot Package file activity just to see how it works, without needing to wait through a long download, then I recommend download this file:KeyShot Package File Only the Floor used in the Little Robots Walking Scenes, (1.5 mb)
The imagery of this Floor related ksp file is not very complex, which means that the ksp file is not very large (about 1.3 mb), so it should be a quick download.
Of note, I plan to put in the Free Downloads – Images area, higher resolution versions of the thumbnails below that show these KeyShot files
