As a graphic designer, I've created and produced a lot of packaging, which I normally render for my portfolio with Photoshop. The only problem with this method is that it's time-consuming and can be a bit difficult getting all of the renderings consistent with angle and lighting. This application seems to work pretty well, although it was a bit irritating to have to import the same dieline in three times, once for each visible surface; plus the open file dialog window didn't remember the last location, making me have to navigate back to my portfolio folder each time. I also couldn't find any way to set defaults, so that I could save a few standard different angle/lighting/shadow settings for different uses. Although it seems to be a good application, I can't see spending $80 for it as I would only need to use it occasionally. Also, I'm not sure what "shareware" means anymore, since one has to purchase the application to get it out of demo mode. Wouldn't "demoware" or "commercial" be a better category?

It's getting there. Can still be inaccurate when matching panels of wrapped around art. Hey dev, can you add an option to remove the rounded corners on the Tagged box shape? And the ability to punch out shapes/holes in panels. Also, what I'd really like is for it to output a Quicktime VR file so that my clients can see their artwork in a faux 3D environment.

Wish they made a less-expensive "lite" version for people who only need this ability very occasionally. :(

It's simply awesome: really easy to use and the result is outstanding. Rendering time isn't very impressive, but i can wait a little to the best output i've ever seen in such kind of software products.

Box shot 3D is a wonderful program If you need to produce beautiful realistic 3D virtual simple product shots in a quick and simple way (ie without having to learn or set up your standard complex 3D software). The program is easy and fun to use even for non-designers. There are many customizable template objects you can wrap into your designs and you can also import external 3D Studio objects (I have not used this feature yet, though). Images can be rendered up to 4000x4000 px which makes them usable even for producing print ads or posters. The program worked works without any quirks on my MacPro, using all 8 cores when rendering raytraced images. If you are interested in this kind of stuff I encourage you to give the demo a spin. Don't try the pirated versions because they will produce all kind of quirks and errors and will give you a completely wrong impression of the app. Try the demo instead and then go and support quality Mac software developers.

The lack of suggestions for similar products (at the time of writing) is a fair indication of this app's uniqueness on the Mac platform. In my business, this app is a heaven-sent - we generate at least 3 to 5 images with it every day and I'd hate to think how much time that would take in Photoshop. Sure, there a few quirks I'd like to see ironed out - like the size change function which doesn't do much for me when we have a wireobound book to do and which stretches the wireo unnaturally instead of creating additional coils - but overall, this is a pretty good product with a *very* responsive developer.

Absolutely brilliantly simple app to make 3D pack shots. Yep it can be done in PhotoShop or in a 3D app, but this makes something quite complex extremely easy. The developer is responsive and actively improves the app, in the 6 months since buying it it has had 6 updates each adding new features. I can't rave enough about how good this app is!
