  1. Measurement Units

    I would like being able to specify what measurement units (specifically inches, but others would be useful) my document uses.

    • 3 axis

      I think both Boxshot and Owlet should have 3-axis icon to control view of the axis.

      • Arrow Key Movement with Adjustable Incremental Units

        The idea is to be able to move objects using the Arrow keys. Additionally, a key command (like cmd-K or ctrl-K) would bring up a pop-up window in which one could specify the incremental units of movement per arrow keystroke.

        This is a feature readily available in Illustrator, and I think it would be equally effective in Boxshot.

        • export snapshot as material that we can

          Maybe you don't know BUT you can export material, as drag and drop, to external .mtl file. I that Way I build my own material library. It would be cool to export, in the same way, snapshots to use the same light and camera setup in different projects.

          • Change the order of shapes

            Hi. Could you change the order of shapes to have the external model and light option to appear at the top of the scroll area. I get the feeling that these options are used by most users now. Cheers

            • Boxshot could really use orthographic views!

              Front,Top, Right and the 3d view. It would make moving things in a 3d space so much easier!

                • Free camera controls with WASDQE

                  Navigating the scene to edit things can be a chore. Moving the camera using space is confusing, and can only move along 2 axes at a time. A camera-relative free flight control option would be very useful. The one in the Unity3D editor is a good example: hold right mouse to rotate the camera, then use WASD to move relative to the camera and QE to raise and lower it.

                  The camera's origin could move along with the camera to preserve the existing zoom / rotation based movement approach.

                  • Page Curls or Sticker Curl

                    To add more realism a page curl effect would be nice. It would also be great to be able to create a standalone sticker with a curl or something like that.

                    A plugin used to exist for photoshop but is obsolete. Here is a gallery of the type of effect that I'm asking you to vote for: ttp://www.avbros.com/gallery.html?g=pagecurlpro

                    • The ability to set the centre point of a group.

                      The ability to set the centre point of a group, so that you can choose the centre point that is used for rotation. I often use the step and repeat function, but if I want to rotate the group it is always the original repeated model which is the centre point. Being able to set the centre point at the centre of the grouped objects would be very useful.

                      • zoom wheel function on keyboard using CMD plus and minus like photoshop

                        for people that use tablets a simple wheel zoom in and out feature from the mouse is unavailable.

                        two simple shortcut keys could be added the same as photoshop and illustrator.

                        CMD + to zoom in and CMD - to zoom out.

                        Simple and easy to add.

                              When i want to crop an image, i Always have to zoom in by clicking on the '+' like 5 or 6 times for each side of the box. And when i do 50 packages a day that isjust too many clicks. I would like to see the zoom slider you had in BoxShot 3 return.

                              • Ratation

                                I think it should be a great help if the rotation bars in the transformation pane would be the same colors as the rotation cirkels in the 3D mockup. The bars are all orange. If they would be green, red and blue it would help the user a lot :)

                                • Put in an option to edit the path to a placed image.

                                  Hi Vitaly,

                                  We recently changed the hierarchy of our server. Now the images we used in most of our renderings have another location. So all our placed images we used in Boxhot are 'gone'.
                                  It would be nice if we could alter the path to the images so we could relink them without having to crop them again.

                                  • Save background presets

                                    Every image I create I must edit the background to transparent, no floor, diffuse floor lighting, then adjust the level and decay. It would be so handy if I could simply save a preset or "Save as default" rather than having to manually adjust these items for each and every image I create with Boxshot.

                                    This same preset behavior could also be carried over to the elements, set as defaults for a paperback, set as defaults for a hard cover, set as defaults for a magazine, etc.

                                      When looking at a problematic file it is not possible to move around and see where the problems are. You can only rotate around the center. If there was a little more control over what you see that would be great. A bit better feedback about what the problems are would be great too. Sometimes I get the X and try hard to fix that when it was really a line somewhere else that was the problem.

                                      • Origami assemble parts

                                        So I have a display that is a folded cardboard front, a folded back and a top sign. It would be great if I could so all the assembly in Origami. For now I made the parts individually, exported and assembled in Boxshot. It worked fine but was especially hard since they were not aligned the same. So there was a lot of fidgeting with angles. So a way to align the parts the same so they are easy to assemble in Boxshot would be nice. Maybe some magnetic sides? It would also be great if it could sense the…

                                        • Replace Model in composition

                                          One of my clients imports products from China and each product could be in several different colour ways. When I create a composition with one colour way, say a front, back and side. It would be brilliant if I could replace the full model with a different colour variant and it would have the same position etc as the previous colour option.

                                          Thanks
