  1. Able to change materials's color for grayscale or bitmap mode...

    It would be great and easier if user able to change material's color directly in Boxshot and Owlet for grayscale and bitmap mode... Nowadays, if we want a product have many color variants, then we have to save many material files with different color.

          You can place artwork on both front and back sides of the blister, you can make pockets metallic by editing their materials. Finally, you can make perforation-like effect using bump.

          It looks like everything is already there, isn’t it?

            • Ability to use PDF files as Texture in Widows

              The ability of dragging a PDF onto boxshot model. I could use PDF in Boxshot 3 on the Apple but we now work on a PC and now i have to make a JPG of every PDF first to make the 3D packaging and that is simply too much work. Hope this comes in future.

              • You should be able to change material parameters globally

                Right now it seems you need to adjust each side of the box individually, but it would be nice (and convenient) to add an option to link material changes made to one side, to all the others...

                          First of all: what a great piece of software for such reasonable price! I only have one complain about this, I can't make packshots with shrinkfoils.

                          See this example what I mean: http://forum.bodybuilding.gr/attachment.php?attachmentid=17034&stc=1&d=1287728077

                          I can make great packshots for labels, but is it possible to stretch the labels till the cap and bottom? That will make everything perfect!

                          Hope to hear from you soon!

                              • Multi-Page PDFs for Texture

                                Oftentimes when I design materials -- websites, collateral materials, stationery packages, etc -- I'll make a PDF export with the different components of the project seen on different pages of the PDF.

                                For example, Side One of a business card might be on Page One of a PDF, while Side Two would appear on Page Two. As it stands, Boxshot only recognizes the first page and ignores all the others.

                                I would like, when choosing a PDF texture, for Boxshot to ask me which page it should use rather than making me export multiple PDFs for each surface.

                                  • Zoom wheel functionality within the texture crop window

                                    When cropping down the size of the image texture, the plus and minus zoom buttons are a little clunky. Can you provide more control in this window like using the mouse's scroll wheel to zoom? Also, dragging the controls left and right to increase or decrease the zoom number–similar to the rest of the UI; Allowing manual input of zoom strength; or even a navigation palette that you can drag around like in photoshop; One more idea: Create a 4 cornered square icon. You can click on the one quadrant to activate the "zoom to crop area". Then click on…

                                      Hi, I have placed a deveice (monitor) on an image. The image is a picture of a wooden floor. Everything is fine, however the dropshadow from the monitor is not shown on my image (wooden floor) but rather underneath it! It's very crucial to be able to place something on a floor, so either we have a scene feature where we can add a floor or we use a workaround by using an image and placing it on the floor. however shadows and reflection should work in either case.

                                      Thanks

                                      • Please make the option available to separate front/side/back covers for BINDERS and other shapes.

                                        Just like with the book, we need the option to separate front/side/back covers on binders and other shapes.

                                        • Find imported materials when files are moved.

                                          Boxshot cannot find the imported material PSD files IF they're moved- even when they're in the same new folder as the boxshot file. I've have scene built with six objects (all the same) that use three different materials files. I have to repeat this for multiple products and being able to just rename these three materials panels for each product and isolate them with the boxshot file would be a HUGE time saver. Even if I locate the missing materials file, boxshot does not automatically find the rest. So I am faced with manually updating each of three the panels…
