  1. Buy just owlet rendering engine to boxshot

    Is there a way to make it possible to buy just owlet render engine and use it in boxshot? I don't really need the whole owlet app for just rendering.
    Thanks

      We have no plans on releasing just a rendering part of Owlet because there is no 100% working way to match Boxshot materials to the Owlet ones. On the other hand, we reduced Owlet price to the level where you can probably afford the whole application instead of just renderer.

    • Increase Render Size for Home Edition to 2500px

      I understand that this is a diffentiation issue. At the same time this would be helpful as Amazon Cover Images should be sent with 2500px in height / width.
      Could You increase render size just to this size. This enables all user to send high quality images (native render size) to Amazon. Even 2500px vs. 8000px is still a big differentiator ;-) Thank you in advance.

        Sorry guys, this is hardly possible. Home edition is for hobby and web projects, where 1024 is still OK. If you’d like higher resolution, consider the Professional edition which supports resolutions up to 8K and much more.

      • Make liquids e.g. in tea mug adjustable

        I'd like to setup the height of liquids or remove them complete.

        • Love WebGL export... please bring this past BETA in version 4.10 or 4.11

          Simply improve the export of WebGL from (beta), perhaps to include shadows and reflections?

          Hands down, Boxshot4 export WebGL beats Blenders offering of exporting .X3D code, copy and pasting the code into the suggested online weblink to convert to HTML5; copy and paste again resulting code - save file. And the result is not a responsive scalable file, either.

            We have dropped out WebGL export from Boxshot in favor of Koru which is now free even for non-commercial usage. There’s no reasons for us to keep two similar functionalities in two different applications. Consider switching to Koru for your WebGL export.

          • Add camera presets in Boxshot 4 to render/export for Boxshot VR use

            It sure would be nice once a model is built, to have a built-in camera path/export script to facilitate generating all of the images needed for use in Boxshot VR.

            1) Build model
            2) Select "Export to VR" (defining number of rows, columns, etc)
            3) PROFIT

            • Retain transparency and background image when exporting to HTML

              I noticed when using the new export to HTML Beta Feature, that the transparency is not retained... I would like this to be fixed. also, to have the background image included.

              • Add imported shapes from downloaded sets to left panel where default shapes are

                It's quite inconvenient to browse inside folder of downloaded shapes, trying to guess which file is what. Other possibility is to add to .boxshotModel filetype some kind of preview as icon (Google Sketchup used it on previous versions) which would just help to understand what's inside

                  As long as Boxshot keeps references to external shapes instead of storing them inside the projects, adding files to the left panel means that the project will not open on another computer.

                  That’s why we recommend to manage external 3D files manually, exactly as you manage texture images.

                  We’ll probably change this in the future versions of Boxshot and then you will be able to add shapes to the left panel.

                • Please teach us how to copy and modify existing boxshot models

                  I like to modify existing boxshot models, for example I need more place on clothes for design (not only a square in a fixed size), or I like to create other handles on tea mugs... How can I open .boxshotModel and modify it?

                    Unfortunately, you can’t. These Boxshot models are static files, not intended for modifying. I would recommend to find a third-party shape you need on sites like turbosquid.com and modify it the way you need.

                    We’ll probably provide more possibilities in the “boxshop” area of the site, which we are going to add soon, but at the moment a third-party shape is the only solution.

                  • Lock or Save Camera/Scene

                    Would like to be able to lock or save the scene. There are times when I need to lock in how I view a particular scene and repeat it for other products.

                    • Option to Spin Object at Custom Speeds for External Video Recording of Object

                      Having the object spin at custom speeds allows for external video recorders, such as Camtasia and Screenflow, to record the entirety of the object. The background could be edited out with green screen effects and be highly useful to put in videos. I haven't seen any other software do this.

                        There will be an option to render spinning objects using the built-in renderers.

                        The approach you suggest doesn’t guarantee smooth rotation, and the draft rendering used for real-time preview can’t provide a good picture quality.

                        • Comparing Boxshot to BoxShor 3D - I find it more difficult

                          I've been working with BoxShot comparing it with the 3D version and find it more difficult. The user interface is not user friendly. I find the grid (hough you can disable it) unnecessary and find no use for it. I also find that you have made some coding changes that prevent the use from viewing edits.
                          I have an embedded graphics card that works just fine with Boxshot 3D, but with the upgrade I’m told that there is a bug with Intel that you have reported. If 3D works just fine, perhaps it’s not an Intel “bug” but poor coding…

                          • Barcode: open/load saved barcodes

                            It would be very useful if i could load a saved barcode to change it.
                            I have to create barcodes with almost identical numbers (ISBN) and so i could have a template and could change it and save it.

                            • Add file suffixes

                              Please add appropriate file suffixes when saving renders as well as native files. Files without suffixes are haphazard and can easily be either lost or fail to open properly. Suffix-less files names are a thing of the 90s and shouldn't happen any longer.

                                • UI Mapping. Please test the Paper Bag.

                                  I am placing 6"x 6" 72dpi rgb.png as Texture on the Face of the paper bag, yet the image does not place properly. It seems to centre the image and only show me portions of the image as similarly to the proportions that the paper bag 3D model started at. I have tried importing smaller size images, I have tried adjusting the offset, even tried fitting model to the images size. Nothing works. Always get only 1/3 my image to show. Fit mapping to Object or mesh don't do anything to help and Mapping Mode does nothing to help either.…

                                        I like to use the Foil Effect and the UV-Spot Effect in HTML WebGL Format. This Format is very cool tho present a Product to customers.

                                        • lower the price of updates for old customers

                                          Hi !
                                          Just wanna say how much disappointed I am to know that the last version of boxshot is a €70+ when I have spent 249 USD a year ago.

                                            This is the price of the new features we keep adding. You are not forced to use the latest version, if you don’t like to pay – it is not a subscription. You pay if you like, or keep using the latest version that supports your license.
