    • Allow the box panels in "Materials" palette (top, front, left, etc.) to be double-clicked to open the file/image directory to choose images

      Currently, images can be chosen using the ellipses symbol under "Parameters." This is useful as it shows the name of the image/texture linked to the associated box panel. However, if the actual panel name (front, left, top, etc.) in the Materials section can be double-clicked to execute the same function as the ellipses (open the Finder to browse images), it would be a tremendous help as well.

          • Add a directional light model.

              • Shoebox Shape for Boxshot

                I think a shoebox that is a great idea for you guys (boxshot) make a shape like shoebox, where we can put the dimension of the lid, and the others dimensions.

                For me, it'll help a lot. I hope you can do it, and seems easy to do.

                P.S.: I am now trying the free version, I think there is no shape like shoebox, in the highers versions like ultimate.

                • Make a few fixes to the shadow rendering output on transparent background

                  A few issues here:

                  If you render an image with ambient lighting and a background image, the multiplication of the lighting gets applied to the floor on top of the background image. This seems strange to me.

                  However, if you remove the background image in order to just render the object with transparent drop shadows, the shadows on the floor disappear, and any ambient lighting settings appear as png haze.

                  What is strange, is that skylight effect shading still works - just not shadows cast from light objects. In other words, I was trying a test comp with this NASA…

                  • Web plugin

                    It could be interesting to provide the possibility to embed a realtime online rendering for websites: a customer add a picture for a book cover and can see in realtime the 3D of the book with his graphic design

                      • Make the software save the project before doing a full-quality render

                        When doing full quality renders, the cancellation of the rendering process does not always stop nicely - sometimes the program crashes completely depending on the complexity. I usually remember to save the project before rendering, but it should automatically save it just in case something goes wrong.

                          • Add the specular settings you mention in the documentation

                            The docs says there is an option to adjust the specular level on objects but the parameter doesn't appear in any of the menus.

                            There is also no description of the light shape and specifically how the attenuation parameters work.

                                    • add foldlines with standing brochures

                                      When making a brochure with 3 or more panels in roll fold, the inner panels are smaller than the outer. At the moment, all panels are of equal width. I 'd like to adjust the width of each side.
