    • Snapshot Name Automatically Slugged Into "Job Name" Field

      It would be great if all of your Snapshots would automatically slug their name into the "Job Name" field in the Render Settings Window under Job Parameters. This would help streamline the naming process with larger jobs and the Render Queue. It would also be helpful if the Job Folder Names (and the rendered file/image name) would match the Job Name that was assigned in the Render Settings window.

        • Flat spine Hardcover book together with dustjacket

          Hi, please, can you correct the dustjacket rendering? If I choose the hardcover book with the flat spine, the dustjacket still has the rounded spine.

              • Add a "Hang Hole" feature to Tagged Box model

                The Tagged Box model is a godsend for realistic product package rendering, and an excellent mockup resource for package designers like myself. Now, if you were to add customizable and positionable "hang holes" that "punch out" in the final rendering, that would be icing on the cake and push the realism to another level.

                You could begin with two hang hole shapes that are generally seen in retail environments: 1) the "submarine" or "sombrero" shape (as I've seen it called) and 2) the triangular, rounded-corner hang hole shape. An option to import one's own hang hole shape would also be…

                  • 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.

                            • 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…

                                    • 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.
