Businesses often need to render 3D images for use in promotional materials, presentations, and more. For those looking for a well-designed, professional-looking program to create them with, Boxshot for Mac performs its functions well and has a number of useful templates.
Boxshot for Mac offers a free trial version, which leaves a watermark on all output images. The full version requires $49 to unlock. Download and installation completed quickly. During setup, the program gives the user the option to purchase the full version, but outside of this, the process completes without user interaction. The program, itself, does not have any instructions, which is a problem since the interface is difficult to interpret for those without experience using design software. Tutorials are available through the developer's Web site, as is technical support. The application, itself, is very well designed with good detail on the menus. Users can select from a generous number of templates for rendering, including cans, books, and coffee mugs, among others. Users can select a template and view any side to add details and text. The processing and execution all completed quickly, which is a great advantage for a fairly complicated program. The output images rendered well and look similar to real-life objects.
For those in need of a rendering program, Boxshot for Mac performs well and has a number of useful options.
