Although this program offers a decent set of tools for designing 3D covers for a variety of media sources, its unintuitive interface and steep learning curve temper our enthusiasm. Designing a CD, e-book, or DVD cover with eCover 3D is no simple task. Rather than first letting you select a template before adding an image, the application forces you to open an image, then apply it to a certain template, a procedure we found baffling even with the assistance of the help files. Once that process is complete, you can open your cover in the 3D environment before tweaking parameters for lighting, camera, scaling, and rotation. Unfortunately, the trial version places a large watermark over your case, which ruins the look of your printed covers. We did appreciate the available image-editing tools, which include those for color adjustment, resizing, adding effects, and drawing. This application certainly looks promising, but until it's easier to use, we can only suggest it to patient and experienced users.

What's new in this version:
Version 2.0 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
I had Vista and this software works great on it. Now, I have Windows 7 and it still works great. The DLL file is so easy to register and they show you how to do it step-by-step on the website. It took me all of 2 minutes to update the DLL file. You should not blame the software because it is Windows Vista and Windows 7 problem that they don't include the files.
I Even Looked Through My files for a while and i did something wicked and i saw that it was a coverflip. its a great system program. i even put it on my pretend mac. :) even i dont wanna see noobs download it/comment on this software. its alot of fun and makes me laugh. i like MAC OS X 1.1 leopard. its good software (as i said).
I have downloaded and sampled most of the ecover generators out there, this is the first program, I found, that offered versatile high quality templates, and not just in business and marketing. I have windows xp home, and this program worked for me without a problem. The software is extremely user friendly, and the company offers videos to get you going fast. I was very pleased with the final results of my cover.
