This is so cool - worrying about things like performance, stability, and a compelling feature set was always such a pain anyway...  now programmers can stop wasting time on such trivia!

I've always thought these kind of things were pretty silly, especially for products that don't even have physical boxes... but at least (from the shot above ;) ), this one seems to get perspective right.

What would happen if one of your customers demanded that the box be included?

Anyone thinking of buying one should check out Cover Commander. The difference is totally unbelievable.

You can choose from boxes, books, DVD cases, screenshots...here's Mouser's Screenshot Captor:

Looks beautiful, Nighted.  At $69 it's damn expensive though.
Maybe we can get a discount..

I'd buy it with a steep ( > 50% ) discount. It does look amazing and the images it produces are head and shoulders above the others.

Aren´t real 3D Renderers better in visual quality, features than such simple boxshot makers? Where´s the big advantage of such specialized software? With Real3D V4, Truespace 3 and Blender you can get killer-quality for free.

Crush: simplicity, I bet. And the fact that quality will be just fine, without the need for (relatively) heavy software like blender.

I tried the Bosseye 3D but was very disappointed with the picture's (lack of-) quality. So far I am for Quickbox!
