A customer’s first interaction with a product is dramatically influenced by the visual impact it has on them. The appearance of said item could also encourage or deter them from purchasing it, and this is reason enough to pay considerable attention to everything related to the packaging of a product if you want to stand out from the crowd on the market.
eCover Engineer is a lightweight piece of software designed to come to your aid if you want to design covers for ebooks, software boxes, and any other products with just a few clicks while also viewing the final results in 3D mode.
First of all, a few words about the program’s setup are in order. eCover Engineer installs in just a couple of seconds, and once it starts running, you can see an approachable GUI you should quickly figure out.
The 3D cover creator sport a well-balanced feature set, and among its resources, you can also find various templates that should work as a starting point for your projects.
As such, you first need to select the type of product you want to create a cover for. Your options are quite varied and include a standard, thin, wide, or customizable box, a book, a notebook, magazine, DC or DVD case, business card, and much more.
Once you do that, you may start exploring the six tabs placed in the top-right corner. It is there that you can select the most suitable profile and specify whether you want to include a box only or combine it with a reflection, a floor, with a transparent background or a solid color or come up with your own customizations.
Needless to say, your box’s front, side, and top can be customized according to your needs, using images included in the program’s library or your own database. Aside from that, adjusting the cover position is possible, so rotating and lifting it should raise no difficulties, as is the case of tinkering with the visibility and other floor options.
Making sure the light source compliments your cover is also essential, and eCover Engineer allows you to take care of that too.
