Here, you can adjust the cover’s 3D properties such as scaling, camera’s and model’s position and rotation, light direction, shadow’s and reflection’s strength and more.
The following section describes what each setting do and how you can take the full advantage of them.
You can also adjust its strength and fuzziness (spread) by moving the sliders or entering a numerical value into the textbox.
You may further adjust the reflection properties to suit your design needs. Just play with the sliders and see the resulting effect.
Alternatively, to adjust the axis propotionately, check the "Lock the axis together". This will lock the sliders together as you move just one of them.
This settings move the camera around the cover model vertically, horizontally or closer/further away. The cover model is not actually changing position nor rotating but moving the camera makes it appears that it is.
Changing the Camera Position does not change the shadows or reflection directions since the cover model remains stationary and the lighting directions unchanged.
Moving the camera itself gives you another option to present your cover in the best prespective possible.
The Shadow and Reflection directions will change according to where the model is repositioned.
Model Rotation & Camera Rotation
The difference between Model Rotation and Camera Rotation is, when you use Model Rotation, the shadows position also changed because the model itself is rotating. On the other hand, when Camera Rotation is used, the shadow position is unchanged relative to the model because the model itself remains stationary.
Some cover models support Actions which allow you to further customize your cover such as having an opened/closed cover, curvy ebook effect and so on. The options available may differ from model to model.
You can learn more about Model Actions here.
You can also choose the save with transparent or white background when saving in PNG or GIF format.
