Realistic 3D print visualization

Studio is 3D software, made specifically for packaging artwork professionals; especially for the ones that use Adobe® Illustrator® extensively.

Studio is also a powerful communication tool. It lets you create exciting 3D visuals to show your client, ranging from PDF files with 3D content, to movies, a virtual pack shot or to a shopping shelf.

Design programs such as Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop cannot simulate the appearance of texture, relief, elevation, and gloss level. Studio Visualizer is a powerful simulation tool that brings the various visual elements of a design to life in virtual space

Render 3D packaging mock-ups

Esko’s virtual mock-up software comes with patented dynamic 3D print visualization. Render 3D packaging mock-ups with a wide range of substrates, printing and finishing effects in real-time.

The software simulates the printing and finishing operations one by one, in the correct order, and on the right substrate. So what you see doesn’t only look great, it’s also technically feasible.

Benefits of using Esko's packaging mock up software

  • Real-time rendering offers an unmatched level of reality.
  • Test innovative packaging and in-store branding materials like signage, POP, POS and SFDU displays.
  • The Studio Store Visualizer is built from the ground up for packaging design.
  • Integrates easily with the rest of Esko's packaging design software
  • Integration with Keyshot improves the appearance of physical goods such as plastics, liquids, metals and glass for realistic pack shots
