One of the issues with the CD bonus pack is that the default lighting on the CD case is sub-optimal. This means that when you load it, it appears in 3D Box Shot Pro looking like this:
Fortunately, it is relatively simple to adjust the material values and lighting in 3D Box Shot Pro in order to dramatically improve the visual quality of any external models you load into the Program.
