Hello Silvia,

Boxshot reads almost any format you may want to use for the artwork. This includes PDF, AI and PSD so if you make your art in Adobe products, I would recommend to use their formats directly.

As for the rendering, this depends on your needs. If you need a simple image for web, PNG is probably the best choice: it is common, simple and support transparency.

If you need images for print or if color profiles are essential for you - consider export to PSD or EXR formats. Both are HDR, floating-point, linear formats providing data exactly as they come out of the renderer. You can then convert them to the CMYK or RGB profile of your choice. Both support transparency, as well.

Hope this helps.
