It comes with an OpenGL interactive viewer ( and some examples ) to see the final result.

Btw, im looking for some model examples ( like the Pablo Hoyos one ) to test the application and/or to include it on it ( send me an email to if interested pls! )

Modo has a built-in feature for doing exactly that. The high-poly model doesn't even have to have a UV map, just the low-poly model you're baking the normal map onto. I believe it was "map from background object" or something like that. I love Modo
