  1. Separate Photoshop Shadow Layer

    When rendering to a layered Photoshop file, it would be extremely helpful to have the Object on one layer and the Cast Shadow on a separate layer. This will allow a designer the ability to manipulate shading and integrate it better into the picture. I have worked in 3D for many years (multiple programs) and this separate layered technique is one of the most used by artists and extremely powerful.

    Hi everyone. I wanted to let you know we do plan to add more layers to the .psd output including shadow/light passes, reflection and some other helpful bits. I’ll keep you updated as we get closer on this one.

  2. Render Round Corners

    I could be valuable to add "Round Corners" feature to the render engine.
    If it really Vray under Felix, I guess that this feature already exist, and it could be cool to expose it in Felix.

    The goal is to give more realism to basic shapes (lighter models) and to go faster...

    Thanks for the suggestion! Can I ask for a bit more detail? Would you want to define an area of the screen and have that keep rendering even if you change your camera? Or just like a quick “Show me this area” then it goes away?

  4. Cloud Rendering

    option to process final renders in the 'cloud', render images on external servers not on local machine. this would be a dream for all those not carrying around monster laptops or able to waste hours watching pixels grow.

    Hello all! I wanted to make a quick update on Cloud Render! This is still in the free beta period, but with our latest release (Dimension 2.3, which went live today July 16th), we’ve increased the size limit from 2000×2000 pixels to 4000×4000 pixels. Enjoy the higher resolution renders!

  5. Isometric view / render / setting

    I would really love to be able to set up an isometric view :) (with and withouth dept of field) <3

  6. Background Rendering

    Ideally I would like to be able to work and render at the same time. So consider have a separate tab or window for the render. This way I can render high quality in the background, while working on a new model, scene, etc in the foreground.

  7. Export decal as separate layer

    HI! Great start on this application, could be amazing.
    Right off the bat, it's imperative to be able to export a label or decal separate from the object it's on. Would be a great feature - not so usable until thats there. Thanks!

  8. Export for VR

    It would be nice to be able to do rapid prototyping integration for VR testing of 3D spaces before going to Unity 3D to build. Could add as an output option to render equirectangular pngs. Then you could plug in the phone similar to XD prototyping to view on device and/or in a cardboard viewer.

  10. Advanced Render Quality Settings

    A little more technical info like samples, render ETA etc. instead of just high/med/low could be helpful for the more informed. Also, the ability to disable choose arbitrary render resolution from the render tab is more convenient IMO instead of having to change it every time from the camera panel.

  11. Custom Render layers

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to set up render layers with alpha channel for each Model, model sub component and material. This makes post work in PS much quicker and precise. Re-rendering also is much quicker if a layer can be swapped out - rather than a full re-render of the scene.

  13. Export Videos

    Once there is animation support it would be great to export in video.

  14. Render Time Limit

    It would be useful to set a period of time for the render to use. Combined with my earlier idea, a render queue, you would be able to get a set number of renders at a set time. Very useful in the creative world where deadlines are frequent and always closing in.

    I've added a quick scene being rendered on a MacBook Pro (Late 2013 top spec, i7 quadcore 2,6, 16GB ram, GT750M 2GB), medium quality, 1024x768, with a snapshot taken at 30 minutes. It's still going, about 40 minutes now, not much difference in quality, so a way to…

  15. Decals as smart objects when rendering to PSD files.

    One of my client has multiple products with the same bottle but different labels. I'm not sure if this is possible, but it would be nice to explore having the decal of a rendered model become its own smart object when rendering to a PSD file. Switching the image in the smart object out for each new product as opposed to rendering the same products over and over with a different label would be a real time saver.

    Thanks for the suggestion! I’d love to know here if rendering was faster would you prefer smart objects in Dimension so you can place the new graphics in 3D? The reason I ask is mostly because if we bake the materials and lighting down to 2D there’s a bit more limitation on what you could do with the PS smart object. For example replacing the packaging label wouldn’t update to show in reflections or refractions in the rest of the scene. Is that an okay limitation?

  16. Glow effect, Light radiance

    perhaps when rendering glowing objects, (at a high setting) if there could be some light effects shinning off the surface of the glow? currently it just renders a start white edge and casts light over near by surfaces. it would look nicer if the object look closer to light, not just a solid color.

  17. Ambient Occlusion

    Please add two sliders for ambient occlusion, both size and intensity. The ability to add this to renderings of exterior building facades will make the renderings "pop".

  18. render to EXR - render passes

    It would very good to have the option to render to EXR with multiple passes. Compositing in this way gives a great deal of flexibility in post over the reflections, color, light /shadows, specularity, transparency..

    It would also be very interesting to see the render output directly linked to Photoshop, premiere/ aftereffects.

    In other applications rendering is not linked to the post processing tools - which makes it much slower to update layers and much less likely that re-rendering or additional changes will happen in the retracing tool.
