It would be great if Dimension CC count notify my phone when a render is finished. with like a txt or an email or something....7 votes
Thank you for the suggestion, very interesting! It does pop up an OS notification, but you’d prefer something mobile as you may not be there at your workstation, correct?
All objects on a canvas are rendered as one PSD layer only. This is not good, pardon me, but it can be annoying to work with the selection tool for each and every object and detail when wanting to change sth in Photoshop.
(I noticed there was this topic already, yet closed for insuffucient support, I can hardly imagine that there are only two people requesting it.)7 votes
I think that one was closed because there was no description confirming that it was talking about layers in the PSD render. Your thoughts are much clearer! :)
This is something we’ve heard frequently actually and we are investigating.
Option to set bit (8, 16, 32) would be good. Right now only option 32 bit is quite overkill. Rendering time is way too long.7 votes
Thanks for the suggestion!
Option to export background panorama created from flat image. It is visible now is Environment Light slot (see attachment).
Based on documentation, Dimension uses Content Aware Tool known from Photoshop. It could be impemented in Photoshop as filter as well, as it is very useful feature for every designer working in 3D environment.6 votes
I would like to see the render progression in the taskbar in Windows10.
Kind of like in Premiere Pro.6 votes
Have render preview SETTINGS, the live render times are really bad, especially on heavier materials such as glass.
If there could be like most 3D programs a setting for render previews like wireframes, or quarter and so on, this will speed up the updating proccess.
Thanks you6 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! We plan on enhancing the canvas and render preview views this year and will definitely be exploring.
When you're happy with your render but want to make a small alteration to the perspective (for example), you should be able to render straight to file, without a preview. To speed things up. This feature is common in 3D software.6 votes
Have the ability to choose a 3rd party tenderer such as Lux renderer.6 votes
Great suggestion – any particular reason why you would want to use Lux or your specific 3rd party renderer?
Good job Adobe for the GPU Render. My rendering went from 30 hours to 4 hours. Now, let's incorporate 3rd Party Plug-ins such as Octane and Redshift5 votes
My 5 year old Mac has been rendering for two hours and has done only 4% of a 2000 x 1200 pixels image with no more than 4 objects. Maybe an overview would be nice, showing supported machines with examples of render time, based on a simple lay-out in comparising with a complex lay-out5 votes
This is a really interesting suggestion and something we’ve been considering. There are so many combinations of hardware that it’s hard to do a general overview. However, we are adding information about what types of things impact render times. The primary things are:
Also, effects like reflections or lots of objects bouncing light off each other, etc. There will definitely be more as we expand our features.
It would be really nice to be able to use a pinch-zoom feature on my mouse pad, much like I can in Illustrator and like-products.5 votes
I like to see a sample level indicator on the render & render preview so progress can be checked on. Also the ability to have the render stop at a specific sample level.5 votes
Thanks for the suggestion. We’re definitely looking at exposing some of the other render settings such as time, quality or sample levels.
Would like to be able to script adding objects to a preset scene - maybe pass a file for the preset scene and a file for the item(s) to import then get a render out. Ideally this would work without launching the GUI so that batches of exports can be created automatically.
The use case for this is users online designing a product (in this case a guitar) by choosing a bunch of options, then we'd like to produce a high quality render at some point after, from their design.5 votes
This would be really nice to have the ability to turn the workstation to the sleep mode after the rendering process is done.4 votes
Thanks for the idea! This is may be possible, but not something we’re currently planning on doing.
It might be interesting compatibility with HDR Light Studio to manage and generate a set of more professional lights.4 votes
OK so this is more than a bit subtle, but can you see a triangular area where the grain is larger and the decal is broken up?
I'm sure this has something to do with exporting it from solidworks, but wondering if there's a way to fix it in dimensions?
I'd also like to understand the issue more, to avoid it in future.3 votes
it would be great to have a progress bar for preview render for slow machines.3 votes
I would like there to be stroke options on edges where faces meet. Sometimes there isn't enough edge definition in renders, and an outline of every face would be a welcome addition. This could be a separate layer in the rendered .psd so we could control how strong the strokes would be.3 votes
It would be greate, when Dimension got a Texture Baking rendering option for export to realtime 3D authoring-tools like Aero, or Apple Quick Look etc..3 votes
When many windows are open and rendering is happening to a file in the background it is too easy to interrupt the render by double clicking on a .dn file. Can you give an alert box to prevent interrupting the render in progress?3 votes
Thank you for this observation, and I’m sorry for the render progresses you might have lost due to clicking on a Dn file.
We will try to make sure there is a warning to let you know whenever a render might be interrupted. Thanks for the great feedback and let me know if you have any other issues!
