  1. Would love to have Displacement Maps

    Would love the addition of Displacement maps so we can get some added details out of certain models. Would add a lot of realism for an otherwise flat world of extras beside normals.

  2. Integrate with Substance Painter from Dimension

    Since acquiring Substance, it would be awesome to have the ability to edit your current model in substance then bring it back into dimension to set it up in your scene and render it.

  3. Open Files instead of Import

    When I go to File, Open, The only optional file types are .asd or *.dn. I am trying to open a Sketchup 2019 file as per attached.

    Unfortunately we don’t allow ‘open’ for any 3D model formats, only to open existing .dn saved scenes. Instead, create a new document, then use File > Import to import .fbx, .skp, stl, and .obj files.

    We’ll be adding “import” files to “open” soon!

  4. Add depth to decals

  5. Switching Modes from Render to Design forgets selected render views...

    Render Settings: Keep the "most recent" views selected when switching back to the Design tab. Currently, going back to Design resets this selection list every time to Current View, and I am constantly forgetting to re-check everything before hitting render.

  6. Update shared 3D scene without changing its link

    When I first share a model using the new Publish 3D Scene, I get a link I can send to my clients, that's great. If I later alter the models/cameras/decals/etc and publish it again, the original scene file in Creative Cloud is updated, that also great because it means there won't be dozens of duplicates for every alteration I make.

    What's not so great is that every time I do publish I'm given a new link, meaning I always need to send my clients a new link for every revision. I'd like to be able to update the published scene…

  7. Support for PSD layer mask

    Hello, i'm trying to place a psd file with a layer mask into Dimension to create realistic shadow effects for this cut out image/object. When i place the psd on a plane (as image carrier) in Dimension, the alpha channel, i.e. the black part of the mask, is not transparent but rendered in a grey color, thus the whole plane casts a shadow, not just the mask. This functionality appears to be essential and easy to implement ?

  13. Save Custom Materials

    After editing a material or adding textures to create my own it would be great to save the material for reuse in other projects.

  15. 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.

    Hey all, just wanted to give a little update on Animation for Dimension. We believe animation is an important part of working with 3D and do plan to include animation features in the future, however it will not be for 2019. Likely this will start in 2020 but I’ll update as we get closer!

  18. Import Solidworks 3D File Formats

    In my company, product designers usually render from Solidworks, and we have to wait for product samples to complete ad photography.

    I was hoping Felix could cut out the middle man, but today I found out that Felix supports no file types Solidworks can export. It kind of defeats the purpose of the program for my role.

    If we could support any of these file types (obviously excluding PS, PDF's, and JPEGS). We want this specifically to take prototype models to photography level.

  19. 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.

  20. Render Pause Button

    I could see it being beneficial to have a pause button on the rendering process.
