      • Queue Multiple Renders

        It would be great to have a way to queue up more than one render if you need more than one angle of a product (I do, often). This way you can set a computer to do all the renderings you need and not having to touch it until its done working.

          Happy Monday, October 15th, everyone! Today we released an update to Dimension CC – the 2.0 release! In this version you can now use your saved camera bookmarks during render time to queue up as many renders as you’d like and run them all together.

          You can see more about the release here:
          https://helpx.adobe.com/dimension/using/whats-new.html

          Here’s a video on the rendering updates in Dimension 2.0:

        • More Materials

          It would be really nice to have a much broader list of materials. I'm sure you're working on this.

          • Import Materials Option

            Currently you can download materials from Adobe Stock to desktop but there's no way to import it without going through CC Libraries.

            Adding a File > Import Materials option will allow for downloaded materials or materials created in other apps to be imported.

            • Change Render Output Size

              Cool program, but larger output files would be more useful. I would use these for compositing work in photoshop but at the current output size, it's kind of pointless

                • Selecting individual model pieces

                  This program is awesome. The only thing I need is the ability to import a complex models and be able to select each piece individually. If this can be achieved, please advise me how.
                  Thanks.

                    Yes, this is possible today. If you create a model with multiple parts then the .obj format will preserve those and they will be selectable in Dimension.

                    One note is that every 3D program exports to .obj differently so you may need to look up tutorials for your application to preserve parts when saving to .obj.

                  • Undo Camera Moves

                    When I hit control Z, it did not undo my camera move. Would be awesome to include camera moves as an undoable step.

                      You can undo and redo your camera movements, but it does use a different shortcut to prevent you from accidentally moving your camera when trying to undo an action.

                      The undo shortcuts are Function < and Function > or you can find them in the Edit menu.

                      Select areas with the Magic Wand Toll by "drawing" not just clicking.

                        • Render Objects Below the Ground Plane

                          I need to render objects that intersect the ground plane. I have an object that would be partially underground and when I composite it with an aligned background image there is no way to render anything that is below the ground plane

                            You can disable the ground plane in the environment properties. This will render it without shadows/reflections as if there was no ground. Please let me know if that fits your needs, or if not, then why?

                              It would be great to include stationary in the assests. Business cards, folders, letterheads, envalopes, ect.

                                I usually do something else while rendering a scene, so it would be great if you add a simple pop-up by completing a rendering process.

                                  Hello! When a render is complete you should get both an in-app and an OS level notification. However, notifications don’t hang around for too long, they just pop up for a second or two. Are you not seeing a notification when completing a render?

                                      Happy Monday, October 15th, everyone! Today we released an update to Dimension CC – the 2.0 release! This update includes…. multiple decals! I know it’s been a long time coming, so thank you for your patience.

                                      Just a note that the scene panel got some UI updates, so materials no longer show as part of the primary scene object list. Instead, click on the right-hand arrow next to the object to ‘dive’ down into it’s appearance section. Then you can see all of your graphics in a layer-based system for reordering!

                                      You can see more about the release here:
                                      https://helpx.adobe.com/dimension/using/whats-new.html

                                      Here’s a video on the updated materials as well:

                                      • Toggle tool movement relative to object or ground plane. (Transform Space)

                                        It would be good to toggle the movement controls so they act relative to either the selected object or the ground plane.

                                        Once an object has been tilted and placed it is hard to then move it perfectly horizontal to the ground plane, or rotate it to face a new direction. Currently you have to use a combination of x, y, z movements to zig-zag the object to the desired location.

                                        Unity uses a toggle to switch between these controls, the ground plane option resetting every time it's selected.

                                          This functionality is already available in Dimension. You can find it in the Tool Options (just above the canvas in the top-left) and the option is called Align to Scene. When that is toggled on it will realign your widgets for Move and Rotate to be aligned to the scene. We currently don’t allow world scaling to prevent object skewing.

                                          Maybe this already exists, but I have a camera position in Photoshop 3D that I would like to recreate exactly in Dimension. Is there a way to export camera positions from Photoshop to Dimension? Or even to be able to add the coordinates manually?

                                          Thanks!

                                            Yes, camera coordinates have been available in-app since our first Beta release.

                                            You can find them by selecting the Environment and scrolling down to the bottom of the properties panel to the area called camera perspective. Here you’ll find Field of View, Position, and Rotation values.
