  1. Apply Textures to existing UV Space

    When I am importing a model that I previously created in C4D, the textures applied in Dimension do not inherit the UV Mapping that is already present. So a texture being applied to a cylinder with a slight inclination results in the texture wrapping to an incorrect ratio, resulting in what can be seen in the attached image. Image of original C4D model with UV Mapping is attached

      If you apply a graphic as a separate layer it uses a floating ‘decal’ projection. If you want to apply a texture to the original UVs you currently need to double click on the model to select the material then apply the texture to the base color.

      In the future graphic layers will have a fill mode that can be used to apply to the entire model. This is planned for our next release in 2019.

        Hi!
        Thanks for the suggestion!
        Dimension 2.0 has the option to hide/unhide all scene objects, including decals.
        The way to do this is, go to the scene panel, hover over the decal name that you want to hide, and click on the visibility icon to hide and unhide the layer.
        Let us know what you think!

        Cheers,
        Srujani

            • 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

                          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.

                          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.

                                    • A short pop-up by completing render process

                                      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?
