  1. Scene Panel Sorting & Filtering

    Under 'scenes', want way of making the menu alphabetical ,for sure, but also perhaps date modified. Sometimes there are too many and it's very boring looking for things which because you're zoomed in, you don't want to find by looking at the object then clicking.

  2. Replace Materials from Sketchup

    I import Sketchup Scenes and would like a easy overview of my allready existing materials that I can replace quickly with the dimension materials. At the moment I have to pull in every material on every face which is quite a pain if you have for example a hundred chairs.

  3. Window title to include filename

    The title is just a static "Adobe Dimension"

    This makes using automatic time tracking software impossible to decipher what file was being worked on.

    Should be an easy addition

  4. Object Variations

    It would be awesome to be able to create multiple “product configurations” that can be setup for easy rendering. For example, take a product packaging scene that needs many different textures for multiple product label versions/locales/languages/etc. Currently, each variation must be rendered out by hand individually, and there is no way to batch anything at the moment.

    In this scenario, each camera "render view" would still be the same, but the textures, materials, models, environment, etc. could all change.

    Take a look how Onshape and Keyshot handle their configurations. Onshape's configurations, though a CAD package, is incredibly powerful!

  5. Targa import

    Targa is a very common format for texture maps. You can open them in PS and convert to PNG/JPEG but it would be nice to have them work with Dimenion right away.

  6. Select material and cut-paste a new geometry

    I would LOVE to be able to make a selection from a material's placement and then copy paste the geometry as a new object.

    I happen to find that going from geometry to material back and forth is a bit tedious, So I'd rather "ungroup" my geometry and make it easier to change.

    Having a right click option on a placed material to "make a selection from the material's placement" (= which means I already once on this project made that selection with the magic wand), or, second option "make a new object from the material's placement selection, and cut…

    This should be very feasible. We do allow you (as of Dimension 2.2) to copy/paste selections of geometry into new objects. Right now the selection method is using Magic Wand, so if your material application is the same as a magic wand selection then you could do this today.

    For a future enhancement we can add a way to select the polygons a material is assigned to.

  7. Share with password

    Hello I would like to share my designs with others so that they need to have a passwork to access the work.

  8. Allow user to put the "Tool options" back in the "view control bar" above the canvas, please.

    Dimension used to have the "Tool options" in a "view control bar" above the canvas. With an update, the "Tool options" was moved to a pop-out window attached to the toolbar.

    PLEASE make an option for users to move the "Tool options" back to the "view control bar".

    Thanks for the suggestion here! Should be pretty easy to do. I’m curious would you primarily be selecting different objects of different shapes and sizes or primarily duplicated similar objects?

    If the object has multiple parts would you want us to put the decal on all selected parts?

  10. Camera Lens options

    I'm doing renders and wanting to emulate a 50mm Canon FD lens that I have in my kit. It occurred to me that Lightroom has all of the details on every one of these lenses AND the distortion/vignetting that those lenses apply to the image.

    Proposal:

    Add lens options to the camera feature to enable us to replicate existing lenses. This would include the option of adding lens distortions (this is especially valuable in renders with high-dof where rendered objects are out of focus and near the edge of the frame where barrel distortion would change how the focus appears) …

  11. Don't allow file open to Interrupt render

    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?

    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!

  12. Faster Loading/Saving with Textures

    I appreciate the WYSIWYG approach, but it should not take so long to save a simple scene when it takes less time for other 3D environments to save files with similar workloads.

    Have a dedicated Adobe Stock folder installed on the machine for 3D assets for the program to reference to avoid such massive loading times (or taking up space in temp storage).

    I'm not sure if loading the textures when you open the file would contribute to the load or save times, but I'd put an option to disable it just in case. Create a separate shader view if…

  13. Double-click the Zoom tool in the toolbox.

    Display images at 100% -Double-click the Zoom tool in the toolbox.
    Fit an image to the screen -Double-click the Hand tool in the toolbox.

    These options can be very useful when we are changing canvas size and want to center canvas

  14. Is there any way to import your own custom color library?

    I have a custom color library that I've created and I want to use it in combination with the materials Dimension provides. It would be great if I could choose a material and then just drag and drop my own colors on top of the material.

    Hi!
    Thanks so much for the suggestion. We are very interested in supporting color in Dimension.
    Could you tell us more about your workflow? Where do you usually get your color swatches? Do you use ASE files or cloud libraries or something else?

  15. Height Map Input

    We already have Normal Map, Roughness, and Metallic. The addition of a Height Map input would be great to add more detail and make more realistic / defined materials. With just the Normal Map input it feels restricting on the level of detail for material textures.

    For applying to a material channel, you can double click the material to edit it, open the image for the channel (such as color, roughness) then use the file browser folder icon to browse for an image. We can certainly find a way for this to be more upleveled!

  17. Facebook 3D photos - PLEASE!

    I do a lot of product photos, would love to be able to generate what is needed to make the new Facebook 3D photos.

  19. Assets Used Panel

    This may already exist but it would be nice to have a section that has which lighting and other options (such as material) has been chosen.

    For when you can't remember what you have chosen!

  20. Render transparent PNG's

    Hi Guys,

    I used to be able to export a model with a transparent background by going into design mode, going into environment settings and unchecking the background layer. But that does not seem to be the case anymore.
    Another thread contained a message from about 8 days ago that has a similar problem: https://feedback.adobedimension.com/forums/552559-adobe-dimension-feature-requests/suggestions/17420401-final-render-transparency .
    The model now exports with a background, irrespective of the settings that I give it.

    Hoping to hear from you soon, and thank you for a great product.
