  1. USD import support?

    Pixar has open sourced their "Universal Scene Description" file format (www.openusd.org) that is getting a lot of support in the VFX world. Is there any thought of supporting that format, at least for import?

  2. parallax normal map

    Normal map lacks a setting that is expected for bump type textures. The intensity and parallax need to be adjustable to get a correct looking relief or embossing look with a texture.

  4. Adding multiple materials to different decal layers

    It would be good to add different materials to different layers for example can you use the decal layer as an alpha channel to change the base material ie. metallic foil logo (textured) on a Matt base material

  5. Animation

    I hoping for Animation in Dimension this year! I've seen where it's planned but no updates from 2019. It would be nice to stay within the Adobe environment when animating 3D across PS-AE and hopefully DM.

  6. wireframe

    Would be nice to simply have a material called "wireframe" to be able to render objects just in a wireframe view.

  7. Triangle shape similar to the "plane" in basic shapes

    In the basic shapes toolkit, there should be a triangle shape similar to the "plane" (square) but a triangle that you can adjust lengths ofe

  9. Request - Bulk materal import

    I'd love to be able to import ALL my Substance Painter sbsar files into the Dimension database so they will show up in the UI. I see we can add one at a time to an object. Thats not what I want though. I want my materials in the UI.

  10. Animation

    What about Animation. Even simple will do for now. My department uses Dimension a lot. It has come in handy with multiple projects. Please Do not forget about this software. We love the simplicity of using it.

  11. Base Color Bug

    Applying a base color to a shape applies the color to multiple shapes instead of only the selected one. These extra shapes are not grouped or selected with the single shape whose color I wish to change.

    You can view a video of this here:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/v3xfn6j7dpyu53b/Screen%20Recording%202021-01-08%20at%202.51.16%20PM.mov?dl=0

    Or you can view the attached file.

    Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter!

  12. Light setting / position per Camera View

    It would be great to save a light setting for every camera angle. For example I created a front view set the lights and after switching to a side view some lights are reflecting way to bright on the product. So I had to render all front views, adjusting the lights and render all side views. 5 times for every angle.

    I wish to group lights and link them to camera view "front", the create a new light group and link it to "side" and so far :)

  13. browse by material

    By Design, you are able to browse a scene by geometry,

    It could be useful to be able to browse by material as well.

    The best could also to have in replacement of the "content" panel not only starter content (models, materials, lights, environments) but also in a separate set the actual assets of the current scene.

    Many Thanks

  14. Opening problems

    I have problems with this program, it is the first time in my life that I downloaded it and when I open it, this appears but I cannot click anything, it seems as if it were an image or something like that. They also see the upper part where the pointer is on the "adobe dimension" tab next to the apple, I only see the option "Quit". The version of the program is 3.4, I already closed it and reopened it many times, and even uninstalled and reinstalled it, I still have the same problem.

    Someone happened or just me?

  15. Add opacity option to items

    In Photoshop, when making a composite I find it helpful to reduce the opacity of an "incoming" object in order to line it up with the rest of the composition.
    That would be helpful in Dimension too, rather than clicking visibility on and off to line things up.
    Love the program!

  19. material list

    Hi,

    Could it be possible to edit the scene based on Materials instead of Geometry?
    I have a complex scene/object but with a few materials.
    It could be easier to have a "scene tree" based on Materials or a ressource finder based on what is in the scene beside, statring ressources, libraries, Adobe Stock, etc...
    Many Thanks

  20. Render export suggestion

    When I work on branding assets in Dimension, I found that I really miss one feature (there would be extremely helpful when creating mock-ups):

    PSD render exports to have a separate layer as a smart object of a design layer (for example wine bottle label) and you will have an editable layer directly in Photoshop. I am sure that would be possible... Who else would like that feature?
