  3. Vehicle Models

    Vehicles: Would be fantastic if you could make car models available for vehicle wraps. Or at least the option to import blueprints/renderings of them.

  4. Step and Repeat (Clone/Array)

    It would be very usefull if designers could "step and repeat" objects in 3 dimensions to create a "store" visualisation effect. Important issue is that only one object can be modified. If the "master" object is changed, all objects in the "step and repeat" group should be automatically updated.

  5. Place Objects on Background Walls/Planes

    It would be awesome to have an option to delve deeper into the raster background image—say of an office or room—by being able to place models on the wall with the shadows/lighting interacting as it would hanging/leaning there.

  6. Export for ARKit

    HI,

    Sure it is on the radar, but exporting for Apple's ARKit would be a good move.

  7. Adding texture or images, like wood to the grounds plane.

    Adding an option to the grounds plane property where you can add textures like wood or cement onto the grounds plane. It's helpful when rendering something that needs a surface as a background. And being able to change angles and still make the object look like its sitting on the same surface.

  8. Ambient Occlusion

    Please add two sliders for ambient occlusion, both size and intensity. The ability to add this to renderings of exterior building facades will make the renderings "pop".

  9. Support for Gradients in Color Fields

    It would be interesting to be able to degrade (gradient) in the background instead of a single color!

    I'd like to be able to preview the UV Maps of the object and do some changes to the UV map.

  12. Import new object to same X,Y,Z orientation as current selection

    Here is the proposed workflow:
    1. Select an object in Dimension that you've placed
    2. Go up to File>import> 3D Object and click to start the import process
    3. Imported object is set at the exact coordinates of the previously selected object, and is now the selected object in your scene.
    4.You can now make minor X,Y,Z location changes to the new object in order to have it match your vision of the composition.

    Current process
    1. write down all of the coordinates for your currently selected object.
    2. Go up to File>import> 3D Object and click to start the…

    Thanks for the suggestion! Very interesting. I’m curious what the core thing you’re trying to do is, though.

    Do you want it to import to the same location so that it’s visible because your camera is looking one way and it’s importing behind you? Or is it more about composition, like you’re placing it near that object so want to start there?

    Currently we always import objects to the origin of the scene (0,0,0) because different objects might be broken into pieces but intended to align that way. Some other options could be:
    - Import to selection as you described above
    - Import to center of current view
    - Not at import but have additional controls for “move to this object” or “center to my view” type of functionality.

    Lots possible here, and none of it is particularly hard, so more understanding the why you want this.

  13. Shadow mat material to catch shadows (or support for additional ground planes)

    I do a lot of custom sign design (room sponsorships, donor walls, etc), and produce 3D renderings of them composited into reference photos I take of where the sign will be installed.

    The quality of materials and rendering in Adobe Dimension really has me intrigued, but I need a way to place the 3D model vertically and catch the rendered shadow as if it was set against a wall.

    In other software, I create a plane with a shadow mat material to catch the shadow, which is then rendered directly on top of the reference photo set as a background…

  14. Add scripting support

  15. Better Selection Tools (Marquee, Lasso, Paint Select)

    Specifically selecting just parts of the model to be able to have different textures or cut out part of the model perhaps. See attached for an idea of what might be accomplished with this. Please give me feedback on if this is already a feature. Thank you.

    Great suggestion! We definitely want to allow for much more customized selections in the future. You said you’d like to cut out part of the model as well, can you say more about what you mean? Do you want to ‘cut it out’ as a new model?

  16. 3D Mouse support

    I have a SpaceNavigator from 3Dconnexion and I'd like to use it for camera movement

  17. 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) …

  19. Multiple monitor support

    When using multiple monitors, i would like to move my pallets to a second monitor.. it seems they are locked into the single view mode. I would especially like to see the preview window moved off of my art-board. some people utilize more than one monitor and would like to see their designs in full screen.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone! We (Adobe as a whole) are considering the next generation of User Interfaces, so this is a discussion that is being taken very seriously across the company. I’d love specific examples of the things you like to dock/undock and why.

  20. Cut Tool to Split Models

    There needs to be a way to cut or splice the model to create points that can be stretched, rotated or moved from the object separate from the rest of it.
