  1. 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?

    • Copy/Paste images from other apps

      The ability to copy and paste any image from Illustrator, Photoshop, Google, and any other app! Copy/Paste should work from general clipboard for images.

          • Accept colors from Creative Cloud

            As far as I see I cannot change the color of background or any given abstract background by drag and drop from CC Libraries. The error message is "... Felix does not recognize this type of file." So I have to type in each color individually - which can get quite tiresome.

            • Material all items in a single group. Drop Material on Group folder in layer Tree

              As I import objects that have many items in a layer folder, I feel I should be able to mass apply a material to the grouped item and have this material apply to all items in the group. I see there is a folder in the layers that has all the pieces that create my grouped item, I feel I should be able to drag the material to the folder in the layered tree and have that material apply to everything in the folder. See attached. Thanks!

              • Eyedropper for sampling color for background color

                Also I have set a background image and want to match color of the background with image (have some transparent region) but their isn't eyedropper option to take color sample from image colors. IMHO that would be helpful

                  Happy to say the new version of Project Felix 0.3 – available on Creative Cloud as of July 19th, 2017 – has several new sampling options available:

                  1. A sampler tool has been added to the toolbar for sampling and applying materials across objects.
                  2. When you open any color swatch a sampler tool is available in the color picker and can pick screenspace colors – for example material color, background color and light colorizations can all select the color from the screen in this way.

                • light emitting material

                  is there any way to assign a light emmiting material to a object

                    • Linked Object Scaling

                      Scale dimensions need to be linked (the same way as in AI, ID or PSD). So I can scale the object proportionally.

                          Keep keyboard shortcuts same as in other apps (as much as possible), such as V for Move so don't need to learn too many new shortcuts

                            We updated a few of our tools back in the March release (V for Move, W for Magic Wand, R for Rotate and S for Scale). We’ll continue to keep an eye on this, for the moment will be closing.

                          • Dolly should be Zoom

                            I think Dolly camera shall be renamed to zoom and icon shall be changed to Magnifying glass instead, to make it more align with standard tool convensions.

                                Hi there! Just a quick message to check in on this feature since it has already been a month since it was posted. There isn’t a ton of new news in the meantime, we are gathering info on who is participating in our UserVoice forum with a short 5 minute survey – check it out!

                                https://adobe.allegiancetech.com/surveys/C4JU2R/

                                If you are interested in joining our Prerelease program then this is the way to volunteer yourself. Prerelease participants get early access to builds before they are released to the public and we’ll ask for additional insights/feedback.

                                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.

                                  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?
