  1. beveled or carved edges for art

    it would be awesome if we can create beveled/embossed letters for signage. especially letters carved into a surface with a v-cut (like in roman carved letters).

    it doesn't even need to be a live text tool, just enable the software to use vector art for 3d art, and we will create the vector in iilustrator and import it to the library.

      • Cloth Assembly and Simulation

        I've recently worked in two Design Projects that involved cloth of some sorts. One of them, that was a complete challenge and, though it won 1rst Prize in a National Design Contest, the cloth component still looks horrible on the renders.

        Trying to model the cloth part and get it together with the SolidWorks wooden parts was the biggest challenge here. I had to do it manually, polygon by polygon, within the time limit, and figure out a way to get everything together.

        Would there be any possibility of modelling cloth physics on Felix and allow for an easier manipulation…

          Very interesting topic. I think cloth simulation could be really fun to play with and definitely makes a lot of sense to have in some aspect. Thanks for attaching your example image, that’s very helpful.

          I’d love to hear what other people think of this too.

        • Custom Render layers

          It would be extremely helpful to be able to set up render layers with alpha channel for each Model, model sub component and material. This makes post work in PS much quicker and precise. Re-rendering also is much quicker if a layer can be swapped out - rather than a full re-render of the scene.

          • 3D Painting link between Felix & Ps

            Adobe could really take Felix to the next level, by adding the ability to paint on a mesh with UV's in Photoshop and communicate with Felix, by painting diffuse, spec, normal map then render within Felix send it back to Photoshop for the composite.

              Great suggestion. You can currently do 3D painting in Photoshop and then export the model as an .obj file so I think the key here with this request is to have a more live-linked experience. Could you talk more about what you’d want there?

              • Live Updating Material Thumbnails

                After changing the properties of a material the thumbnail in the document doesn't change to reflect the new colors or look.

                Also, after loading a model or saving and reloading the Felix .asd file the thumbnails all turn into "?" icons.

                Building a way for the application to show live thumbnails of the current materials instead of a static picture will help with these issues!

                    • Sculpting

                      If there's a way to create a sculpt mode where the model was more like clay that would be extremely useful for more organic shapes. A great example of what I'm talking about is Mudbox. It would probably need to support tablets first. It would also be great to have this feature connected to CC brushes etc.

                      • 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.

                        • render to EXR - render passes

                          It would very good to have the option to render to EXR with multiple passes. Compositing in this way gives a great deal of flexibility in post over the reflections, color, light /shadows, specularity, transparency..

                          It would also be very interesting to see the render output directly linked to Photoshop, premiere/ aftereffects.

                          In other applications rendering is not linked to the post processing tools - which makes it much slower to update layers and much less likely that re-rendering or additional changes will happen in the retracing tool.

                          • Flip Normal Directions

                            I tried to import an object made of Autodesk Fusion 360 and been transformed into OBJ through Autodesk 360.
                            When I apply a material like wood in rendering the object appears completely black.
                            I think the problem is related to the direction of the normal ... would be useful under felix have a command to invert the normal.

                            Another problem: there is the ability to scale the textures?

                                Definitely possible! Are you thinking something in Dimension where you pick a device 3D model then connect an XD doc to the screen?

                                Would you want anything particular there functionality wise inside of Dimension?

                                In many cases it is easy to find a good exterior photo to use as a background. However finding photos with perfect sky is problematic. If you could add composting controls for sky and clouds it would make the compostition interactive.

                                    Felix currently supports standard material types like wood, glass, metal, and plastics. Additional types could include effects and complex surfaces such as iridescent, glowing, skin, and layered materials like car paint.

                                      • Export for ARKit

                                        HI,

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

                                        • Show HDRI IBL in Background

                                          When you apply a spherical HDRI image to the background, there should be an option to unfreeze the image so when you orbit, the background changes with it.

                                          additionally, if an HDRI is chosen, it would be handy to have sliders in the options bar that allow you to change the image rotation, and scale. See attached concept
