  1. Custom Light Objects

    Lighting in Project Felix is currently handled through the Environment and Sunlight objects. Custom light objects would allow studio setups, with area lights that can be positioned, sized, rotated, colored, and set at varying intensities.

      Hello everyone! Jeanette from the Dimension team here. Excited to say that lighting is a topic that’s up next for us and as someone who has expressed interest in more lighting controls, we’re sending you a survey!

      You can take the survey here:
      https://goo.gl/forms/OqjdQIkLYG1MMaN62

      Lighting is such an exciting topic because it’s critical for both photorealism and unlocks such potential for creativity. Deep appreciation to all who can find the time to take the survey. It should take about 10-15 minutes and will help kickstart some research we’re running.

    • Directly input dimensions of an object

      I have a book cover that is 6x9x.75. It would be ideal to have the ability to input dimensions rather than scale.

      The ability to select units would be great, but to begin simply making it proportional would make it functional.

        Hello all. Units and dimensions are something that are very important, and we’re looking at getting some initial feedback on this topic. We have a brief survey and are also looking for a few people willing to do an interview. In exchange we’ll provide an Amazon gift card to the interviewees. If you’re interested please start by taking the following survey and we’ll notify those who are selected for the interview portion.

      • Separate Photoshop Shadow Layer

        When rendering to a layered Photoshop file, it would be extremely helpful to have the Object on one layer and the Cast Shadow on a separate layer. This will allow a designer the ability to manipulate shading and integrate it better into the picture. I have worked in 3D for many years (multiple programs) and this separate layered technique is one of the most used by artists and extremely powerful.

          Hi everyone. I wanted to let you know we do plan to add more layers to the .psd output including shadow/light passes, reflection and some other helpful bits. I’ll keep you updated as we get closer on this one.

        • Save Custom Materials

          After editing a material or adding textures to create my own it would be great to save the material for reuse in other projects.

              • Unit Settings

                This program is useless without the ability to draw objects in scale, i.e. transformation pallette should be in metric or imperial. Make it just like Illustrator just 3D and I will switch from my current 3D modeling/rendering app.

                • import or merge existing .dn scenes

                  Add the ability to import existing .dn-Files.
                  Had to do single product shots and after that I wanted to merge
                  them in an overview of the shots. No chance - Had to bild it up
                  from the start.

                            Hello! Definitely a great suggestion and something the team is considering heavily right now. It didn’t make our first few beta releases, but it’s on our roadmap for sure. I’ll let you know when we’re closer. :)

                          • Glow effect, Light radiance

                            perhaps when rendering glowing objects, (at a high setting) if there could be some light effects shinning off the surface of the glow? currently it just renders a start white edge and casts light over near by surfaces. it would look nicer if the object look closer to light, not just a solid color.

                                  • History or Revert feature

                                    A revert feature would be great in this app - just to provide some recourse when experimenting with lighting and material properties etc.. Learning by trial and error I am quiting quite a lot in order to get to a previous point [ultimate would be a history like Photoshop of course!]

                                        It could be valuable if we can have the transform gizmo of the decal also ifor shader's texture.

                                        And also
                                        It could be valuable to unlink diffuse and normal maps transformations.
                                        Sometimes diffuse maps and texture maps don't have the same "physical" size...

                                        • Support for PSD layer mask

                                          Hello, i'm trying to place a psd file with a layer mask into Dimension to create realistic shadow effects for this cut out image/object. When i place the psd on a plane (as image carrier) in Dimension, the alpha channel, i.e. the black part of the mask, is not transparent but rendered in a grey color, thus the whole plane casts a shadow, not just the mask. This functionality appears to be essential and easy to implement ?
