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.110 votes
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:
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.
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.90 votes
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.
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.61 votes
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.
After editing a material or adding textures to create my own it would be great to save the material for reuse in other projects.47 votes
Hello! The Dimension team is gathering some feedback around various export requests. If you’re interested in providing more detail on your request for exporting workflows, please take a moment to fill out the following brief survey:
Import 3d Models from a other Dimension file (.dn)27 votes
Being able to link my image files so when I save the changes in Photoshop/Illustrator, etc, it is updated in Dimension.21 votes
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.20 votes

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.16 votes
Wrapping decals, I'm trying to wrap a label around a cylinder or even the jar model and its doing this15 votes
Make it possible to import a .obj file and then add it to the cc library so you can share it with colleauges.
For better performance it will be helpful to add wireframe / shaded display of object while working on project as it takes time to apply any action13 votes
Crashes Then Corrupts Original File - We NEED AUTO Backups!!
If we had automatic backups, my 5 hours of work would not be lost. Felix IS the next major player in the 3D modeling market so this is a MUST HAVE safety feature.10 votes
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. :)
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.8 votes
Making the “Glow” option for materials actually emit light and bloom is a planned enhancement! Not sure when exactly we’ll get in, but we’ll let you know when we start on that.
It seems like i can, but when i choose the file i want to import and click open it never apears.8 votes
I could see it being beneficial to have a pause button on the rendering process.7 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! We did in fact, used to have a pause button. But it broke so we had to kill it for a bit. :( It will return when we fix the pause mechanism!
Depth slider for decals as seen in Keyshot5 votes
We plan on adding a depth slider for decals to give embossing and debossing effects in the future. I don’t have a specific timeline for that yet, but it’s on our roadmap!
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!]5 votes
remember folder saved to4 votes
We plan to remember opening, loading, and saving folders in the near future. I’ll update here when we’ve started on this!
It could be valuable if we can have the transform gizmo of the decal also ifor shader's texture.
It could be valuable to unlink diffuse and normal maps transformations.
Sometimes diffuse maps and texture maps don't have the same "physical" size...3 votes
Thank you for the suggestion! We do plan on enabling in-canvas manipulation of materials and individual textures. Not sure yet when that will get in, but you’ll get an update here when it’s available.
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 ?2 votes
We plan on unifying the way transparent images are handled later this year. Right now it can be pretty confusing and we don’t always respect transparency correctly.
