    • The camera-bookmarks menu hides the preview window

      Hello,
      I often use camera bookmarks to quickly display several zoom on the image (close-up, whole object, just a part, ...). But at the same time, I need to see the preview window to verify the quality of the lights. This is not possible because the bookmark menu hides it. And if you put the preview window in full screen, the bookmark menu disappears. It would be perfect if the bookmark menu could still be visible and do not hide the preview window.

      • 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.

            Thank you for the suggestion! We definitely plan on supporting both .ai and .svg files locally for images. Please note that there is a separate discussion for extruding shapes into 3D.

            http://projectfelix.uservoice.com/forums/552559/suggestions/31410262

            Since this is for us to notify you guys on status, let’s keep the ideas separate. This one will be for supporting the AI file type, and the other is creating 3D extrusions from vectors.

          • 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.

              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.

            • Default render export path & filename to the same filename and path as the background image.

              Usually when working on a project you open the background image from a certain folder and want to save your render to that same folder. It would be a lot easier to have the default save path be the path that you opened your background image from and ideally maintain the same filename.

              • offset texture interactively

                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...

                  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.

                  • Detailed System Requirements Info

                    I received a message that my machine does not meet one of the requirements for the program to run optimally, but it does not tell me which requirement my machine is not meeting. It would be nice if you had a utility or some way of showing which system requirements are met and which ones fall short.

                      Great suggestion and something we’re planning for our next release. We have the information in the logs and it’s pretty easy to add it to the dialog! In the mean time if anyone needs help figuring out what system requirement they don’t meet, feel free to send in a 1-1 request (you can do so on the main page here, in-app, or by e-mailing tickets@adobedimension.com).

                      When sending in a request be sure to include your Application log files.

                      • Depth of Field Preview in Canvas

                        Quite often when rendering, my object stays blurry while the background renders well. This happens about half of the time, when rendering the exact same file (only changed the decal) which has rendered fine before. How can this happen?

                        I changed the render quality and tried both PNG and PSD, but that doesn't seem to solve the problem.

                        See attachment for example.

                          While not technically a bug, this is caused by an issue with the app.

                          There’s a feature called Depth of Field which lets you add blur to the render. You set it up in Design Mode in the environment properties. However, depth of field doesn’t preview in the canvas, so you have to turn on the render preview window to be able to configure it properly.

                          Currently there is no preview in the canvas so many users are accidentally creating renders that are blurry. I’m going to mark this as a feature request for Depth of Field in the Canvas which is something we’re going to add soon!

                            Hello! Marking this as “Planned” but you can do this currently. In Felix 0.3 just select the “Camera” object from the scene panel and then look at the properties panel. The Camera Size is located here and dictates the final output of the render.

                            Marking as planned because we are going to make some changes to make it easier and more discoverable, so I’ll use this to update everyone when it’s done! :)

                                    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!]

                                      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.

                                        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. :)

                                      • Estimate Render Complete Time

                                        estimate rendering time. 5-30 mins is still better than nothing.

                                        • 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.
