Final Render Transparency
Transparency on final render would be great fro compositing in photoshop with other elements.
Hello all! We’re reverting this behaviour in our next release so you’ll be able to do transparent background renders again. We’ll be using pure white as the fill color for the environment to give it a neutral lighting so you can colorize it easily in post if necessary.

Still waiting for this to happen :)
I would like to be able to save transparent PNG or at least PSD with 8bit to avoid too big files.
Another Question: Why are the PSDs in "RGB linear" instead of sRGB?
Is there an update on this release?
Is there a release date for this feature? It would be really nice to work with that A transparent background render is so important for a 3D application

It would be great to be able to Render in .png format with a transparent background (like in previous versions). For me to have transparent images, I need to render as PSD - Open Each Image in Photoshop - Remove Background - Export as png. This has doubled the time it takes me to create the final version of my renders, especially If I render an object with 20 different angles.
There surely must be a fix to this?
I understand your "we can’t use transparent lighting/reflections" comment, but could we not have the object reflect on a chosen color (e.g Black or White) but just remove the colored backgrounds?
I unchecked the background box and even deleted the background image completely and I still also get a png with a white background in the png. Hoping there might be a preference or something that I have to update. The other option is to export as photoshop file and then remove the layer there. Seems useless to me
@Jeanette - Your suggestion worked! Thank you! That makes it so much faster and easier to create .tifs from Ps for print layout work.
Hi Janette, I was able to save a png with a transparent background...until I wasn't. Even with the background box unchecked I still wind up with a white background in the png. Is there a bug or some sort of work-around?
@Thrill - I'm sorry can you go into more detail here? This question/comment wasn't really asked or answered well. You can turn your background off in Dimension if you want to render it transparent.
- Go to Design Mode
- In the Scene panel select the Environment
- Turn off the checkbox next to "Background" in the properties.
Your render will now have a transparent background.
That's ridiculous Jeanette. That's double the work. We just used Dimension for 20 product renders and had to open each in Photoshop separately just to save it as transparent. That's a total pain in the arse and shouldn't be the case.
Hello! If you save as a layered .psd the transparency of the 3D content is preserved on a separate layer from the background image or color. Is that the functionality you were looking for?
