Would be nice to use this with external GPU. My 2015 MBP with AMD Radeon is running fans so loud, it is hard to listen. And the speed of rendering is pretty slow.
Otherwise I definitely love the idea of 3D app for designers inclouded in CC. Just as handy, as Adobe Muse. Can't wait to see next versions.
Hi all! I just wanted to give a quick update, since GPU rendering has been out as a beta for a little while. The initial beta was built on NVidia Optix backend and only worked for some Nvidia cards. Thank you for all of the feedback so far!
One issue we’re hearing is that the GPU renderer errors out and then Dimension doesn’t show the GPU as supported again. Updating to the latest video card drivers is recommended and may resolve this issue.
We’re actively working on rebuilding the GPU rendering in a different way, so it’s available to all users across all hardware (Nvidia, AMD, MSI, etc).
We’ll update the status here as we get closer to a beta of the next version of GPU rendering.
Yup, GPU, was worried about the slow renders until I realized it wasn't using my GPU.
Paul Ryan commented
Please way faster render engine.
Well, top and what will get released are not always the same. :) GPU is one of our top priorities, it's just going to take some time. We're working on performance and improvements to the current features for our next release. You can also use this User Voice site to see what's Planned and Started.
Can you share what are the 5 features on the top of your list?
Jarek Zakrzewski commented
From your post was one year past.... and still there is no GPU rendering.. So when it can be happen?
that this needs a vote makes me sad. Implement already
and another vote for GPU rendering. Even multiple GPUs!
Stefan Klein commented
Add my vote to GPU rendering.
Jeff Korzeniowski commented
Being someone who has to work with CPU rendering, i can't wait till i can utilize my 1080ti. Please, please, please make it a priority!!

For those wondering: GPUs are much more parallel than CPUs which were not built to render. CPUs provide very general, flexible computing while GPUs can only handle much simpler, basic tasks but on a significantly larger scale. When calculating a scene to many pixels, you don't need to have the full flexibility of a CPU, but you do need it to power many computations quickly. Even basic Intel integrated GPUs should theoretically perform much better than i5 or i7 CPUs.
And yes, many professional graphic designers who intend to use CUDA processing and video editing will have dedicated GPU cards, along with everyone who designs in 3D.
Yup, a GPU rendering option would be awesome. I wouldn't force GPU rendering on everyone, but instead provide the option of using CPU vs. GPU. As it stands, only people with insanely beefy CPUs would get decent render times using the current renderer. I've got a good CPU (i5 8600K), but at 1 thread for each of its 6 cores, using Adobe Dimension's low-quality and low-res render setting, it's too slow to be usable on anything but the most basic scenes.
Otherwise, Dimension is a very cool little product!
Can you improve use of CUDA on 3rd part video card (like Nvidia Titan X or 1080Ti) for use on macpro or Hackintosh
The rendering for example is a little bit slow and has not a big request on the GC.
maybe the ability like on photoshop to run the software with or without an gpu.
Rendering large files that takes longer then 30 minutes puts a lot stress on cpu pushing it to100% and GPU will take stress of cpu balancing load and push faster rendering time.
Hello, I used Felix for the first time last night, its quite good for quick sketching but the rendering times are painfully slow. I created a simple scene and rendered it out at only 2k*1k and it took over 9 hours. As a test I created a similar scene and rendered it out in a GPU based render software and it only took 44 mins to render the scene in 4k when using my CPU and GPU together. As I usually render out for work projects I aim as high as 10k renders with an average time of 4 hours per frame. When do you plan on releasing GPU support, once that is available I can see this becoming a handy tool for pre-visualisation.

CUDA support would be nice (also for the Mac version)
James Lovell commented
Definitely a must to become useful to me; Please implement this feature!
Implementation of graphics card and CUDA technology as the rest of the adobe suite does. Rendering out at the moment appears to be using all CPU and no GPU at the moment
support for nvidia gpu's (or all gpu's in general) , especially nvidia geforce gtx 850m. also a render progress bar would be great.
still a lot of work to do on the program, but it will be awesome when it's done!
Tiago Miranda commented
It would be really AWESOME if we could use GPU accelerated graphics rendering! I have a GTX 1070 and I would really benefit from using it for Felix instead of relying completely on the Intel i7 CPU. Those who use Quadros would even be more grateful!
Its very slow rendering. It should use the GPUs power to speed up rendering like OTOY's Octane renderer.
