option to process final renders in the 'cloud', render images on external servers not on local machine. this would be a dream for all those not carrying around monster laptops or able to waste hours watching pixels grow.
As of January 11, 2021, Cloud Rendering (beta) has been removed from Dimension.
Thank you for all who participated in using the beta during this time and for the exceptional feedback provided to the team! We are continuing to develop our rendering solutions including in-app, cloud, and automation offerings and you can expect more rendering news in future releases.
I'd like to request that the cloud rendering not stop at 100% and then fail. I've had it happen to 4 different renderings in the past two days doing a low resolution render. It's quite frustrating to say the least.
I assume you have a Windows system so fyi the update Dimension button on the Adobe CC app is giving you a fake message... do not press update if you have the prerelease installed because it places the public version instead and often also buggers up your files mate
Cloud Rendering is currently in a private beta. You'll need to join the Prerelease group and download the build there. I think you should already be a member if you had access to it before:
I recently updated Dimension & I don't have access to cloud rendering anymore ... & I really need it ... is it a way to download beta version somewhere ? Many thanks !
We'll be adding PSD download to cloud rendering directly very soon. There's no very simple way to adjust the shadows alone without cropping them out of the main image and adjusting as a separate layer (which is much easier with the PSD selection layers). We hope to have a new build for you guys on the Prerelease in the next few weeks which will include the PSD export and some new functionality.
Cloud rendering is a life saver, but since there is no PSD option I have been turning off the background then rendering a PNG and composing them in photoshop.
However, the shadows come up substantially darker that way compared to locally rendering a PSD. Is there any way to fix this? Or at least some way to adjust in photoshop?

I'm using Adobe Dimension for my online shop to generate dynamically generated Images. But my problem is, that there is for me no way to render all my images on my local PC. So I think a server version for Linux would be a ability.
A cloud render would be great
I don’t see them as mutually exclusive but full online functionality implies desktop* ui to me… if we can at least do the rendor then an older windows 7 laptop working in Antarctica is just as capable of using Felix as a custom gaming rig.
*the dream is a phone | tablet being able to process ‘in the field’ but the reality of phone ui design that works isn’t easy.
Interesting! I'm curious do you see this more as an online rendering service or a full web-based interface to do the design work?
the option to work on line with a browser (like the Mixamo fuse online animation tools) would open the software up to people without high end systems and make it more attractive to schools for teaching basic animation courses... Adobe CC is well and good but there are major issues with their networking and this would also work around that roadblock
