    In version 2.3 you can now import objects. Therefore I created some as a temporary solution for the missing camera bookmarks and use them as masters for new projects. Nevertheless, it would be great if these presets were already included in DN and you could import camera settings into other DN projects. 3D data formats like Collada (that) or FBX contain camera position ;-)

    Everytime I'm doing some composition in Dimension, I see myself creating a top view camera, and more than often I also build a left view/front view in addition. Then I go back to my main camera.

    Now I know how this works, and I start by creating a * star * preset, but having those under hand for ANY scene would be good.

    Honestly, I think I never had a single "non demo" project where I would not move objects on a plane AT FIRST.

    Then of course, I'll setup a camera and tweak things in 3D space to avoid graphic knots.

    I suppose default storing of a top + left view doesn't make an heavier default file :)

    (PS : Sorry, I can't edit my first post from the app).

    Ability to set camera view to TOP, BOTTOM, FRONT and BACK positions according to the ground plane.

    There needs to be standard orthographic views (front, top, right, etc.). Right now it's too difficult to position things because of they aren't present (that I can find).

    Hi and thank you for Dimension!

    1. The render quality and easy setup is an advantage.
    2. There is a leakage in having preset camera positions at a difinite angle. This wil help to have all renders at a same angle.

    A few more Camera Bookmarks would be useful:


    Reference: Illustrator's 3D effect cube UI with preset views.
