  2. Export environment image created from flat image

    Option to export background panorama created from flat image. It is visible now is Environment Light slot (see attachment).

    Based on documentation, Dimension uses Content Aware Tool known from Photoshop. It could be impemented in Photoshop as filter as well, as it is very useful feature for every designer working in 3D environment.

  3. Add Render Preview Settings

    Have render preview SETTINGS, the live render times are really bad, especially on heavier materials such as glass.

    If there could be like most 3D programs a setting for render previews like wireframes, or quarter and so on, this will speed up the updating proccess.

    Thanks you

  4. Render Time Examples for Machine Types

    My 5 year old Mac has been rendering for two hours and has done only 4% of a 2000 x 1200 pixels image with no more than 4 objects. Maybe an overview would be nice, showing supported machines with examples of render time, based on a simple lay-out in comparising with a complex lay-out

    This is a really interesting suggestion and something we’ve been considering. There are so many combinations of hardware that it’s hard to do a general overview. However, we are adding information about what types of things impact render times. The primary things are:

    Hardware (CPU)
    Resolution
    Render Quality
    Translucent Materials

    Also, effects like reflections or lots of objects bouncing light off each other, etc. There will definitely be more as we expand our features.

  5. Pinch-Zoom

    It would be really nice to be able to use a pinch-zoom feature on my mouse pad, much like I can in Illustrator and like-products.

  6. stop render at a specific sample level

    I like to see a sample level indicator on the render & render preview so progress can be checked on. Also the ability to have the render stop at a specific sample level.

  7. Turn workstation to the sleep mode after render is done

    This would be really nice to have the ability to turn the workstation to the sleep mode after the rendering process is done.

  8. HDR Light Studio

    It might be interesting compatibility with HDR Light Studio to manage and generate a set of more professional lights.

  9. Scriptable rendering

    Would like to be able to script adding objects to a preset scene - maybe pass a file for the preset scene and a file for the item(s) to import then get a render out. Ideally this would work without launching the GUI so that batches of exports can be created automatically.

    The use case for this is users online designing a product (in this case a guitar) by choosing a bunch of options, then we'd like to produce a high quality render at some point after, from their design.

  10. Don't allow file open to Interrupt render

    When many windows are open and rendering is happening to a file in the background it is too easy to interrupt the render by double clicking on a .dn file. Can you give an alert box to prevent interrupting the render in progress?

    Thank you for this observation, and I’m sorry for the render progresses you might have lost due to clicking on a Dn file.
    We will try to make sure there is a warning to let you know whenever a render might be interrupted. Thanks for the great feedback and let me know if you have any other issues!

  11. Export as webgl

    Ability to render to webgl to incorporate into json.

  12. Render File Naming

    UI:

    The rendered file should take on the name of the native Dimension file by default.

  13. SIBL layers

    More flexibility and light control. Positioning is needed other than rotation.

  15. Label Selection Mask

    Is it possible to add Label mask to Material Selection Masks layer within rendered psd?

    Currently, a rendered psd has Material Selection Masks and Object Selection Masks layers. None of them display label mask if label is applied and rendered.

  16. Toggle Render Options (visible, shadow, GI)

    It would be nice to be able to toggle render options on and off per object like...
    1. primary visibility
    2. visible in reflections
    3. visible in refractions
    4. casts shadows
    5. receives shadows
    6. emits GI
    7. receives GI

    These options should be available when you click on the 3D object and see the transform info on the right side of the window. Maybe there is another tab with render options? I would imagine that features like this could reduce render time and allow for that extra customization you cant get in real life.
