  1. Allow user to put the "Tool options" back in the "view control bar" above the canvas, please.

    Dimension used to have the "Tool options" in a "view control bar" above the canvas. With an update, the "Tool options" was moved to a pop-out window attached to the toolbar.

    PLEASE make an option for users to move the "Tool options" back to the "view control bar".

    • 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!

      • Sierra and High Sierra

        Why can Adobe not allow Dimension to be supported while using Sierra/ High Sierra? I have multiple Mac Pros used for visual effects and post and will never go to Mojave due to its instability.

        I know Adobe was to have removed the hardware limitations but this is now going on for months.

        My spec:

        Mac Pro Mid 2012 12 2.0Ghz 6 core x 2 (4 Macs)
        64 gig RAM
        GTX 780Ti GPU
        2 x SSD's (boot and Scratch)
        4 x 4 WD Server Grade drives

        Whats happening Adobe? I need to use the new features

        • Adobe XD Integration

          Is it possible to integrate it with XD files? It would be very useful to make some Iphone X mockup using images from my Adobe XD.

          • More 3D formats

            Dimension CC must have more than one import file, not only OBJ, it must have STL, IGS ... Because if the 3D modeling programs that any user uses, do not export in OBJ, we will never work with Dimension CC because it limits our work

              Happy Monday, October 15th, everyone! Today we released an update to Dimension CC – the 2.0 release! This update includes support for 3 new file formats: .fbx, .skp (Sketchup), and .stl. We’ll continue to work on improving import bugs and compatibility and adding new formats.

              Since “more 3D formats” is fairly vague I’m going to close this request and please ask that you vote on individual format listing. If you want .3ds, vote on the .3ds format support idea!

              You can see more about the release here:
              https://helpx.adobe.com/dimension/using/whats-new.html

            • I love this!

              I just want to say, I just started playing around with Dimension today and I absolutely love this app! You're on the right track, and thanks for building it. :-)

              • Books & Magazines as Starter Models

                It would be useful to add books, magazines, and brochures to the list of the starter models.

                • Import .stp STEP files

                  Dimension would be much more useful if it could import standard cad formats such as .stp files.

                      Thanks for the suggestion here! Should be pretty easy to do. I’m curious would you primarily be selecting different objects of different shapes and sizes or primarily duplicated similar objects?

                      If the object has multiple parts would you want us to put the decal on all selected parts?

                    • Support for PSD layer mask

                      Hello, i'm trying to place a psd file with a layer mask into Dimension to create realistic shadow effects for this cut out image/object. When i place the psd on a plane (as image carrier) in Dimension, the alpha channel, i.e. the black part of the mask, is not transparent but rendered in a grey color, thus the whole plane casts a shadow, not just the mask. This functionality appears to be essential and easy to implement ?

                      • .igs/.iges, .sat, .smt and .stp/.step

                        These would be VERY helpful for those of us working in a Engineering Department. Engineers create models and we Technical Illustrators would love to make use of those models. Right now our option is a VERY EXPENSIVE Keyshot program. Bu we already have Adobe CC so it would be a great fit! So, PLEASE add support for at least these. Then later we'll bug you about native support for popular Solid Modeling Programs like SolidWorks and SolidEdge.

                          Hello everyone! Thank you for your votes/comments on adding .more file formats for Dimension. We are actively working on this and near completion on FBX, STL, SKP, and GLTF and are actively working on IGES and other formats. We plan to have some initial formats on our Prerelease soon, and I’ll send another update when that’s ready.

                          For now, we’re looking for some user files to help our testing process. We have many files from other sources, but user files are the best way to make sure we’ve covered all the possibilities! If any of you have some files you are able to share with us for testing we’d appreciate your contribution!

                          The files will be used only for the purposes of testing features. They will not be shared, sold, distributed, or used for other purposes.

                          You can send smaller files directly to tickets@adobedimension.com (<20 MB). If…

                        • save environment

                          Provide the ability to save the environment as a template so it can be reused with many different models. For example, if we want to use it to render product photos, so they all have a consistent presentation (lighting, materials, etc.).

                            Thanks for the idea! We’re evaluating saving many things. We’re starting with saving models and materials, but may include full templated scenes later. For the moment I’d recommend saving your .dn scenes itself then you can import a new object.

                          • Liquid Creation

                            When importing 3d models such as bottles, it would be nice if Adobe Dimension could add a liquid fill feature so that the bottle can represent a real beverage or condiment product.

                            • AI files (layer visibility Management)

                              placing AI file with Artboard Selection is really great feature, but to go a little further managing "layer" visibility should be a must (or something like "layer composition" you have in Photoshop)

                                  For applying to a material channel, you can double click the material to edit it, open the image for the channel (such as color, roughness) then use the file browser folder icon to browse for an image. We can certainly find a way for this to be more upleveled!

                                      Hi everyone! I wanted to let you know that we’ve started work on supporting more file formats. We won’t be able to address all of them at the same time. Our initial new formats we’re looking to support will be:

                                      .fbx
                                      .step
                                      .iges
                                      .stl

                                      When these are available on prerelease I will post an update here with an invitation for you to come try it out! Thank you for the feedback!

                                      • Add a render denoise filter

                                        Blender's denoising filter is a massive render speedup function. It works by taking a render with a low sample count, apply a denoise filter and output a final image that seems to have at least twice the sample count. Have a look at it here: https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/dev/render/cycles/settings/scene/render_layers/denoising.html

                                        Adding a similar function to Dimension would help with render times, which is the main issue with this application.
