  1. Default render export path & filename to the same filename and path as the background image.

    Usually when working on a project you open the background image from a certain folder and want to save your render to that same folder. It would be a lot easier to have the default save path be the path that you opened your background image from and ideally maintain the same filename.

        Thank you for the suggestion! I’m curious if you’ve used the existing method of creating a mask for roughness/metallic properties? If so, what are your thoughts on that workflow? How do you imagine it being different?

      • change object size/dimensions without distorting graphics.

        Currently if I modify an object the placed graphic (whether it has already be placed or will be placed later) becomes distorted, this is wildly frustrating. All I would like to do is use the plane surface and put a graphic on it and the plane be the same size as the graphic, as far as I can tell, and this includes plenty of time with support, this is not possible.

        • Folding and Special Printing Effects

          Can we have special printing effects simulated over the packaging designs - like UV, Foil, Embossing.... it would be excellent!

          • Combine/Subtract Models (Booleans/Pathfinder)

            Booleans are the 3D equivalent of pathfinder, allowing you to take two shapes and combine or subtract their volumes from each other. For example, taking a cube then using a cylinder to 'cut' a hole through the cube.

            • 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.

              • Warp Properties for image (decal)

                It would be nice to have warp functions in the properties for images. I'm trying to wrap a coffee cup and the image curves upward and doesn't join at the two ends. If you could key stone the image it would accommodate for the conical nature of the cup shape.

                      Hello everyone! We’re continuing work on the dielines research and thank you to everyone who has submitted sample files so far! We’re still gathering more samples, so if you have dielines with artwork and graphics placed that you can share with Adobe (for internal research purposes only) please feel free to send me an e-mail: jmathews@adobe.com.

                      The Dimension team is very interested in the topic of creation/modeling/editing as a whole. We haven’t added any creation so far, but are actively researching this area. We have a new survey on modeling and editing and would love your thoughts on the topic!

                          I need ability to duplicate and relection 3d element. Right now if we duplicate 3d stuff on the left and want it the same look and position on the right - reflected look. It is impossible to get the look using rotation orbit.

                              Currently Project Felix has three tools for selectiong and transformation, the Move, Scale, and Rotate tools. A single tool would allow you to do some or all of the actions with a single tool with a redesigned interface.

                                • Import MTL Materials

                                  I'm having a very difficult time creating new materials...
                                  I'm currently trying to create a snake skin material, but Dimension CC doesn't support MTL files????
                                  What is the file type Adobe Dimension uses for its materials? Dimension should import MTL files as these are very common.

                                  ---

                                    Dimension uses the Adobe Standard Material which is based off of the NVidia MDL language. Our supported extension is ‘.mdl’, but it does require the Adobe Standard Material type. You can create MDLs using Substance Painter and Designer at the moment.

                                    https://helpx.adobe.com/dimension/using/standard-materials.html

                                    For MTL we do have a conversion process when importing it along with an .obj but we do not have a standalone MTL importer yet. This is something we can add though. Since this is an idea based forum I’ll edit this question to be a proposal to support importing MTL materials.

                                    HI! Great start on this application, could be amazing.
                                    Right off the bat, it's imperative to be able to export a label or decal separate from the object it's on. Would be a great feature - not so usable until thats there. Thanks!

                                    • offset texture interactively

                                      It could be valuable if we can have the transform gizmo of the decal also ifor shader's texture.

                                      And also
                                      It could be valuable to unlink diffuse and normal maps transformations.
                                      Sometimes diffuse maps and texture maps don't have the same "physical" size...

                                        Thank you for the suggestion! We do plan on enabling in-canvas manipulation of materials and individual textures. Not sure yet when that will get in, but you’ll get an update here when it’s available.

                                        Vehicles: Would be fantastic if you could make car models available for vehicle wraps. Or at least the option to import blueprints/renderings of them.

                                        • Background Layer Controls (position, rotate, scale)

                                          Currently the background image is simply projected as is with some basic controls for choosing between scale modes (crop, fit, or scale). Controls would allow you to position, rotate, and scale the background image freely in relation to the camera.
