    • Export decal as separate layer

      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!

            • Faster Rendering

              Render times are slow, not usable.

              Render times are way to slow. If I render a simluaur scene in Cinema 4D, it takes only 1,5 - 2 minutes instead of forever...

                We released Dimension 1.1 today which has some great performance boosts. Scenes now render an average of 20% faster. In our tests the actual increase was up to 67% faster but the gain is variable for the complexity of the scene and the quality of the render.

                However, we’re not done and will continue to optimize performance, especially for rendering times. Please enjoy the increase and look forward to more!

                • Glow effect, Light radiance

                  perhaps when rendering glowing objects, (at a high setting) if there could be some light effects shinning off the surface of the glow? currently it just renders a start white edge and casts light over near by surfaces. it would look nicer if the object look closer to light, not just a solid color.

                    • Step and Repeat (Clone/Array)

                      It would be very usefull if designers could "step and repeat" objects in 3 dimensions to create a "store" visualisation effect. Important issue is that only one object can be modified. If the "master" object is changed, all objects in the "step and repeat" group should be automatically updated.

                          • GPU Rendering

                            Would be nice to use this with external GPU. My 2015 MBP with AMD Radeon is running fans so loud, it is hard to listen. And the speed of rendering is pretty slow.

                            Otherwise I definitely love the idea of 3D app for designers inclouded in CC. Just as handy, as Adobe Muse. Can't wait to see next versions.

                              Hello everyone! I know it’s been quiet on the GPU side of things for a while now. I wanted to let you know it’s been actively under the works for a bit, but a lot going on behind the scenes. Here’s what I can say so far!

                              In Dimension 2.0 we’ve launched an entire new rendering engine, the Adobe Dimension Renderer. This is an in-house rendering engine which allows us to have more direct control over many things. We’re actively working on GPU support and have our first beta proof for the RTX cards, demoed at Adobe MAX last week:
                              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4zNBOYcD1s

                              This includes an overhaul to being able to interact with the render mode, so thinking about both rendering during design work and as final renders. We’re still working on this and are looking to port the technologies to new cards and platforms (AMD, Mac Metal, etc.)

                              In…

                            • add models to cc library

                              Make it possible to import a .obj file and then add it to the cc library so you can share it with colleauges.

                              thanks

                              • Shadow mat material to catch shadows (or support for additional ground planes)

                                I do a lot of custom sign design (room sponsorships, donor walls, etc), and produce 3D renderings of them composited into reference photos I take of where the sign will be installed.

                                The quality of materials and rendering in Adobe Dimension really has me intrigued, but I need a way to place the 3D model vertically and catch the rendered shadow as if it was set against a wall.

                                In other software, I create a plane with a shadow mat material to catch the shadow, which is then rendered directly on top of the reference photo set as a background…

                                • Directly input dimensions of an object

                                  I have a book cover that is 6x9x.75. It would be ideal to have the ability to input dimensions rather than scale.

                                  The ability to select units would be great, but to begin simply making it proportional would make it functional.

                                    Hello all. Units and dimensions are something that are very important, and we’re looking at getting some initial feedback on this topic. We have a brief survey and are also looking for a few people willing to do an interview. In exchange we’ll provide an Amazon gift card to the interviewees. If you’re interested please start by taking the following survey and we’ll notify those who are selected for the interview portion.

                                    • 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.

                                        Colormanagement inclusion would be nice

                                          I'm sure you hear this a lot, but it would be great to have the ability to export objects in .C4D and .FBX file formats to be able to bring them into programs like After Effects and directly into Photoshop.
