  1. Include Background with Zoom

    Zoom option needs tinkering - I gather there are two sets of zoom included so far: 1. background settings 2. objects grid zoom. I'd like zoom to have an option to include background within zooming.

  2. Apply Text on Material

    Two, a field where we could input text onto a portion of the model, above the material, or as a layer.

  3. IOR Maps

    One, I would like the ability to import Index of Reflection Maps. currently can only give it a numerical value, however, the 3d paint program I use will give me an IOR map.

  4. Left and right ground level widgets used for grid movement

    Why not add plane widget in Felix?

    I think that would be great improvement and speed up our work. Also many Adobe Illustrator users know how to use it and they can easily manipulate object in 3D space

    "In addition, when you select the Perspective Grid, a Plane Switching Widget also appears. You can use this widget to select the active grid plane. In Perspective Grid, an active plane is the plane on which you draw an object to project the observer’s view of that portion of the scene."

    A. Left Grid Plane B. No Active Grid Plane C. Right…

  7. USD import support?

    Pixar has open sourced their "Universal Scene Description" file format (www.openusd.org) that is getting a lot of support in the VFX world. Is there any thought of supporting that format, at least for import?

  8. parallax normal map

    Normal map lacks a setting that is expected for bump type textures. The intensity and parallax need to be adjustable to get a correct looking relief or embossing look with a texture.

  10. Don't Ask Users to Post their Dimension.log File on feedback.adobedimension.com

    When Dimension crashes, it tells the user to submit a bug report via the Provide Feedback menu item, and to submit their Dimension.log file when doing so. The Provide Feedback menu item redirects the user to this site, feedback.adobedimension.com, where posts are publicly visible. By asking users to submit their log file, Dimension is asking it's users to expose the following information to the public:

    userId
    firstName
    lastName
    email
    countryCode
    displayName
    accountType

    This information should be kept private. Dimension should not ask its users to expose this information about themselves.

    Thank you for the feedback! The feedback button is supposed to have an in-app mechanism for attaching the file, which seems to not be working.

    On this website feedback.adobedimension.com there is a “Contact Us” which you can use to send attachments privately.

    We do not recommend attaching log files to forums.

  11. Workspace

    Maybe Dimension can have a setting where you can personalize your workspace and change the color of the workspace.

  12. Copy & paste of camera views between different DN files

    Copy & paste of camera views between different DN files. Currently, there's the only option of bookmarking camera views. It would be great to be able to copy and paste those bookmarks when opening different DN files.

    Another way would be to have the option to export the camera views or when drag&drop DN files into the Dimensions UI, to have a pop-up to check what you want to import: models, lights, cameras.

  13. Select Same (Material)

    Illustrator has a handy function that could be very useful in Dimension. When a single vector object is selected, you can click on the "Select" menu and choose "Same". Then you can choose a whole bunch of different attributes such as appearance or Fill Color or Stroke.

    I would like to select a single part or object in Dimension and choose Select Same Material and have it select all the objects with the same material.

    I know I can group all the objects with the same material together. I do that now as a work around. It would just be…

  14. Support for eGPU (external GPU)

    I'm running on a mac Mini that meets all the system requirements with an eGPU that also meets the system requirements. Every time I start Dimension I get an OpenGL error message. If I start without the eGPU running I can start the program just fine. Then I can start my eGPU and even use it to speed render times. I would like to not have to go through this unnecessary step every time I start this program.

    Dimension has never been tested with eGPUs. There’s probably no reason we can’t support them, just haven’t today. At this time we don’t have immediate plans to add this to our testing coverage, but I’ll bring it up to the team and will update here if we start work on it!

    A note, it’s not actually expected that plugging in the eGPU afterwards would change anything. Dimension selects the GPU at launch and once selected doesn’t change. I’m very curious about the performance change, but if it’s actually using the eGPU that is not by design.

  15. French keyboard shortcuts

    I have a "default french shortcuts" issue on the new camera behaviors :

    I like it a lot to have top, right, left view, assigned to 1234, except, by default, on a standard french mac keyboard, top row is dedicated to &é"'(§è!çà). You can press shift to get 1234… but that means alt-2 becomes alt-shift-2 on a laptop, and it becomes way less practical as a 2 fingers shortcut.

    I've also recently discovered the pref menu, so I know i should be able to edit this, but:
    1. if you make a "french keyboard default setup", that would really help. …

  16. Scene Panel Sorting & Filtering

    Under 'scenes', want way of making the menu alphabetical ,for sure, but also perhaps date modified. Sometimes there are too many and it's very boring looking for things which because you're zoomed in, you don't want to find by looking at the object then clicking.

  17. Window title to include filename

    The title is just a static "Adobe Dimension"

    This makes using automatic time tracking software impossible to decipher what file was being worked on.

    Should be an easy addition

  18. Object Variations

    It would be awesome to be able to create multiple “product configurations” that can be setup for easy rendering. For example, take a product packaging scene that needs many different textures for multiple product label versions/locales/languages/etc. Currently, each variation must be rendered out by hand individually, and there is no way to batch anything at the moment.

    In this scenario, each camera "render view" would still be the same, but the textures, materials, models, environment, etc. could all change.

    Take a look how Onshape and Keyshot handle their configurations. Onshape's configurations, though a CAD package, is incredibly powerful!

  19. Targa import

    Targa is a very common format for texture maps. You can open them in PS and convert to PNG/JPEG but it would be nice to have them work with Dimenion right away.
