  1. enable obj export for procedural textures as baked PNG's not PSD

    At the moment some of the material textures export the texture file as a PSD. It would be usefull if there was an option for them to be exported a PNG files.

    My specific application is full color 3D printing and this would mean that the files could be imported as an obj directly into the pre print preparation software without having to import to and then export from PS

  2. Information about embedded image

    Images are automatically embedded in Dimension. If you open a scene after a while and don't remember which image was used, Dimension doesn't help. Therefore, it would be great if wherever you can add images, there would be a button for information (i) that displays information about the image: original name, resolution, color depth, ect. See screenshot. The file information comes from Adobe Bridge. This would be ideal as information.

  3. Render the decal's alpha channel to another render layer, so we can composite just the decal in Photoshop

    The decal's alpha channel is working in Dimension, just pass it through to another render layer, so we can render labels for our own pictures

  4. Open Files instead of Import

    When I go to File, Open, The only optional file types are .asd or *.dn. I am trying to open a Sketchup 2019 file as per attached.

    Unfortunately we don’t allow ‘open’ for any 3D model formats, only to open existing .dn saved scenes. Instead, create a new document, then use File > Import to import .fbx, .skp, stl, and .obj files.

    We’ll be adding “import” files to “open” soon!

  5. Name for duplicated or instance objects

    It would be great if copied objects (cmd-d, cmd-v) could get the name addition (copy) and instances the name addition (instance). This would save time when creating a complex scene.

  7. Nested Objects (Import Multiple, into group/bin)

    The ability to nest objects Upon import would allow me to actually use DN in a serious capacity.

    Think about how solidworks nests small parts in assemblies, and assembles into complete items. Or how Premiere nests clips into sequences, or how objects group in illustrator.

    I often work on single products that have tons of small screws, and hardware. I would love the ability to import multiple items (at the same time) into an assembly or group.

  12. Greater Object Manipulation

    Because I do not have access to software like Z-brush or Maya (etc.), I continuously use Adobe Dimension. I'm addicted to it. While I have used it for mockups, I mostly use the geometric shapes for creating concept art geared towards vehicles and architecture. It would be desired to have the ability to alter the shapes even more! For an example, when altering a cube, it would be nice to click on one of the sides and scale or extrude the surface. Another way to alter a selected object would be to introduce a mesh. Perhaps, this alter option could…

  15. Renders cancelling without any alert

    I’m so sorry to hear about the issue here. Can you provide a bit more detail when you say it ‘self cancels’? What are you seeing in the interface?

    Can you also let me know which version of the Dimension application you’re using (you can check in the About menu item)? Finally, can you let me know what render settings you’re using? Is it high quality or low? Local or cloud?

    Thank you for any additional information!

  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. Switching Modes from Render to Design forgets selected render views...

    Render Settings: Keep the "most recent" views selected when switching back to the Design tab. Currently, going back to Design resets this selection list every time to Current View, and I am constantly forgetting to re-check everything before hitting render.

  20. 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.
