  1. Animation Presets

    Basic animation presets would be used to create turn arounds, fly-throughs, orbits, and other quick camera and object movements. These would likely include some parameters for customization such as speed, distance, and duration. Presets would not expose a full timeline and allow key framing for all properties initially.

  2. Folding and Special Printing Effects

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

  3. 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.

  4. Create 3d .pdf files

    I would like to be able to create 3d .pdf files so I can show my clients interactive 3d models.

  5. Render Round Corners

    I could be valuable to add "Round Corners" feature to the render engine.
    If it really Vray under Felix, I guess that this feature already exist, and it could be cool to expose it in Felix.

    The goal is to give more realism to basic shapes (lighter models) and to go faster...

    Thanks for the suggestion! Can I ask for a bit more detail? Would you want to define an area of the screen and have that keep rendering even if you change your camera? Or just like a quick “Show me this area” then it goes away?

  8. Background Rendering

    Ideally I would like to be able to work and render at the same time. So consider have a separate tab or window for the render. This way I can render high quality in the background, while working on a new model, scene, etc in the foreground.

  9. 360 background image

    I would like to be able to use a 360 still or video with Dimension so that when I rotate the view the background rotates in relation to the objects in the center.

    Hey everyone, Jeanette with the Dimension team here. We are conducting a survey all about 3D Characters!

    This survey takes 10 minutes to complete. The survey will remain open until Friday, March 22nd at 12:00 PM PT.

    Here is the link for the survey:
    https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FXGB5PD

    At the end of the survey, you will have the option to indicate whether you are interested in participating in a 60-minute, 1:1 research interview about 3D characters. Selected participants will receive a $100 USD Amazon gift card as a thank you for their time, upon completion of the interview.

  11. Cloud Rendering

    option to process final renders in the 'cloud', render images on external servers not on local machine. this would be a dream for all those not carrying around monster laptops or able to waste hours watching pixels grow.

    Hello all! I wanted to make a quick update on Cloud Render! This is still in the free beta period, but with our latest release (Dimension 2.3, which went live today July 16th), we’ve increased the size limit from 2000×2000 pixels to 4000×4000 pixels. Enjoy the higher resolution renders!

  12. Reflect/Mirror/Flip 3d Object

    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.

    Hello! Snapping in 3D is a huge must for Dimension! I wanted to share two things!

    First, if you haven’t tried it yet, clicking on the “pivot handle” (the white handle at the center of the gizmo) will let you drag models along the surface of other models and the ground. I’ve attached a .gif and you can learn more about the move tools in Dimension here:
    https://helpx.adobe.com/dimension/using/use-transform-tools-select-arrange-objects.html

    Second, we’re also going to start working on some more advanced object snapping. I’ll update soon when we have progress!

  14. Layered Material

    When creating more complex materials, one of the most important things that I'm missing is a layered material, that we can blend different materials on top of another using masks or blend values like we have in VRayBlendMtl: https://docs.chaosgroup.com/display/VRAY3MAX/Blend+Material+%7C+VRayBlendMtl

  15. Wireframe/Shaded display feature

    For better performance it will be helpful to add wireframe / shaded display of object while working on project as it takes time to apply any action

  16. 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!

  17. 3D Model Effects (twist, bend, shatter)

    Effects are used on a model to change the basic shape in some manner. Common examples are twist, bend, and shatter.

  20. Control Presets for Other 3D Software

    The first thing you want to do when you get into a new 3D app, is learn to move around. It's the thing you actually do the most.

    I feel like every time I go into a new 3D package every one is always trying to make you conform to their new controle system... I think that you should have the ability to manuver with the same controles from your most familiar package.

    Cinema 4d
    Maya
    Max
    Blender

    Blender actually has this feature, and I always choose Maya controles...

    Back when before it was Autodesk Maya and it was still…

    The latest release of Dimension now includes. a control preset for Substance Painter which is similar to the 3D industry standard of Alt being the main camera control activator.

    However, this only controls the camera presets, not additional tools like WER for move, rotate, scale.

    We’d love some feedback from anyone who tries out this preference on whether camera controls being similar to other 3D apps is helpful without additional controls presets for other tools like the transform tools.
