  1. Single Select Tool (combine move/rotate/scale)

    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.

    • Higher decal resolution

      Higher resolution for decals would be nice. Had to add a decal to a product shot and it was pixilated on the render image.
      Really annoying because I wasn't able to make FINAL detail shots of the product and had to add the decals in Photoshop by hand.

      BTW: Is there a limit for the resolution of decals?

        Hello everyone! First, I wanted to apologize for the delay in communication on this issue. I realize that unreliable, pixelated graphics are a huge blocker for the work you’re trying to do in Dimension. Due to a number of technical backend reasons, we weren’t able to start on this right away, but we’re now actively working on resolving this issue.

        The engineering team has requested some user files. If you have a saved .dn scene with a pixelated graphic you can send in to help in testing the solution that you’re willing to send in, it would be much appreciated!

        You can e-mail your .dn scene files up to 20MB directly to tickets@adobedimension.com. If it’s larger than 20MB please send via a link using Dropbox, WeShare, Google Drive, or another file transfer service. Please include a brief description to let me know the file shows a pixelated decal.

      • 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.

        • 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.

                      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?

                    • Align Objects in 3D

                      While creating 3D sculptures, I would love the option to align the different shapes (centered/External sides...) based on space or between objects.

                            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.

                            • 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...

                                Yeah this is a VRay feature we’ve thought about. It just rounds out the edges a little bit to give them a more natural, less ‘hard’ look. I think it could be very valuable! Thanks for posting!

                                  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.

                                    • Unit Settings

                                      This program is useless without the ability to draw objects in scale, i.e. transformation pallette should be in metric or imperial. Make it just like Illustrator just 3D and I will switch from my current 3D modeling/rendering app.

                                        Hello all. Units 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.

                                      • 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.

                                          Thank you for the feedback! Just to be sure I understand, you want to first apply a decal to the object then stretch the model to match the decals size without deforming the graphic, correct?

                                          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.

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