  1. Integrate with After Effects

    Integrate in some way with after effects so we can use 3d in motion rather than just in stills.

    • 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.

      • 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.

          • Folding and Special Printing Effects

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

                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?

              • Create 3d .pdf files

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

                • 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...

                    • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

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

                                  • 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…

                                      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.

                                      • 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

                                        • 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.
