  1. Advanced Render Quality Settings

    A little more technical info like samples, render ETA etc. instead of just high/med/low could be helpful for the more informed. Also, the ability to disable choose arbitrary render resolution from the render tab is more convenient IMO instead of having to change it every time from the camera panel.

          Work for multiple view windows hasn’t begun and is still in review. While we understand the value of multiple viewports we have a good bit of work to do on improving the one viewport we currently have. We’re focusing on the current composition, bookmark and render experience for this year but will probably start looking into multiple cameras and viewports more next year.

        • Add bump map/texture

          It would be a good idea to add bump map/ edit texture UVs feature

          • Adding texture or images, like wood to the grounds plane.

            Adding an option to the grounds plane property where you can add textures like wood or cement onto the grounds plane. It's helpful when rendering something that needs a surface as a background. And being able to change angles and still make the object look like its sitting on the same surface.

                  Hello! In our next release we’ve added automatic UV generation and error fixing so if you have a model with no UVs or that we detect UV errors you’ll get a prompt to resolve the issue.

                  This process is currently fully automatic and we are not yet adding manual UV mapping and controls. Once the new feature is out we’ll continue to evaluate providing manual custom UV controls.

                • 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.

                  • Step and Repeat (Clone/Array)

                    It would be very usefull if designers could "step and repeat" objects in 3 dimensions to create a "store" visualisation effect. Important issue is that only one object can be modified. If the "master" object is changed, all objects in the "step and repeat" group should be automatically updated.

                      Once there is animation support it would be great to export in video.

                        • Multiple monitor support

                          When using multiple monitors, i would like to move my pallets to a second monitor.. it seems they are locked into the single view mode. I would especially like to see the preview window moved off of my art-board. some people utilize more than one monitor and would like to see their designs in full screen.

                            Thanks for the suggestions everyone! We (Adobe as a whole) are considering the next generation of User Interfaces, so this is a discussion that is being taken very seriously across the company. I’d love specific examples of the things you like to dock/undock and why.

                          • Export for VR

                            It would be nice to be able to do rapid prototyping integration for VR testing of 3D spaces before going to Unity 3D to build. Could add as an output option to render equirectangular pngs. Then you could plug in the phone similar to XD prototyping to view on device and/or in a cardboard viewer.

                            • Better Selection Tools (Marquee, Lasso, Paint Select)

                              Specifically selecting just parts of the model to be able to have different textures or cut out part of the model perhaps. See attached for an idea of what might be accomplished with this. Please give me feedback on if this is already a feature. Thank you.

                                Great suggestion! We definitely want to allow for much more customized selections in the future. You said you’d like to cut out part of the model as well, can you say more about what you mean? Do you want to ‘cut it out’ as a new model?

                                      Hello! Definitely a great suggestion and something the team is considering heavily right now. It didn’t make our first few beta releases, but it’s on our roadmap for sure. I’ll let you know when we’re closer. :)

                                    • Render Time Limit

                                      It would be useful to set a period of time for the render to use. Combined with my earlier idea, a render queue, you would be able to get a set number of renders at a set time. Very useful in the creative world where deadlines are frequent and always closing in.

                                      I've added a quick scene being rendered on a MacBook Pro (Late 2013 top spec, i7 quadcore 2,6, 16GB ram, GT750M 2GB), medium quality, 1024x768, with a snapshot taken at 30 minutes. It's still going, about 40 minutes now, not much difference in quality, so a way to…

                                      • Import new object to same X,Y,Z orientation as current selection

                                        Here is the proposed workflow:
                                        1. Select an object in Dimension that you've placed
                                        2. Go up to File>import> 3D Object and click to start the import process
                                        3. Imported object is set at the exact coordinates of the previously selected object, and is now the selected object in your scene.
                                        4.You can now make minor X,Y,Z location changes to the new object in order to have it match your vision of the composition.

                                        Current process
                                        1. write down all of the coordinates for your currently selected object.
                                        2. Go up to File>import> 3D Object and click to start the…

                                          Thanks for the suggestion! Very interesting. I’m curious what the core thing you’re trying to do is, though.

                                          Do you want it to import to the same location so that it’s visible because your camera is looking one way and it’s importing behind you? Or is it more about composition, like you’re placing it near that object so want to start there?

                                          Currently we always import objects to the origin of the scene (0,0,0) because different objects might be broken into pieces but intended to align that way. Some other options could be:
                                          - Import to selection as you described above
                                          - Import to center of current view
                                          - Not at import but have additional controls for “move to this object” or “center to my view” type of functionality.

                                          Lots possible here, and none of it is particularly hard, so more understanding the why you want this.
