  2. Export for ARKit

    HI,

    Sure it is on the radar, but exporting for Apple's ARKit would be a good move.

  4. Cloth Assembly and Simulation

    I've recently worked in two Design Projects that involved cloth of some sorts. One of them, that was a complete challenge and, though it won 1rst Prize in a National Design Contest, the cloth component still looks horrible on the renders.

    Trying to model the cloth part and get it together with the SolidWorks wooden parts was the biggest challenge here. I had to do it manually, polygon by polygon, within the time limit, and figure out a way to get everything together.

    Would there be any possibility of modelling cloth physics on Felix and allow for an easier manipulation…

    At some point we do plan to have cloth functionality in Dimension. I’m updating the status here because we’ve actually got some progress on our physics engine with our first physics feature (drop to ground) and have some more in the works. So this has matured enough I feel like I can publically say we’ll do cloth at some point! It’s probably still a while out though. I’ll update when we’re closer to starting work on that area particularly.

  5. 3D Mouse support

    I have a SpaceNavigator from 3Dconnexion and I'd like to use it for camera movement

  6. Preview UV Map

    I'd like to be able to preview the UV Maps of the object and do some changes to the UV map.

  8. Add a label to an invisible object

    It would be great to be able to add a label to an object that can become invisible when you are creating packaging for an object that exists in a background photo with contents that you need to show, i.e. a glass jar.

  9. Animate Between View Bookmarks

    Animation between bookmarks with ease-in / ease-out animation control and video output. I'm using SketchUp to create my modles and output video clips but that isn't what SketchUp is intended for so they aren't listening to my requests.

  10. Render Pause Button

    I could see it being beneficial to have a pause button on the rendering process.

  11. 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.

  12. 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?

  13. Importing Gif and exporting Gif animations

    We can add creative feature and allow to place or use as materials GIF files (Gif animations) ...also exporting them as Gif Animation

  14. Live Updating Material Thumbnails

    After changing the properties of a material the thumbnail in the document doesn't change to reflect the new colors or look.

    Also, after loading a model or saving and reloading the Felix .asd file the thumbnails all turn into "?" icons.

    Building a way for the application to show live thumbnails of the current materials instead of a static picture will help with these issues!

  15. Metal edge reflectance

    Dimensions would benefit from proper edge reflectance for metals. Right now once something is fully metallic, the reflection color is uniform without regard to incidence angle. But that's now how metals are in the real world, the metal's color shifts to a desaturated version of the primary color. This is something many applications do. the edge reflectance follows the fresnel equation with something like 1.3 IOR for curve shape. Without this metals look flat and incorrect to the eye of someone who does 3D work and knows about this physical property.

  18. Photogrammetry Support

    photogrammetry software like" Photomodeler", "Agisoft PhotoScan" and "Acute3D" were still not making the 3Dmodel from multicamera positions as accurate and with high resolution as I needed it to be.
    Perhaps Adobe can make a difference ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparisonofphotogrammetry_software
    I am using 9 Nikon D800 camera's to do lenticular, timefreeze and 3D modeling . No accurate and easy software ( affordable and powerfull ) software yet tried that meets demands.
    Currently using twitter Pro in After Affects for inter-camera calculations. A 3D model instead of rotoscoping front from background would be helpful too to get AE and Twixtor Pro working…

  19. 3D Painting link between Felix & Ps

    Adobe could really take Felix to the next level, by adding the ability to paint on a mesh with UV's in Photoshop and communicate with Felix, by painting diffuse, spec, normal map then render within Felix send it back to Photoshop for the composite.

    Great suggestion. You can currently do 3D painting in Photoshop and then export the model as an .obj file so I think the key here with this request is to have a more live-linked experience. Could you talk more about what you’d want there?

  20. Adobe XD Integration

    Is it possible to integrate it with XD files? It would be very useful to make some Iphone X mockup using images from my Adobe XD.
