  1. Camera Lens options

    I'm doing renders and wanting to emulate a 50mm Canon FD lens that I have in my kit. It occurred to me that Lightroom has all of the details on every one of these lenses AND the distortion/vignetting that those lenses apply to the image.

    Proposal:

    Add lens options to the camera feature to enable us to replicate existing lenses. This would include the option of adding lens distortions (this is especially valuable in renders with high-dof where rendered objects are out of focus and near the edge of the frame where barrel distortion would change how the focus appears) …

  2. 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.

  3. Support for Gradients in Color Fields

    It would be interesting to be able to degrade (gradient) in the background instead of a single color!

  4. 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.

  5. Cut Tool to Split Models

    There needs to be a way to cut or splice the model to create points that can be stretched, rotated or moved from the object separate from the rest of it.

  6. 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…

  7. 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?

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. Render Pause Button

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

  12. render to EXR - render passes

    It would very good to have the option to render to EXR with multiple passes. Compositing in this way gives a great deal of flexibility in post over the reflections, color, light /shadows, specularity, transparency..

    It would also be very interesting to see the render output directly linked to Photoshop, premiere/ aftereffects.

    In other applications rendering is not linked to the post processing tools - which makes it much slower to update layers and much less likely that re-rendering or additional changes will happen in the retracing tool.

  13. Set size of decals

    The most difficult part in my work with Dimension is to manage the UVmap: even if the face model and the Decal were exactly the same sizes, the textures never corresponded exactly. It would have helped me to be able to indicate the size in cm of a each decal.

  14. Render Queue (Different files)

    I saw the update that allows rendering mutliple saved views. This is a good start...
    Imagine a "Media Encoder" equivalent for Dimension. Save multiple views from multiple files, and save to a render queue. Let that run over night to chomp away at these big renders.

  15. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. import glTF/glb files

    Could it be possible to the support of glTF/glb format in the list?

    I guess that this new file format will become the next 'JPEG" for 3D.
    It's already supported natively on Windows 10 and will become one of the favorite format to be able to be imported in Office365.

    So editing thes files in Dimension could be mandatory soon or later
