  1. Sculpting

    If there's a way to create a sculpt mode where the model was more like clay that would be extremely useful for more organic shapes. A great example of what I'm talking about is Mudbox. It would probably need to support tablets first. It would also be great to have this feature connected to CC brushes etc.

  2. Make each object a new layer in PSD, instead all on just 1 single layer.

    All objects on a canvas are rendered as one PSD layer only. This is not good, pardon me, but it can be annoying to work with the selection tool for each and every object and detail when wanting to change sth in Photoshop.

    (I noticed there was this topic already, yet closed for insuffucient support, I can hardly imagine that there are only two people requesting it.)

    I think that one was closed because there was no description confirming that it was talking about layers in the PSD render. Your thoughts are much clearer! :)

    This is something we’ve heard frequently actually and we are investigating.

  3. Improve Import for .mtl Materials

    I just started digging around in Project Felix and it is kind of a huge time safer for me, as I often have to put 3D Models into pictures for clients, also for animating them further in AE and in Cinema 4D this takes a lot of time - BUT I often get the 3D models with an .mtl Material or just a Cinema 4D file.

    It would be great to be able to import those models with their materials right into Project Felix.

    Hello! We actually already do this (to some degree)!

    If you have an .obj with an .mtl and associated textures Felix will read it and import the textures along with the file. However, there are definitely some bugs with this, we haven’t caught all the cases by any means. We do a conversion into our own material system, so the materials aren’t a direct 1-1.

    What would be great is if you can submit a ticket with your file for testing. The more use cases we have, the better we can explore and fix all the cases from different programs. It would be for testing only, not distributed or used in any way. If not possible, that’s okay too, we’re working on it, but examples help!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Background Artificial Sky & Cloud Controls

    In many cases it is easy to find a good exterior photo to use as a background. However finding photos with perfect sky is problematic. If you could add composting controls for sky and clouds it would make the compostition interactive.

  10. Ambient Occlusion

    Please add two sliders for ambient occlusion, both size and intensity. The ability to add this to renderings of exterior building facades will make the renderings "pop".

  12. Warp Properties for image (decal)

    It would be nice to have warp functions in the properties for images. I'm trying to wrap a coffee cup and the image curves upward and doesn't join at the two ends. If you could key stone the image it would accommodate for the conical nature of the cup shape.

  14. 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

  15. Gradient options for background

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

  18. Tradeshow kits? Yes, please!

    I think this would be great for tradeshow booth mockups. If there were stall and booth kits in here I'd be using them right now to prep for CES.

  19. Expanded Material Types

    Felix currently supports standard material types like wood, glass, metal, and plastics. Additional types could include effects and complex surfaces such as iridescent, glowing, skin, and layered materials like car paint.

  20. Show HDRI IBL in Background

    When you apply a spherical HDRI image to the background, there should be an option to unfreeze the image so when you orbit, the background changes with it.

    additionally, if an HDRI is chosen, it would be handy to have sliders in the options bar that allow you to change the image rotation, and scale. See attached concept
