    Not yet. You'll see the status change here when we've started work on something or have implemented it. We are reviewing this currently for our next release though.

    Yeah black is likely a normals issue or a UV issue. Great suggestion and thanks for providing the information!

    - No texture scaling features yet, but there is a request for it if you want to go vote it up!

    We plan to enable CC Libraries saving for materials, just not done yet!

    For the sampler workflow, after you apply the material it will be applied as linked. In the actions panel you can unlink the material to create a copy which you can edit the properties of offset/orientation for each object that you unlink the material for.

    @Angela, you can use the Sampler tool to sample and reuse materials in a single scene. Sampling and using a material this way will create a linked material so if you edit it in one place it is edited in other places as well.

    We think we can certainly expose this functionality better as well as improve with an actual material save/export for multiple document usage.

    @No
    It's pretty high! This site doesn't have a 'ranking' of priority but we're looking into something for this year.

    We do have Libraries integrated right now (it's a tab next to assets panel). We just don't have the ability to save/write content to Libraries yet.

    The last status update on this was some time ago, so I wanted to refresh it! As you are no doubt aware we ended up not making this change, as previously stated.

    We’re still reviewing what we want to do here. With translucency, the renderer bounces lights around the scene, takes information like what color it bounced off of and that’s why our translucent objects have some information baked into the transparency.

    Just turning off the BG transparency is pretty easy, but making translucent things render without that ‘baked in’ environment information is a big challenge. We’re working on some other areas with higher priority, but continue to keep this topic top of mind.

    @Thrill - I'm sorry can you go into more detail here? This question/comment wasn't really asked or answered well. You can turn your background off in Dimension if you want to render it transparent.

    - Go to Design Mode
    - In the Scene panel select the Environment
    - Turn off the checkbox next to "Background" in the properties.

    Your render will now have a transparent background.

    Hello! If you save as a layered .psd the transparency of the 3D content is preserved on a separate layer from the background image or color. Is that the functionality you were looking for?

    I'll say that creation is essential to a creative tool for creative people. That said, modeling is a big topic and not a simple task. There are also a ton of existing modeling tools so if we're going to do creation we're going to make sure we do it right and different than what's done already. There is a large section of ideas and suggestions you can vote and comment on for anything that particularly interests you.

    Hello all! While it’s a bit too early to give specifics, I wanted to say interop with After Effects is planned.

    I’ve seen some users doing it already by exporting the 3D object from Dimension in .obj and other formats, then importing to Ae and plugins like Video CoPilot.

    A more direct integration is something we’d love to do!

    There's nothing particular planned yet. We are starting to look into animation workflows but a lot of this year is being focused on refining what we have and expanding materials and graphics, performance, etc. I expect we'll get into this more next year!

    At the moment we don't support exporting 3D models. You can export images for use in Photoshop or After Effects in render mode

    Just as a note, RAM, VRAM, and GPU have little effect on render times as our renderer is CPU based. We are actively working on improving the rendering speeds in many ways, including looking at utilizing hardware more efficiently.

    Looks like that got merged into this one: https://feedback.adobedimension.com/forums/552559/suggestions/17436484

    There are quite a few topics on lighting and yours has actually several ideas all in one post.

    There is no way to turn off shadows separately from light at this time. If you're trying to make something 'floating' you'll need to move the objects up into the air away from the ground. Functionality for ground shadows is something we're looking into right now!

    Great suggestions. :) It would be nice to know how this would impact your workflow or what it would allow you to do.

    We are still considering an in-app overlay for keyboard shortcuts, but in the mean time we have added a web article (available from the Learn panel) and are working on customizable keyboard shortcuts which will list all shortcuts in the preferences.

    Thanks for sharing! Images are always helpful and I've put in a request to allow in-line images or comment-based image attachments.

    We can definitely do better with the light and are actively looking at it. :)

    When you have the magic wand tool active, look just above the canvas for the tool options. One of the options for the wand is Tolerance. You can set it to tiny, small, medium, or large selections. Try reducing the tolerance size.

    Not at this time. If you're subscribed to an idea you'll get an e-mail notification when the status changes. We usually do status updates a few times a year, when we're done planning for a release we mark new ideas as planned, when work begins we mark them as started so you know we're working on it, and when it ships we mark it as complete so you know the build is available.

    Ahhh I see! Thank you for the details. We don't support true isometric cameras yet. At the moment you can control the Field of View slider in the camera properties to get various intensities on your zooming effect. Give that a try and let me know if it meets your needs!

    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.

    I love the AR/VR discussions. It's really getting into interacting with your content in the reality in which you'd view it, which is awesome. I can't speak too much to details yet, but there's a lot going on with AR/VR strategy at Adobe. We definitely see an AR/VR editing mode, AR/VR outputs, etc, as part of our story, but I'm not sure when that story will start to evolve.

    Agreed, for Ps and Ai they work really well. Those applications have a lot of pallets. Some of the newer applications are trying to have less pallets that are more contextual, for example a single properties panel instead of properties, info, color, character, paragraph, etc and a single assets panel instead of color, swatches, materials, etc.

    For example, within Felix, are there any particular pallets you'd want to reorganize, rearrange, undock, and why?

    Today Dimension allows you to queue multiple camera views in Render mode. We’re working to expand this system to multiple configurations of one scene as well as working on automation features for rendering multiple documents.

    Will provide more information as we get further along!

    A render queue allows you to store multiple renders in a list and then render them all back to back. This could be done from saved camera views in a single scene or across multiple document files.

    Thanks for the suggestion! We have 2 finger swipe as zooming forward/backward right now, so you can use that gesture in the mean time.
