    Our first formats are .fbx and .stl, we're ironing out some bugs with those first. .iges and .stp would be next and I'll let you know when we've started. In the mean time please keep sending your files! It will help us make it more robust when we start dev and less buggy when we start prerelease testing!

    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.

    Hi Chelsi! Unfortunately this platform doesn't have editing or adding once the post is made. You can just re-pose since this is a new idea and I'll merge this conversation into the new post. Apologies for the hassle!

    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!

    Hello everyone! Sadly this issue has been persistent for a few years and while it usually only affects a small number of files, it’s different causes each time it comes up.

    Please send your file that won’t open to us so we can investigate to tickets@adobedimension.com.

    If the file is small (<20 MB) you can attach it directly.
    If it is a larger file, please send via a share link to Dropbox, Google Drive, WeTransfer, OneDrive, or another file sharing platform.

    Thank you for the example files everyone! It's been very helpful. We've isolated at least one issue and are continuing to evaluate the sample files being sent in to see if there are any other edge cases. Please continue to e-mail in files!

    We have isolated one cause of the issue when the file is saved with "\" in the name. However, we believe there may be more causes and are requesting you send your dimension scene file (.dn) for us to take a look. Thank you!

    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.

    AdminJeanette Mathews (Product Manager, Dimension) commented  · 

    @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.

    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.

    Hello everyone! Just wanted to say we are starting work on some lighting features this year. While I don’t know the full scope of what we’ll be able to release this year yet, some areas we’re exploring are:

    More directional lights (like the sun) with a lightpainting interface to create custom environment lights.

    Improvements to our Match Image feature to be able to detect and generate multiple indoor lights.

    Improvements to glow materials to make them more expressive.

    Additions of haze, environmental atmosphere, etc.

    Last, but not least, actual 3D placed light objects.

    I’ll update here when we have a more scoped vision or a prototype for testing! :)

    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!

    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!

    Hey all! We’re taking a look at adding extrusion to Dimension later this year. We’re combining this with a text tool and hope to support vector/text extrusion later this year. I’ll update here as we progress!

    Dimension does not yet support vectors for 3D objects or extruding, lathing, lofting, or other modeling techniques at this time. This idea is for support for implementing it so please feel free to leave specific comments on what you want to do with extruded vectors and why it's important for your workflow.

    Tiago, if you have ideas that you think would round out the program to meet those needs, we'd love to hear them. It is primarily a renderer first at the moment. The creation aspect is something we're interested in, but we have no commitment to yet.

    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?
