    Yes, we are an ingestion app, so we plan to support all the major file formats in time. DAE is a good format but it's wildly inconsistent between authors and platforms. We kind of hate DAE too. ;) That's why we made .ASD as both our file format and object format. Because each format has it's own prerequisites for support, it's best if you post each file format you'd be interested in as an idea or vote on the existing ones (IE, .dae, .fbx, .step, .stl). That way we can track interest in each type.

    At the moment we only support .obj file import. There is a bug in the import menu which is not properly filtering to only supported file types, sincere apologies for the confusion!

    Awesome, thanks for the additional details on your workflows. We're working on implementing a first pass (hah) of render passes which will probably include object and material ID passes with selections made through Photoshop but I definitely see the benefit of the workflow you mentioned, David. I've used that process a few times myself, especially when working with things like hair that aren't easy to recreate the selections in Photoshop. The goal is definitely to support both of these eventually.

    AdminJeanette Mathews (Product Manager, Dimension) commented  · 

    How do you set it up so that the objects are separated? Do you render out more of a material ID pass and then make selections from the ID pass (material ID pass, light pass, reflection pass)?

    Hi again Scott! Can you clarify when you say open and edit a texture in Felix? Do you mean having 2D painting, layering, etc directly in Felix? Since we're part of Creative Cloud would an "Edit in Photoshop" possibly give you that same control (if not more)? Is there a reason you'd prefer it in Felix or in Photoshop? Which? Why?

    AdminJeanette Mathews (Product Manager, Dimension) commented  · 

    Interesting. Photoshop has a built in UV viewer, so you can already open any .obj file format model as a 3D layer and then turn on the UV view when you open the texture but you think it would be more helpful to have Felix send the UV layout as an image?

    Hello everyone. Excited to say we’ve started some investigations for adding text to Dimension later this year. We’re initially looking at 3D text but may also include 2D text or decal text in the future. I’ll update here as we progress!

    Hello! There is no text tools or typography kit yet, but it's definitely something we want to explore. I'd love to know specific tools and functionality you'd be looking for and what type of workflows you're interested in. Merging this into an existing topic!

    AdminJeanette Mathews (Product Manager, Dimension) commented  · 

    Great suggestion. It'd be great to know what types of things you'd like to do with text when you say 'flat'. Do you want it to be as part of the background or floating on the foreground or in the 3D scene?

    AdminJeanette Mathews (Product Manager, Dimension) commented  · 

    3D Text could be fun! What types of features would you like with that, do you think? Any examples of the types of 3D text/type you'd like to make?

    At the moment there are no render settings. We have some work to do still as we're CPU rendering only. Definitely things that we're looking into. :)

    Yes, I understand the premise for your request! What types of things would you expect to be usable across different objects though? For example, 'selections' probably couldn't be reused as selection is different for every model. We probably could save things like "apply material, edit material properties", etc. But I'm not sure if that's the best way to approach that. A paintbucket tool might be more efficient.

    So what types of specific actions would you want to use across models?
    - Selections?
    - Material applications?
    - Transformations (rotate/move/scale)?

    Can you go into more detail about how you'd like to make history into an action? Since the history stack is constantly changing I'd love to know what type of reusability you'd expect.

    We don't have an exact list of file formats yet, but the ones we're considering first are .dae, .stl and .fbx as they are widely used and will allow us to start supporting some more advanced features.

    A unified 3D format is something the entire industry is working towards, Pixar's USD and Microsoft 3MF are examples of this.

    Great suggestions. Can definitely see how that would be helpful for orienting and arranging things.

    Do you mean turning off the visualization of the active render?

    I think you can upload video attachments right here!

    A live link preview would be very useful! Would you want to link via local saved files or through CC Libraries smart objects?

    AdminJeanette Mathews (Product Manager, Dimension) commented  · 

    Hi Santraj! Thanks for the suggestion - I've split this into two posts so we can track them easier. :)

    In regards to Live PSD Preview can you talk more about how you'd want to use this? Do you want to have a background image that you can edit in PS, save the document and have Felix update it in real time?

    For the first release we only support .obj file format import.

    Since we're in our early days there's a lot of optimization we can do to make our rendering much faster and provide those cool features for customizing the render. Assuming we had all that would you still want a 3rd party renderer? If so, why?

    It would be great to know what you want to do with those tools - do you want more traditional 2D drawing tools on top of the 3D in a layer or do you want to draw and create shapes in 3D?

    Hi @edsager - can you clarify on this? This conversation is about the render preview screen which is in the design mode already. Are you asking to tear off the entire design mode screen as well and have that rendering while you work in design mode? Might be a different feature request ;D

    Thanks for the suggestion! Can I ask for a bit more detail? Would you want to define an area of the screen and have that keep rendering even if you change your camera? Or just like a quick “Show me this area” then it goes away?

    AdminJeanette Mathews (Product Manager, Dimension) commented  · 

    Thanks for the suggestion! I can see how that could be useful to see a specific area instead of the whole thing.

    Great suggestion. I can see how this could be really powerful for producing high quantities of renders. Thanks for expanding on why you would find it useful!

    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?

    Quickly select everything in an area by dragging the cursor in the viewport to create a selection area.
