    • Import Solidworks 3D File Formats

      In my company, product designers usually render from Solidworks, and we have to wait for product samples to complete ad photography.

      I was hoping Felix could cut out the middle man, but today I found out that Felix supports no file types Solidworks can export. It kind of defeats the purpose of the program for my role.

      If we could support any of these file types (obviously excluding PS, PDF's, and JPEGS). We want this specifically to take prototype models to photography level.

        • Import and Extrude Illustrator Vectors

          I am a Data Visualization Designer, i often use Maya to import my Illustrator files to then extrude and create charts in 3D. Would be cool if down the road i could import illustrator components into Felix so i could just ditch Maya and stay within the Adobe cloud. Love the ease of Felix so far.

            Love all the discussion here, you guys have some great ideas and I appreciate you sharing the various workflows you’re looking for. This idea is specifically about importing vectors and extruding them into 3D shapes. If you want to vote up placing images on the surface (decals/labels) please vote up that idea: http://projectfelix.uservoice.com/forums/552559/suggestions/17421622

            I’d love to get some more information on your desires and needs for extrusion!

            Simply adding depth to create the 3D shape or also beveling the corners to make round edges? Would you want a profile feature to define more unique corners shapes (such as the lip of a table which might have curves and sharp edges in tiers)?

            I’d also love to know about the actual meshes that are created. For example, if you bring in text would it be better if the text was all one ‘object’ that moves together or each letter broken into…

          • embed into inDesign

            Allow Felix 3D models to embed into inDesign for .epub output!

              • 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.

                • History or Revert feature

                  A revert feature would be great in this app - just to provide some recourse when experimenting with lighting and material properties etc.. Learning by trial and error I am quiting quite a lot in order to get to a previous point [ultimate would be a history like Photoshop of course!]

                    It would be nice if Undo worked for the Orbit Tool.

                      Thanks for the feedback! This is something we’re considering adding to the main “undo” history or into it’s own “camera undo” history. I’d love peoples thoughts on whether they’d want it to be part of the primary Cmd/Ctrl + Z undo/redo or under a different keybind for separate recording?

                    • Integrate with After Effects

                      Integrate in some way with after effects so we can use 3d in motion rather than just in stills.

                      • ARKit

                        HI,

                        Sure it is on the radar, but exporting for Apple's ARKit would be a good move.

                        • 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!

                          • Place Objects on Background Walls/Planes

                            It would be awesome to have an option to delve deeper into the raster background image—say of an office or room—by being able to place models on the wall with the shadows/lighting interacting as it would hanging/leaning there.

                            • 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.

                              • Background Rendering

                                Ideally I would like to be able to work and render at the same time. So consider have a separate tab or window for the render. This way I can render high quality in the background, while working on a new model, scene, etc in the foreground.

                                • 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

                                      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?

                                    • Export "textures" and "materials" to edit in Ps

                                      I use applications like Substance Painter, Maya, VRAY to render 3d Objects that can then be used in compositing tools. One area of weakness for Substance Painter for game developers is the ability to "export" as a tga, psd or png fie the texture applied to the model once the effects are applied. It would be a useful feature to have in Felix so could tweak the material in Photoshop then reapply to the object.

                                      • Add Image to 3D Scene

                                        I love that this is built for designers with image backgrounds, but as a photographer this could be huge for compositing. So basically I need the reverse. I need to be able to take a masked layer (say a masked out runner) and throw them into this scene and have refraction (glass) or what not to interact with the masked layer of the runner. so the ability to bring masked layers of photos into the scene to render out with objects is what I'd love to have! I currently have to do this in C4D

                                        • .fbx file import capability

                                          I like the idea of using this application to create quick conceptuals from rough block outs of geometry from an outside 3D program. Throw on some shaders, quick HDRI from selection and render. Not sure if we can import custom obj or fbx from outside 3D programs such as Maya? Very limited if we can only use adobe stock.

                                          Also would like to know how to delete materials from the document panel.
                                          Just don't like seeing materials stack up if they aren't being used like useless junk layers.

                                          Nifty idea here though if further refined! Hope it can use it…
