What’s new in Adobe Dimension CC.
Enhanced Illustrator and Photoshop integration
Import AI and PSD files and copy/paste raster and vector artwork right into your Dimension scenes. You can even import Illustrator and Photoshop artboards to use as materials, textures and more.
Multiple graphic layers
Place multiple images, logos and other graphics on your 3D models as layers. Each one can have unique material properties and settings.
Support for more 3D file formats
Dimension now supports Autodesk FBX, STL, SketchUp SKP and OBJ formats so you can easily work with files created in other 3D modelling apps.
Use bookmarks to efficiently render multiple saved views in a single Dimension file.
Get faster interaction and render preview times with the new native renderer.
3D scene publishing
Once you’ve created a 3D scene, publish it to a 3D web-based viewer and generate a unique URL for sharing.
Canvas and render size print controls
The Dimension canvas now offers familiar 2D zooming, panning and resizing controls. Use print controls to easily adjust the size of your canvas based on physical units and print resolution settings.
And so much more
Also includes: Improved depth of field controls, camera Undo/Redo, a Sampler tool and improved Match Image environment lights.
Enhanced Photoshop integration
Compositing workflows for product shots and mockups are faster and simpler than ever. Automatically send any image from Dimension to Adobe Photoshop CC and see your saved edits reflected in your scene.
Alignment and snap guides
Now it’s easier to precisely place objects in a scene. Snap 3D models to the ground with the Move tool and choose the exact rotation of objects positioned at an angle.
Work smarter with Move, Rotate and Scale tools that are better, brighter and faster. Select multiple objects by drawing a marquee rectangle.
Access colour palettes saved to Adobe Creative Cloud Libraries from right inside Dimension. This makes it a cinch to maintain brand colour consistency across your designs.
Improved customised 3D model import
Import a wider range of OBJ files into Dimension. Automatically generate UV maps and normals or resolve errors in the existing UVs to use assets easily.
And so much more
Also includes: Performance and stability improvements, re-worked depth of field and focus controls, better Match Image perspective matching and more.

3D graphic placement
Drag and drop a logo or graphic onto a 3D model to see how your design concept will look in real life. Experiment with different layouts — as you move your graphic around, it will maintain the same angle and orientation of your model.

Automated image matching
Select your background image and Dimension automatically sets the light, camera, perspective and aspect ratio using Adobe Sensei. When you choose an outdoor image, Dimension detects the direction and strength of the sun and automatically lights your object accordingly.
Familiar tools and shortcuts
Work smoothly with an interface similar to other Creative Cloud apps, such as Photoshop CC and Illustrator CC. Familiar interactions include file organisation, a colour picker, drag and drop, selection targeting and more.
Multilayered PSD renders
Get a rich set of layers in your PSD exports, giving you more capabilities and control for post-processing 3D composites. For example, easily replace your background image, change lighting or recolor objects without having to rerender.
Material editing controls
Control the placement and appearance of textures for your materials with offset, rotate and tile options. For example, adjust the direction of the grain on a wooden object to get your desired visual effect.
Shadow and reflection adjustment
Edit your ground plane properties to adjust the reflections and shadows.
Adobe Stock assets
Get hundreds of free Adobe Stock assets that have been optimised for Dimension, accessible right inside the app. Customise your scene with thousands of 3D models, lights and materials.
Real-time render preview
Dimension shows you a preview of what your final render will look like in real time, so you can get the look you want before taking the time to render. Experiment with different materials, lighting and more to see how it looks as you go.
Quickly learn the basics and benefits of working with 3D. Get to know the different tools in Dimension without leaving the app. Relevant information surfaces when you need it.
Camera view bookmarks
Save specific camera positions and perspectives. As you design your scene, you can set a default view that you can return to easily.
Camera depth of field controls
Control the focus settings for your camera to simulate realistic blur effects.
Use Adobe Capture CC to generate physically based materials from any image you take with your mobile device. Access your saved materials directly in Dimension via Creative Cloud Libraries and apply them to your 3D objects.
V-Ray photorealistic rendering
Dimension partners with Chaos Group, a world leader in computer graphics technology, to integrate its industry-leading V-Ray engine for the highest quality photorealistic rendering.
