  1. Save custom render settings

    It would be great if I could save a custom render preset that overrides the camera size default, CPU threads and number of samples instead of having to manually type all those options every time I want to make a render.

    Thank you.

    This should be relatively easy to add custom render setting presets! However camera size is not currently attached to the render settings since you can do multiple resolutions at the same time with different cameras. We will evaluate!

  2. Support Windows Server installation to allow Cloud Workstation on AWS Nimble

    Hi Guys

    With lockdowns and working from home becoming the normal, studios and artists are moving their workstations to the cloud and connect from any low key laptop or computer. I routinley work like this, especially that as an indie artist it wouldn't make sense to invest in tens of thousands to purchase several RTX cards machine and instead I utilise the cloud to pay for what I use only when I am using it. The options on the cloud are much better of course.

    To that extent I use AWS Accelerted Computing instances, these are Xeon workstations with 1,…

  3. Non perspective (camera) view

    Sometimes it's very handy (for example when placing objects) to have non perspective (camera) 2D views. Front, back left, right, top and bottom view can give a perfect view of the situation. Also for product and architectural images it can be very nice to render them in a non perspective view.

  4. Turntable Rendering

    It would be absolutely amazing if a turntable render feature could be added. Where you could select either 9 / 18 / 36 / 72 Frames and have the camera auto rotate around a center point of the object and render out each view.

    This is very useful for interactive web development, for clients to view products in a viewport from various angles.

  5. Animated camera movement/Objects.

    Im not looking to create a movie but it would most definitely be a welcomed feature to bring more life to pieces. simple camera movement along a rail or animated zoom, even animated bobbing and resizing of objects

  6. UV editing tools

    When you import a file from a CAD file, there are not necessarily UV's or those come from the parameterization of the nurbs.

    in a number of cases these UV's will not be suitable.
    The built-in auto-generation tool can help then but again there are cases where the job won't be perfect.

    exporting these UVs for rework in Photoshop is useful, but we would have thought that some additional tools could be integrated into Stager. At least to "sew" some "islands" in order to better master the continuity of the mapping. The goal is to be able to manage a…

  7. Render every layer as a psd / png file or batch .ssg files

    Hi, I have different bottles in one file, the only difference is their label.
    All lights, cameras, and other stuff are the same.

    Now I have to press render for the bottle "Label A" then click on the eye symbol to deactivate the layer, then click on the eye for the bottle with "Label B", press render, and so on...

    In PS you can select your layers and right-click "quick export as png", it saves every layer as a png file with the layer name.

    Watching render ~50 bottles in 5 languages with a lot of clicks :(
    Did I…

  8. Preview SBSAR Materials in Library

    Currently there is no way to preview SBSAR materials in the library. Would be nice to be able to build a custom library of materials and not second guess grey balls.

  9. Wireframe Camera

    It would be very interesting to have an option in the camera to leave only the wires on display, either with the function fully visible and hidden. Similar to other 3d programs. It helps a lot when you have a lot of assets or technical stuff. Thanks.

  10. Save Object Visibility and Position in New Camera

    It would be great if you could setup a "scene" for each camera added.
    For instance if you were able to have 10 objects but in the first camera you only show 5 objects and the other 5 are hidden; and vise versa for the second camera; also in the second camera; if you change the position of the objects this should be captures.

    This will allow you to que render multiple scenes and objects all at once freeing up time. Having to be available to start each render is a bit of a pain when one has multiple projects…

  11. Vertex Color

    Vertex color
    Vertex color is a RGBA value that can be applied to any vertex on a mesh. Traditionally, this is used to add diffuse or emissive color to geometry, but with the advent of more powerful game engines and more complex shaders, vertex color can be used to do amazing things!

  12. Shifting camera view

    In some cases for architecture rendering it could be a great help to shift the cameras view -without tilting the cam or changing the eye level. In other apps you can choose a bigger view but mask out only the wanted view to render (save render time). I made some pics to let you understand from a photographers side. Real estate and architecture)
    Would appreciate it much!
    Have a nice day

  13. Stager available as a standalone subscription?

    Stager is not available as a standalone subscription. Compared to animation and game development, the presentation of products and architecture is far more based on ‘standard’ materials and there is less need of painting, wear and tear and develop of new materials (Pt, Sa and Ds).
    A Stager only subscription would be far more fitting for (small) product design & architecture studio's / freelancers and would be a welcome addition to the available subscriptions.

  14. CAD import for non-Enterprise plans

    Unfortunately CAD import only seems available in an Enterprise Plan, this seems to conflict with (small) product design & architecture studio's and freelancers all in need for a good materialization and render program, whereas traditional 3D studio already work with programs having those functions (Cinema 4D, Blender, 3DS Max etc).
    Off-course the Substance suite is big value for those studio’s too, but I would say (small) product design & architecture studio’s and freelancers have a bigger need for a program like Stager.
