Thread: CC3 Feature Suggestions

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Post CC3 Feature Suggestions

    Note: this thread is not about UI, easy of use or working methods, just the availability of certain tools and functions. I'm entirely interested in end results.

    What features in Photoshop, GIMP. etc. are you missing in CC3? Are their particular effects for example from Photoshop you'd like to see in CC3? What can you produce in other software that you can't in CC3?

    To get you started:
    1. I'd like to see some kind of height field generator, perhaps integrated from FT.
    2. Improved PNG export resolution.

    Glad to see this post! I'm stickying it.

    I'd like to see an easier way to pan...perhaps having a cached "render" of the map that is overlayed whenever you go into pan mode so that when you pan you can see the maps details without having to deal with the ghost pan effect...that may just be me though.

    From photoshop, I think a more useful layers dialog/tab would be VERY helpful. In photoshop you can see a little thumbnail of what is on a layer, and very easily turn it on/off and thats integrated into the core of the interface as a primary function. To see that available in CC3 for both layers and sheets would be VERY nice.

    Not sure if this is correct or not, but I know when I am doing dungeons and want to draw an angled box.....I can't.

    I can draw a box, and then rotate it, but requires a few steps. Something like the House Command from from CD3 but for simply making boxes that aren;t always straight X/Y.

    Ooo, and use the Centre Mouse to zoom in an out! That would be soooooooooo useful!

    Dynamic Pan is an option - whatever you do don't do it with Effects on or on a large map. It comes with the CAD engine, but we've disabled it by default.

    Select Tools >> Options.
    Select Use Middle Mouse Button for Zooming.
    Click the middle mouse button - now you can pan.
    Hold the left button down and move up and down to zoom in and out.
    Right click for options or to cancel.

    Caching a render of the map for panning would be very memory intensive - it could be an option and happen in the background, I supposed. Usually people zoom extents then window to get where they want to go.

    I think overall unifying the drawing conventions added by CD3 and DD3, etc, would be a good idea overall.

    Hi,
    I'd like to see the ability in CC3 to zoom into a view, save that view as a seperate map, and them be able to work on that map in more detail.
