“Based on feedback from users of the Project Felix beta, a tool made for graphic designers to composite 2D and 3D assets, Adobe has updated the beta to include a number of new features and enhancements, including:

  • Render progress – A progress bar is now displayed during rendering along with an elapsed time counter.
  • Drag and drop import – You can now import models and images from the desktop or an open explorer window.
  • Height indicator – When transforming a selection, you can now see a height indicator, which displays the distance between the reference point and the ground plane.”
