I am using Dimensions to create a realist photograph of a branded box using a packaging template I have created in Illustrator.
This needs to be very high quality and resolution as these images are being used on the web on a retail site and where buyers have an option to zoom in, however when I render my design and open it up in Photoshop if i zoom in the image is very pix-elated and becomes blurry.
The idea if using dimensions is to cut the photography process out - ideally I am trying to recreate a pack shot image with a white back ground and just the items packaging (this being a branded box) for the packaging design I have already created in illustrator. Is this possible and I am having problems doing so?

Hi Emily, not sure exactly what you're looking for here. Generally speaking if you want a higher resolution image you just need to render it in a higher resolution. If you render a small image then zoom in it will become blurry/pixelated. That's just how raster images work.
In Dimension you can change the render size in Design Mode.
For example, if you need a 300 dpi print at 10" that would be 3000 pixels. You'll need to figure out the best pixel size you need for your particular project and then change the canvas to match.

the web tends to = low rez | quality images because size is the main issue... esp on mobiles but if you can link an example web page with the type of system you want to make that would help figgure out if Dimension is the right tool for this job
I am also trying to get hires images out of my Dimensions document, which is 2048 x 2000 px at 300 dpi. I managed to get the 3D artwork right but the placed (vectorized) Illustrator files (text in outlines) on the model do not look sharp or crisp at all 😞 despite having rendered in high quality (32 bit psd file). Having put all the effort in the 3D model I hope we can get better results out of this — really need hires for roll-up print production.
Below I have attached final rendering in jpg format + screen images of my Dimensions document.
The resolution of the canvas is different from the model and has zero effect on the way decal images rendor
thank you for your quick reply 👍
I am trying to figure out but what do you exactly mean with 'The resolution
of the canvas is different from the model and has zero effect on the way
decal images render'…
The placed Illustrator artwork (vector outlines) on the model should always
result in a sharp image, no?
Can you explain, please?

No vector = more work at the other end which is why we still need Jpg on the internet
If you want to share the files I'll have a look fixing it
thank you for your help!
it would be great 🙂 if you could have a look at my files.
We get more and more of these projects so it is important to do it in the
You can find my Dimensions file and the placed Illustrator objects via this
Placing ai Illustrator on a 3D Dimensions mockup does not seem to work. In
my experiment yesterday I have made 1200 dpi jpg versions of all ai files
and now I have perfect renderings. So rule number one is: *do not place ai
Illustrator files on models in Dimensions but use hires jpg instead.*
You can see the result of my rendering (at 100 %) in the screenshot below.

yes a Jpg file format auto adds white
I wanted to use a transparant file placed on top of a colored coffee cup. Illustrator ai file import in Dimension doesn't work, it will still be jaggy. What does work great is a transparant high res PNG file. so, you dont need to use a white background and/or a jpg file.
