We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
Adobe Dimensions will not load past the splash screen (attached screenshot). It used to load and run just fine, but hasn't for the last two updates including todays major update. Any ideas on what i can do to solve the issue? I can provide what ever information needed to diagnose the issue. Thanks in advance!
I have a mid 2010 Mac pro running Mojave. Version 1.1.1 runs, but not the newest version. I assume the processor doesn't meet the 2011 cutoff for Xeons, but it didn't before either, and the program ran fine for me, maybe because I exceeded all other system requirements. I checked the Activity monitor while Dimension was frozen on the startup screen, and it looks like two "helper" applications, plus multiple versions of the app were trying to load, each using memory.
It may be something with the new rendering engine, as that was the only major change in the application. Thank you for letting me know about the issue! If you can please give me your full hardware information that would be most helpful in us trying to reproduce the issue:
- Application Version (Can be located in the About screen)
- Graphics Card/VRAM
The application version is the latest version. Everything is updated via the cloud. I can't get to the about screen because the app won't open...
I'm running a pretty old system so that might have something to do with it.

All of us who have the 2010 and 2012 macs are going to have to get "metal"
compatible graphics cards. There is a list of known and potential cards
The following cards are known to be Metal-compatible:
- MSI Gaming Radeon RX 560 128-bit 4GB GDRR5
- SAPPHIRE Radeon PULSE RX 580 8GB GDDR5
- SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition
- NVIDIA Quadro K5000 for Mac
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Mac Edition
Apple also lists cards that "might also be compatible" with macOS Mojave:
- AMD Radeon RX 560
- AMD Radeon RX 570
- AMD Radeon RX 580
- AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100
- AMD Radeon RX Vega 56
- AMD Radeon RX Vega 64
- AMD Radeon Pro WX 9100
- AMD Radeon Frontier Edition
Most posts that I have read indicate that the RX 580 is the most popular
replacement right now, and I have seen at least one post about this Adobe
Dimension issue where the person indicated that they already have the RX
580 and are still having an issue.
I'm using a Mac Pro 2012 running Mac OS 10.14.2. My graphics card is a SAPPHIRE Radeon PULSE RX 580 8GB GDDR5 which the system reports as being Metal compatible. I can run other 3D software which requires Metal but Dimension CC 2 will not run. I had to downgrade to the previous version.
Can I assume that Dimension will officially no longer be compatible with Mac Pro Towers dating prior to 2011? Seeing this issue addressed in late 2018 and early 2019... I guess 6 months and a few updates later, it is what it is? I noticed that the official system requirements call for Intel Xeon / Core i5 "2011 or newer" processors. Is this a definitive requirement, or is Adobe still troubleshooting the compatibility with the 2010 machines and their processors?

Newest versions of Dimension freeze at launch screen. I've tried the oldest version. It launches and runs seemingly well but it cold shuts down the computer (like a power surge) as soon as I launch the "lighting" tab to apply to 3D objects. It acts like a kernel panic kinda thing.
It really is completely incomprehensible why the Xeon processors of the MacPro series up to 5.1 are not supported. These computers are still running in many agencies as the main computer, because they are still fast for many applications (even for Dimension!) And the architecture allowed by expansion and supplement to keep up with the times (graphics card, USB-C etc. ).
I've recently installed a Photoshop plug-in here that had issues with the Xeon processor - the small team of software developers provided me with a wonderfully working version within 2 days. THAT is what I call customer satisfaction ...
Who knows what Adobe will not support next, or simply be hired overnight (Muse would be such an example, though I never used it).
So if Dimension should get a broad agreement, then Adobe should also look more closely, what exactly in the agencies (yet) comes to regular use. Anyway, it's completely incomprehensible to me why my MacBook Pro late 2011 (for many things still fine, but for Dimension really too slow) is taken into account, and my much faster Mac Pro 2012 with 6 cores is not ...
I have the same problem and it's recuring since Felix only version 1 was running on my Mac
Same mac, same processor, same OS as the last poster.
Macpro 2010 3,46 2x6 core 48gb ram OS Sierra 10,13,6
I have tried several graphic cards (Nvidia and AMD)
680 Mac edition
Currently i am running a vega 56 8Go that is running smoothly with any other application.
I also tried upgrading to Mojave
I suspect tha the problem is not related to the graphice card or the os version
but maybe it's a problem related to the processor
Felix was not working , then dimension V1 was running ok and V2 and V3 are not running anymore.
Maybe one can ask : What is in common between Felix V2 and V3 but not V1 ?
@JMathews can we have any feedback on this. Dimension V3 is a great peace of software and i am tired of using my PC laptop to be able to use it. 2010-2012 Mac pro are still valuable computers and with a Vega 56 it's definitly up to date. We really need you to FIX this quick because it's been years and only V1 was working on my mac. Thanks for your consideration.
Same issue here, it shows the screen and nothing more happens, checking the monitor it shows as its working but not interface is showed

Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know we're investigating this. Can you let me know if you're on older Macs? Seems like it might be all 2010 Mac machines. If any of you are on newer Macs (can find in the Apple > About this mac... menu) that'd be a great data point for us.

I will have to upgrade my graphics card to get new osx anyway but only thinking of getting a comparable card with metal support, like Radeon RX 570 or 580.
The 580 unfortunately didn't resolve my issue, but it is a good card in general.
Jeanette... is there any hope to get this fixed.

What is the current status of this issue? Like most everyone else here, I'm on an older Mac. I'm assuming Adobe is actually going to fix this and not just sweep it under the rug?
Was there ever a fix for 2010 macs?
