Project Felix: Now Available for Download

Since we debuted Project Felix at Adobe MAX 2016 in San Diego the team worked hard to bring our first beta to you today!

Here’s a quick summary of who, what, how and why Project Felix.

Who
Felix is for graphic designers with a paid Creative Cloud membership. Be sure to check our system requirements before downloading. We want to make sure you get the most out of this first beta.

Sorry gang, free Creative Cloud memberships are not eligible at this time.

What
Users can build an entire scene and render a final image for projects like:

  1. Advertising or product shots
  2. Product design
  3. Scene visualizations and concept mock-ups
  4. Abstract art

More than just a basic compositing tool, you can work with 3D models, materials, lights and background images licensed from Adobe Stock’s marketplace of 3D assets, or import your own from the desktop or via shared CC Libraries, to create fully lit scenes.

Felix’s controls and tools let you move around the scene, even tilt, rotate and transform individual models. Adjust the lighting and edit surfaces with easy-to-use sliders. And quickly place your models with visual guides. Watch your changes in real time with the render preview without having to wait hours to check your changes. Because Felix is part of Creative Cloud, your renders are also editable in Photoshop for post-processing.

Take a look at the Felix FAQ page if you’re hungry for more on this topic.

How
We built this beta from the ground up with new technology. You will want to double check Felix’s system requirements before downloading to your computer.

That said, Creative Cloud subscribers just need to:

  1. Log into their Creative Cloud account (if you’re reading this on your computer).
  2. Head to our product page to download the app.

For a deeper dive into Felix, check out the post by Zorana Gee, Principal Product Manager, introducing Felix and what’s to come in future releases.

Tell us what you think
We’re creating Felix specifically for graphic designers and your input is important to our design process. Our team thrives on feedback and is passionate about our mission to deliver a product that graphic designers want to use to create high-quality, photo-realistic images by combining 3D and 2D assets.

Tell us what you think by sharing feedback on UserVoice. Help make Project Felix even more intuitive and user-friendly so it fits naturally with your existing workflows.

  • By Nestor - 11:08 AM on December 14, 2016  

    Does the program really require Windows 10? im “going oldschool” with win7 and i’d rather keep it that way, dont like win10 at all, seems to have alot of problems latley, which is unfortunate. Is there gonna be a version for win7? really would like to try this out, doing alot with Cinema 4d but this one cought my interest!

    Where are the answers or at least attempts to answers on the part of Adobe?
    Thank you! SoapboxTwo.

  • By Volker Bethmann - 4:53 AM on December 31, 2016  

    It looks like a very early stage of a program, far from being useful for pros.
    but so far all adobe apps turned out useful sooner or later so pretty curious about the progress of it

  • By Wolfgang Tietzen - 3:53 AM on January 3, 2017  

    I’ve rendered my first picture with the lowest resolution as PSD. Trying to import it to Lightroom (with synchronize folder) does not work. Error message (I try to translate it from German): “file is using a not supported bit level (1)”.
    What to do?
