CGTrader introduces CGDream: Advancing 2D image creation with AI and 3D models

Greetings CGTrader community,

We are excited to introduce you to our latest innovation, CGDream - an application that produces unique 2D images by combining the power of Generative AI and 3D models. Unlike traditional generative AI applications that tend to generate different images every time, CGDream offers unmatched control over image composition by using 3D models to guide the design. This enables users to define the composition of the image, precisely execute their artistic vision and even use their own 3D models to generate various visuals out of them.

3D to Image: The technology at the heart of CGDream

CGDream uses 3D to image to provide users with enhanced control and precision in AI-generated content. It is a simple yet effective approach that allows anyone, even users without a technical background in 3D, to generate customized 2D images using 3D models from CGTrader’s free model library, with premium models coming in the future, or their own uploads.

CGDream works as follows in 4 simple steps:

1. Choose a 3D Model: Start by selecting a 3D model. This could be from CGTrader’s free model library, with premium models coming in the future, or from your own collection.

2. Set Up Your Design: Set up your scene in CGDream’s 3D viewer. Manipulate the 3D model by shifting its position, zooming in and out, and setting your desired camera angle.

3. Describe Your Image: After the scene is set up, describe in simple language what you want your final 2D image to look like.

4. AI Generates Your Image: CGDream follows your instructions and brings your vision to life, producing a 2D image based on the 3D model and your description.

In short, CGDream makes creating unique 2D images using AI simpler and more precise, while giving you control over the final result.

New opportunities for 3D designers

At CGTrader, we believe that AI can be utilized in a way that empowers and benefits artists, creating new business and growth opportunities. When creating an image in CGDream, 3D models serve merely to guide the composition of the image, and not as data for AI training, offering transparency and fairness to designers.

Moreover, CGDream allows designers to present their 3D collections to an entirely new, broader user base—creators lacking technical 3D skills. It enables anyone to use 3D models to realize their artistic vision, even without expertise in 3D software. This strategy introduces 3D models to a much larger mainstream audience of creators, marketers, artists, hobbyists, and generally anyone with a creative idea.

CGTrader will soon be offering designers the option to sell their models to CGDream users, thus creating new opportunities for designers to monetize their premium model collections. As buyers can only use the 3D models in CGDream but not download them, it presents a great opportunity for designers to profit from their premium model collections and earn additional income while protecting their intellectual property.

Where is the user manual? The promo says you can use your own models. I can't figure out how and there is no instruction for this anywhere.
