As a former Moderator for Cool 3D/Cool 3DPS I feel your pain. Unfortunately, your hopes and dreams of creating a better product/plugin to put Alludo on the map as a company to be reckoned with will fall on deaf ears.
Much like you I wrote to the Wishlist back in 2011 and NOTHING was ever done. My advice, move on. There's other software out there that won't break the bank and produce professional results unlike the mediocre products Corel/Alludo continues to sell. I still visit this site to offer help where my general knowledge and experience with former Ulead/Corel products may apply but also offer other options for serious enthusiasts.

1) Improve texturing. MS3D has low resolution texture support. Need high resolution textures. UV mapping so one can wrap model effectively with no stretching. Bump and displacement map support. Example: golf ball model with dimple indentions.
2) Raytracing. The ability to have lighting on model cast shadows. Pegacon's golf ball image.
3) Volumetric lighting- emit light rays to a 3D rendered scene.
4) Fluid simulaton or gravity controls.
5) Import motion tracking data, so one can align models perfectly within video projects. Example: Adding a 3D sign to the side of a moving car video.
6) Terrain builder. Create realistic clouds, oceans, trees, mountains, etc.
7) Import other models like Poser characters with group hierarchy, so one can manipulate and animate parts.
3D painting. Allow one to paint on or sculpt models.
I know I mentioned a lot for the wishlist and many will probably not be considered. Reason being is that these are more than entry level features and Corel wants to keep things simple. Its a shame that none of these were offered in MotionStudio 3D after waiting years for a replacement for Cool 3D Production Studio.
Yes, you are right.
Of course, Element 3D, which is in my mind, is not a complex and advanced plugin, and it won't harm the simplicity of VideoStudio.
As I said before, this plugin is somewhat similar to the Clipmaker section of the Panzoid website.
This dream plugin, while simple, allows VideoStudio users to create stunning videos.
Let me give you an example.
Suppose the New Year has come. You can go into the plugin environment and select a sphere object. By adding a flat earth map as a texture to the sphere, you can simulate the planet earth.
Then you rotate the curved 3D text "Happy New Year" diagonally around planet Earth.
After doing some simple lighting and some light reflection from the text, you will create a fantastic video in a simple way.
By exiting the plugin environment and re-entering the VideoStudio user interface, you are able to correct the color, put a filter and also add music to the video. Then you render the video and share it with others on social networks.
Dear friend, some of the things you mentioned above, which were related to 2011, are specific to professional software such as 3ds Max.
MotionStudio software was beginner and user-friendly and did not include advanced and professional features.
I really like VideoStudio software because of its beautiful user interface and relatively professional features. Ever since I got to know VideoStudio for video editing, it increased my passion for video editing and I have no desire to use other video editing software. For this reason, the development of VideoStudio is of great importance to me, and every year I expect more advanced features to be added to this software. One of these more advanced features is the Element 3d plugin, which will not conflict with the simplicity of VideoStudio.
I will name the abbreviation of Element 3D as E3D and maybe in the future I will see such a name for real in VideoStudio.
