Working with Imported 3D Models
Most people don’t think of Photoshop when it comes to working with 3D models. However, bare-bones 3D functionality was introduced in CS3 Extended circa 2007. A real breakthrough was made in CS4 Extended, giving independent editing control over meshes, materials, and lights. Photoshop CS5 Extended refines the 3D toolset even more and introduces image-based lighting, material libraries, and more. This chapter teaches you in a continuous tutorial how to work with imported 3D models through the following stages:
- Transferring 3D models into Photoshop
- Navigating in 3D space
- Adjusting materials and maps
- Illuminating with virtual light
- Rendering the model
