THE 3D PANEL AND POST­CARDS

Maximum PC - - R&D -

Pho­to­shop CC in­cludes all the 3D ca­pa­bil­i­ties from the old CS6 Ex­tended re­lease, and builds on them. The app uses the name “post­card” for a 2D layer that’s been con­verted to a plane in a 3D com­po­si­tion. 2D lay­ers can be wrapped around 3D ob­jects, such as cones or cubes, and a grayscale 2D layer can be used as a depth map for cre­at­ing a 3D mesh. The 3D panel ap­pears near Lay­ers when you’ve got a 3D layer in your com­po­si­tion. It lists the meshes, ma­te­ri­als, and light­ing choices you’ve made for the 3D ob­ject, and en­ables you to tweak set­tings and op­tions. You can turn the vis­i­bil­ity of meshes or lights on and off in the same way you would a layer, by click­ing the eye icon next to their en­try in the 3D pal­ette, and click them di­rectly to edit them.
