This course will show you how to model, texture, light, and render your very own 3D scenes in Adobe Photoshop. Adobe's primary pixel pusher, Photoshop, is well known for image manipulation, but most artists skip over its 3D capabilities. In this course, Understanding 3D in Photoshop, you will learn just how powerful, useful, and easy the 3D tools in Photoshop really are. You'll start with an exploration of the 3D interface in Photoshop along with a review of some of the terms and concepts unique to working in 3D. Next, you'll see how Photoshop uses extrusions to create 3D text elements, as well as how to import 3D elements into Photoshop for editing. Finally, you'll get an introduction to Fuse, which makes modeling a human easy before seeing how to finalize the scene by rendering it out. After completing this course, you'll be ready to tackle 3D projects using Adobe Photoshop.
