Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Photoshop to create 3D objects, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In the last tutorial, we made some cool 3D Objects out of masks, these little…snowflakes, kind of what you see those here in the background texture, and I…actually got those from Photoshop.…So what we are going to do is we are going to look at how to create these 3D…Objects, the 3D shapes, using Photoshop.…What I am going to do is I am going to go down to these Shapes tools towards the…bottom of the tools panel in Photoshop.…We don't want to use the rectangle up here; that's not what we are looking for.…We want to go all the way down, and click and hold down your left mouse button…until you see this little fly out menu here; choose the Custom Shape Tool.…
Now, you can also use these objects, and bring these shapes in to After Effects,…but After Effects kind of already have these same shapes.…So, I am going to choose the Custom Shape Tool, and then we come up here to…the shape area, click this little triangle, and now we have a library of…shapes to choose from.…These all come with Photoshop.…
