Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhanced 3D lighting with 32-bit bit color, part of Photoshop CS6 New Features.
If you are a 3D enthusiast, then hold onto to your hats, because Photoshop 13.1 includes…a handful of lighting enhancements, including the ability to define lights in the 32-bit…per channel mode, which means you can create some extremely nuanced lighting indeed.…We are going to use these features to convert this kind of leadish looking 3D Bull here…into this polished gold effect.…The first thing I am going to do is switch to the 3D workspace by clicking on this pop-up…menu in the upper right corner of the screen and choosing 3D, and that will bring up both…the 3D panel along with the Properties panel, both of which I need.…
I am going to start things off by adjusting my Sunlight here, which is selected inside of the 3D panel.…If it weren't, I would just click on it.…If you wanted to adjust the light, then you would switch to the Move tool.…This is a way it works in all versions of Photoshop CS 6 and then you can drag to switch…it around and so forth. But I don't want all this interface on screen.…So I am going to switch back to the Rectangle Marquee tool, and I am going to adjust my settings numerically.…

Q: This course was updated on 1/15/2013. What changed?
A: The course was revised to address the new Photoshop features and enhancements bundled with the Creative Cloud update released in December 2012. We added a second chapter to the course, detailing the new enhancements. We cover the Liquify and Blur Galleries, which now support Smart Objects; creating conditional actions; auto-naming merged layers; moving a point with the Pen tool on the fly; creating global default type styles; and copying CSS code from specialty layers. We also cover two improvements to the 3D package included with Photoshop Extended: enhanced 3D lighting with 32-bit color and the new default 3D image-based light. We also updated the exercise files with new files for Chapter 2 and added an introductory video to the beginning of Chapter 2 that outlines the improvements.
