Join Chad Chelius for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring improved 3D lighting capabilities, part of Photoshop CS6 New Features Overview.
To better explore Photoshop's new lighting tools, let's look at the 3D …color picker more fully to see how it can take your textures and push them into …high-dynamic range, for use in lighting your 3D Photoshop scenes. …Photoshop now offers a 32-bit color picker which will allow you to take your …textures on your objects and push them into high dynamic range. …These textures can then be used to actually light your 3D environment. …In this example, this scene is lit by a standard JPEG image.…
It's low dynamic range, and doesn't' have enough brightness contrast to actually …light the scene. To compensate for that, I've taken the …intensity and driven it up to 200%, and that gives you the look that we have here. …I'm going to take this and drop it back down to 100%, and we'll see that the …scene is going to get relatively dark. Instead of taking the time to render the …whole thing, I'll just marquee-select a section and render that out. …You can see that everything is appearing relatively dark here. …
