Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Making editable 3D type, part of Photoshop CS6 New Features.
Photoshop CS5 allowed you to do strew type in a 3-D space.…So the notion of 3-D type is not new to CS6.…However the way it works is altogether new.…Adobe has completely overhauled the 3-D engine and made it worlds better.…So you no longer need Repousse as you did inside of CS5; you can work directly…inside the image window and we've got great heads-up display controls and the…type remains editable.…So let me show you how it works.…I'm going to go ahead and turn off these top layers and turn on this editable…text layer, select it as well.…
Here is how you create 3-D type.…You go up to the Type menu and you choose Extrude to 3D.…That's really all there is to it.…Now as soon as I choose Command, I'm going to get an alert message, asking me if…I want to switch to the 3-D workspace.…I don't absolutely have to, but it's probably good idea because that way, I have…immediate access to my properties and 3-D panels.…The purpose of the 3-D panel is to allow you to gain access to your lights…and your materials, your meshes, which are the 3-D objects themselves, as…

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.
