Call to action – Photoshop CS6 3D and 2D challenge

As you may or may not know, Adobe UK is powering the Creative Week (July 9th to July 13th). Friday 13th July will be the Digital Imaging day and there will be a focus on all aspects of Photography, invluding a debate challenging traditional vs modern digital techniques.

Photoshop CS6 Extended has undergone some amazing transformations and has gained even more creative power. One of such is the 3D engine, 3D  has been overhauled to create one amazing powerhouse, offering a new dimension in image creation with this version of Photoshop. You can do so much more than ever with this version! Including  3D text extrusions, Path & shape extrusion and all in real time (3D in Photoshop CS6 Extended it’s all on the Graphics Processor running across the OpenGL architecture), this means you don’t need such a special graphics card to advantage of this amazing enhancement in Photoshop technology.

We would like YOU to take part in Creative Week and show us what you can do with the enchanced 3D engine now in Photoshop CS6 Extended. It’s a free form challenge but the main premise is that we would like you to create a 3D render/extrusion on a 2D image/photograph/design, that’s the only restriction. The prize for the best submission will be for some Adobe software.

There is a heap of assets here designed for 3D in Photoshop CS6 Extended, including stages and sets, Models and Materials and Image based lights. You can also download the Photoshop Dimensions Tablet Magazine, which was created by the Photoshop 3D team !!.

I have also tried to give you a starter for 10 as well, by recording some startup videos :-

Working with 3D text extrusions


You can download Photoshop CS6 Extended trial here as well..


Ideally we would like submissions by the end of the day Monday 9th July in readiness for the live show on Friday 13. Please send me a tweet to @richardcurtis if you would like to take part.


Good luck..
