Photoshop CC Key Features: 5. 3D layer enhancements

3D layers have undergone a boost in Photoshop CC. It’s been possible for a couple of versions to merge 3D layers together so they can be manipulated both together and individually.

Now, you have the ability to duplicate and delete individual objects within a 3D layer.

You can also create “instances”, which are clones of the original object: editing the original will effect exactly the same alterations on all the clones.

There are also improvements with rendering speed, and with the way previews of complex elements such as shadows are now displayed.

Best of all, with Creative Cloud membership, there’s no distinction between regular and extended editions of Photoshop, which means 3D modelling is now available to everyone. It really is worth the experimentation.
