It's too long to explain this here, but Photoshop can create 3D elements when using vanishing point and then export to after effects, other than that it can only open and edit 3d files that already been created with other packages. There is also couple of plug-ins like strata that can help in the process as well, just Google it and you will get the relevant info

Have attempted this but the 3d warehouse website only allows me to download in .skp or zip format, is there anyway i can convert these file types?

First make sure you run Photoshop CS3 EXTENDED, if the plug-in doesn't work for you (it's still Beta, you know) you can visit the Google 3D warehouse website using your internet browser, do a search there, download the file you fancy, and then open it with Photoshop using the Open command.

Hope this helps,

Hello Eran,

I have the same problem as the guy below me, any chance you could shed some light?

Many thanks.

Eran,

Great tutorial! I enjoyed it very much. But, I have one small problem. After downloading and installing the plug-in, I can search Google 3D models for various things easily. Here's where the trouble starts. Upon clicking download I receive a 'Save To' dialog box, as normal. I save the model in the directory of my choosing. Then when I try to open the recently saved .kmz file in Photoshop the file does not appear (as if it was never downloaded). If I look for the .kmz file directly in the Finder, it also does not appear. I've tried downloading different models and re-installiing the plugin's but no success. Am I missing a step?

Thanks

It's really great job!!
I watched all of the 3 parts but manually i'm stuck on this part..
You 'll have to excuse me but i'm new with photoshop's environment and i'm trying to work some things out...
I have problem with the Google 3d plug in.I've dragged and drooped the file in the adobe ps>plug-ins>automated but the required option didn't appear in ps's automated menu.
I then tried to download the model manually but it didn't help cause the file was in different format(skp) so it couldn't be supported by ps...I use a windows pc .
Any idea?

Thanks in advance!

Friendly!

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the warm words.
I removed the watch hands with Google Sketch UP free edition software. You need to open the .KMZ file and then select the elements you don't need, and delete them. If it is too much work, please feel free to use the modified version of the Rolex.kmz I've included with the project files :-)

Eran,

Awesome work - I can already tell that this is going to be one of my favorite tutorial series'!

I'm new to this whole 3D models in Photoshop CS3 extended thing as I'm sure most people watching this are. I couldn't figure out how you removed that other rectangular piece that comes in the model when you download that Rolex watch model from Google. You mention that you made a slight modification but you didn't say how. How did you do that?

Thanks! Can't wait for the next part.
