DICE

This is the first tutorial to explain how to use my models.
Dide model lets you move it in 3D space to show the other sides,
it's also possible to change his colors. Let's see how is done.
_First open the file DICE-PSD.psd
_Go to layers select the layer 3D DICE (1)
_Then go to the 3D (scene) window, check quality (2) 
change to interactive painting


_Go to the window select tools rotate 3d (3) select the interactive tool to make
the rotation (4) I made 180 º rotation, You will see that the lateral faces are 
different now.

_Go to 3D (material) window to change colors (5) there are two materials
one for the dots and other for the DICE (6) then select diffuse color to change it.

Its done, now you can fit another background, 
make another shadow ...
To do this tutorial you need the 3d model,

Photoshop 3D Tools

Photoshop extended version CS4 and CS5 provides tools to manipulate 3D objects, allowing three dimension movement in any direction; paint 3D surfaces with the same tools used for painting 2D surfaces, apply materials like glass and chrome, and lighting control, very similar to  3D application.
In the following lines I will describe the main tools for working models imported from 3D applications.
