CS6 3D XP

Jun 20, 2012 7:10 AM

Tags: #3d #graphics #card #cs6

When I first installed CS6 the 3D option disappeared when I tried to use it.  I found out that this was because my graphics card was not adequate.  So I purchased and installed a new graphics card and reinstalled CS6 but I cannot find the 3D option that is on the tutorial images.


Can someone help with this?  It is now working in CS5 but I'd like to use it in CS6.  Ideas anyone?

    What are the system specs? What does the OpenGL info in the prefs say about the matter?

    If you are Running Windows XP,  3D features and some GPU-enabled features are not supported, as per the technical specifications.

    Yes.

     

    To use 3D, you need Windows 7.

    And also you need to update your display drivers from time to time, those you use are one year old.
