how to activate the "turntable" 3D preview

Tags: #thumbnails #bridge_cs6 #3d_preview

I've lost the 3D preview of my files in Adobe Bridge...


In Bridge CS5 when previewing an OBJ or DAE file, Bridge is able to compute the thumbnail and allow to play a "turntable" animation making the 3 model rotating along the up axis...


I've freshly installed a CS6 MasterCollection on a Pc running win7 x64 and it dont runs, I get the good thumbnail in the "content" panel, but only the generic icon in the "preview" panel...and without the start/stop movie button...


Has anyboby an idea to activate this feature ?


Could it be an issue with my Graphic card ?

I try running Bridge on a Demm Precision M4700 with a Nvidia Quadro K2000M (Kepler)


Many thanks

    Hello, I suggest posting of the site to request that feature back.

    I would really like this to come back, as I deal with 3d images daily and I do not like having to open the files in order to see what they are.


    Why was this taken away, especially when 3D capabilities in PS were increased?  Seems very silly.


    So if anyone agrees, this is the thread to let Adobe know:


    Thread name:  "Bridge: Bring back 3D preview"

    I cannot tell you how much time I have had to add to my workflow due to this lost feature.

    I cannot tell you (the general "you") how much I desire for this functionality to return.


    I think I have withdrawal pains.


    Thanks for reading,
