3D Transform does not now work on elements 10. Why?

Mar 15, 2013 4:29 AM

When accessing the 3D Transform and selecting the shape required and OK.  The shape does not download to a blank page.  Also the anchor points, pan camera tool and trackball tool are all greyed out.  All these features worked a few months ago.  What has happened please?

    Although the 3d transform filter will install in pse 10 under windows it might not always work as it was designed for older versions of photoshop (elements)


    For the first part (shape does not appear on a blank layer)

    Look under Options and uncheck Display Background

    Or start with a new blank layer. (transparent layer)





    For the anchor points it needs to be a shape drawn with the Cylinder Tool (C)


    The Trackball and Pan Camera are greyed out until you actually draw out the shape.


    I'll post the instructions for the 3d transform tool from an old photoshop help manual.




    Actually the stuff online is better than the photoshop manual in this case.
