At a previous job, I used to be able to do 3D type in Photoshop CS2, but that may have been due to a plug-in, I'm not sure.
At my current job, I have a Creative Suite CS6 Creative Cloud subscription and I was watching a tutorial to refresh my memory about doing 3D type.
Now, whenever I try to create 3D, either directly from the text, or from a rasterized version, all the 3D options in the menus are grayed out. And the 3D button doesn't appear in my options bar as it does in the tutorial video.
Is this another feature that is not available the Cloud version of CS6 or am I missing something?
3D can be disabled on older OSes (XP) and if your video card doesn't meet the minimum requirements.
