  1. thanks Corey, I specially like the ‘defringe’, that will give so much better result then ‘select – modify-contract’ which I always used to get rid of that halo.
    And off course your very wll explained animation!

  2. I want to see the ‘Bird.psd’! Or the .mov at least.. I think it was even greater than this that you kept it for another event or regular tutorial in a regular day!

    Best wishes

  3. OK, sorry for interfering with things not of my business.

    Just a question, do you have any plans to upgrade to PS CS5 once it’s available? Do you (for example) have any insider info?
    Just curious about your thoughts..


  4. Corey…im a huge fan of your site and all the wonderful tutorials. I just dont think Photoshop has a place within the professional 3D graphics world. This is a good tutorial hands down, but it will never compare to After Effects or other software packages. I see the Photoshop 3D integration as a stepping stone into After Effects, but not a standalone. Maybe because I am old follower of Photoshop w/ traditional 2D art.

  5. Thank you for your help with potoshop im vary dislexic and have vary hard time reading ,
    or typing .With out your turtoril wood not makeing tshirts.
    thankyou Ray lewis

  6. Very cool stuff Corey. I enjoy watching your tutorial’s, you make it easy.

    Working on an art project for my nephew and I love that football field background. Any
    chance you can send that to me? Nephew loves U of M so I’m hoping to manipulate it
    to look like U of M stadium and my own anime characters in front playing football.

    PS. Had no clue about 3D effects in Photoshop, thanks.

  7. For Angel:
    Edit – preferences – performance – mark “Enable OpenGL drawing” – ok
    For Mr.Corey:
    THANKS for your tutorials!

  8. Great tutorial.

    but what do you do after you have completed your animation?
    how do you render it to be a movie?

    Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Hello, i’m a professional dancer. i’d like to see to make a showreel with regard to my promotions. I also desire to use some animation. Can someone suggest me an excellent animation studio, but not really very expensive? I’m here for 3 months for a tour.
