Corey demonstrates how you can create multidimensional text from a single text layer.

    Awesome tutorial as ever Corey, absolutely loving the new 3D inside Photoshop CS5 just had a quick idea for further development of this, how about animating this? Perhaps a zooming up to the letters in 3D space, kinda like a promotional trailer you see in cinemas sometimes. Just a thought, maybe useful for another tutorial in the future on Layers TV, Planet Photoshop or Layers Magazine. Once again just a thought, keep up the good work with the tutorials!

    wow! One single text layer but split into 3D space – simple yet so awesome! CS5 never fails to deliver. Good work Mr Barker

    Thank you for constantly showing 3D tuts in Photoshop.. You’re like the only one that does it. My weapon of choice for 3D is Cinema 4D, but man it is so nice to be able stay in photoshop when creating a flyer for example, rather then have to open up a 3D program and render something out just for a still frame.. Thanks again!

    Thanks for all the great tuts. I am running photoshop cs3 on windows pc and I do not have repousse option in 3D panel. Any ideas?

    When I make text into a 3D layer by choosing the repousse> text layer, I get a dialog box saying that the layer has to been rasterized. I found by selecting yes, I no longer have the capabilities to manipulate individual letters in 3D space like shown in the tutorial. What am I doing wrong? Is this an issue of RAM? I have the newest Macbook pro 4gb with i7.
