When I import a image (in this case a designed letterhead paper) the graphic doesn't take on the curved form from the curved plane.. it stays flat. How can I get it to take the shape of the 3D model?
Do you mean to import as placed graphic? Can you share that image?
Sure as you can see the image isn't taking the same shape as the model. I clicked on the image and selected import image.
In Dimension it is not possible to warp any placed image, so the only workaround is to edit image in PS after placing on 3D object. I can suggest you to create several artboards in PS and place different warp examples of text on them. After importing PSD file as placed graphic you can choose artboard with image which the best fits 3d Object surface.
Ok thanks, When viewing the tutorials for Dimension it looked as though I could do this easily. It now seems misleading.. I could just do all of this in photoshop then and not even use this new program.
