Hi Jumpingeal,

Before pasting, have you properly created your planes? Are the grids showing in blue color? It would help to see a screen shot of the image with your vanishing point grids in place just prior to pasting.

Here is a pretty detailed page on how to use the vanishing point tool - perhaps you could let us know where the process breaks. Note that the section on pasting is about two-thirds of the way down the page, but the prior information is very useful if you're new to vanishing point:

Use Vanishing Point in Photoshop

Hey there! I had this problem after watching a tutorial but I figured out that you're not supposed to leave the vanishing point screen. DON'T PRESS OK. just paste and adjust from there.

Are you first selecting the layer to paste ctrl-a or cmd-a, then copying too the clipboard ctrl-c or cmd-c, then in Vanishing Point make sure the selection tool is active and press ctrl-v or cmd v on the keyboard. Sometimes the pasted object will come in at a gigantic size, so zoom out and use the transform tool to adjust the dimensions. Now drag the imported image onto the perspective plane.

Your screen shot looks like it has let you paste. After pasting, have you then tried dragging the image onto the VP plane?

Well first of all,youre doing it wrong.Ctrl+a to select the layer you want to paste then Ctrl+c to copy it onto the clipboard.Now hide it and click on the layer you intend to copy it to,then go to Filter > Vanishing Point. At this point the Vanishing Point window will appear with the plane you made then Ctrl+v to paste. Marching ants will appear around your selection enabling you to free transform and adjust the selection to fit into your plane.

 

That should work

I had the same problem. This fixed it.

- highlight the text you want to copy paste: press Ctrl+A (Cmd+A) for Mac

- hide the text layer > add a new layer > 

- add vanishing point by filter > Vanishing point

- Trace the area of vanishing > without deselcting, paste the text Ctrl+V (Cmd+V)

- Then drag the text to the vanishing point plane

We have the same problem, but sometimes it works and sometimes not, I think it's one those adobe's experimental options, never gets complete or works smooth. I have to spend hours every time to get my result, so it is not worth it anymore, I'm trying to find an alternative
