Alright so i am trying to create a 3D extrusion from text in Photoshop CC for this twitter banner i'm making. The background is black, with a few candles. I am trying to make a 3D extrusion of the word "Casper" the problem is that all of the 3D options are grayed out. I have no idea what the problem is because I have done this before on the exact same way. I thought i had to convert the text to outlines and i did the hot key for it ctr shift+O. i also thought maybe it was the font that is weird but of course that was not the case either. So im trying to make a 3D extrusion and I have no idea what I did wrong. Can anyone help or has anyone had this problem before?

First check your image mode. Is it RGB? It needs to be for 3D to work.

If it is, please post the info requested by Mylenium.

Be sure you have selected Text Layer - just select Layer with Move (V) Tool  (not to select text with text Tool!!)

Be sure your document is RGB
Be aware of: Grayscale, CMYK, 16 bit mode RGB
