Hi! I am having trouble getting my workspace to properly display in 3D. It was working fine yesteray. I tried resetting my workspace and even reinstalling photoshop, but when it still won't display the way it should. And if I click any of the camera controls or light controls or material controls, it splits the object into 4 fragments.
The attached image is supposed to be a pyramid. All the 3d view options are checked to show in the view menu. what happened??
tearing my hair out over here.
If you are using Photoshop v 22.4 or 22.4.1 can you go to Preferences >Technology Previews and check "Deactivate Native Canvas" then close and restart Photoshop
that did it! thanks so much!
I had both [View] [Show] ...
both selected and could not understand why I could not see either when in 3D workspace!
Have spent absolutely ages trying to fathom out why this was happening.
Thanks for your solution. I presume accepting the latest updates has caused this to occur?
Adobe does have that ability to provoke oneself to question our senility!
Yes it was in the last update.
A bit of background on the video card :
Adobe are updating the core graphics functions in Photoshop. This is driven by the operating systems of Apple and Microsoft in which the old Open GL functions are being removed in the case of Apple, or deprecated in the case of Microsoft. This means that the graphics functions that have worked for years must be rewritten to use Metal and Direct X. At the same time, Adobe are sensibly updating those core functions to deliver the additional speed we require to handle the very large files of today.
Some functionality in Photoshop, such as 3D and Lighting effects, still relies on the older Open GL graphics functions. To make these work, an additional preference Preferences>Technology previews>Deactivate Native Canvas has been added in v22.4. This can be checked and Photoshop restarted to restore 3D functions to where they were in 22.3
