Hi, so I'm having a major issue. First I import an obj into photoshop after that I replace the texture and then I press edit texture so therefore I have a 2d and 3d tab. My issue comes in when I want to add things to the texture I can no longer control the 3d portion. For example, if I make a new layer on top of the 3d layer which would cause this new layer to be 2D then I'll place embedded an image on this 2-d layer once I play around with the 2-d layer a little and click back on the 3D layer I can no longer move the 3-D layer around all of the 3D controls disappear. Does anybody know why. I have searched and searched and I cannot figure out why this happens.

yes its because you have the brush tool selected... when you go back to the 3D layer change to the arrow tool instead and all your 3D guides will turn back on mate

p.s, smart objects are a bad way to build 3D models in Photoshop... if you want a backup then copy the texture layer first instead of making it a smart object
