Photoshop CS4 using a 3D ring converted to a smart object
so that I could make it look more like a hoop. Also created 2 instances of it one which is intersected to show just the front part and placed above the tower image with the other behind and linked together.( , Sat 13 Feb 2010, 13:25, archived)
Where is the ring from?
I haven't messed with the 3d stuff since CS2 I think, tahkcalb and I tried importing some models and they didn't work very well. The ring you're using looks really smooth.( , Sat 13 Feb 2010, 13:49, archived)
3D > New Shape from Layer... > Ring
or you could use the Donut preset and transform it to thin it out.( , Sat 13 Feb 2010, 13:53, archived)
