Create 3D objects (.OBJ) using Illustrator & Photoshop for Adobe Dimension product mock-ups
This video is for designers who are unfamiliar with 3D software and looking for a tool to mock up scenes and graphic design. Adobe Dimension is a simpler interface to use and consistent with its series of Illustrator and Photoshop programs versus having to learn a new 3D interface and shortcuts. If you already know how to use a 3D program, then please skip this video. You’ll get a much better quality rendering from a 3D program if you’re savvy.
*Also, yes, I apologize – I recorded this late one evening and I have two young children, so my voice is especially low and monotone.
