We are assuming that you are a knowledgeable 2D motion graphics artist. We figure you are someone who is looking to branch out your skills by adding new software skills. This book does assume a background with the Adobe CS suite, mainly Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe After Effects. The first few chapters will address techniques for these three packages that are either (1) newly added to the software or (2) classic techniques that users may just not be aware of. Photoshop in its last three versions has added significant and powerful 3D tools. After Effects has supported 2.5D for several versions. With version CS4 it also supports Photoshop 3D files. Additionally there’s a long history of add-on tools or plug-ins that add 3D support.
