    Eastiest Photoshop 3D question of all time

    The Problem:
    3d view shows black object, not the mesh or material applied to it.

    Steps:
    #1 Create layer and place a green 100x100 color square on it (for testing)
    #2) Select 3D> New Mesh From Layer> Mesh Preset> Sphere

    Result:
    Photoshop sends me to the 3D view but the sphere is black in both camera views. How do I view the sphere with the green color square on it? I can't properly rotate the object or camera without being able to see what I'm really working on.

    Software:
    Photoshop CS6 - Version 13.1.1 x64

    Thanks a billion in advance!!! There has to be an easy solution but I can't figure it out.

    Possible solution,

    1. Create new transparent layer.
    2. Go to 3D > New Mesh from Layer > Mesh Preset > Select Sphere
    3. Go from 3D panel to Layers Panel
    4. Double click Sphere Material default texture. A new pallet will open.
    5. Select a color (green) and fill the entire pallet with that color.
    6. Click the X and save when prompted.

    You should have a green sphere.

    Thanks IamSam. Unfortunately I get the same result. The small sphere in the properties window turns green but not the sphere in the camera view. Still pure black.

    Ok droid,

    Make sure you have the move tool selected. Do the first 2 steps I listed in my previous post. When you have your result, then do a screen capture of your whole Ps interface. Highlight your 3D panel "scene".

    Like this.

    Also include a screenshot of your 3D preferences.

    Can you show me the properties while you have "scene" highlighted?

    BTW here is a donut example. It's 3d, I can rotate it, move the camera, etc. etc. But it's pure black with no detail.

    One of my friends thought maybe I didn't have a light source. That was a good idea but no luck. Here is the light source with the handle.
