Applying the preset
Here’s our second photograph, a cutout of a larva. You can download it from 3DPhotoshop.net.
Select the layer and choose 3D Extrusion from Layer in the 3D panel, then click Create to make the 3D object.
From the Properties panel, click on the first icon to go to the Mesh view and then choose the new preset, as described on the previous page.
Even though a preset has been applied, we can still modify the appearance. Here, I’ve dragged upward on the Inflate control to make the larva more rounded.
You’ll end up with 3D models of both the beetle and the larva: when you place them into a scene, as I’ve done here, you can get some truly spectacular results.
