Using the 3D Transform filter

Choose Filter ^ Render ^ 3D Transform to bring up the window shown in Figure 11-44. Less a dialog box than a separate editing environment, the 3D Transform window contains a wealth of tools and a preview area in which you can draw and evaluate the effect. There are a dozen tools in all, but they make a bit more sense if you regard them as members of five basic categories, itemized in the following sections. Like Photoshop's standard tools, you can select the 3D Transform tools from the keyboard (assuming that you have any headroom left to memorize the shortcuts). Shortcut keys are listed in parentheses.
