Photoshop plug-in offered for Google 3D Warehouse

Google 3D Warehouse is a repository of 3D models of all shapes and sizes — everything from cityscapes to human forms, building products, automobiles, architectural designs and more. Now Photoshop CS3 Extended users can tap into it using Adobe Labs’ new Photoshop CS3 Extended Plug-In for Google 3D Warehouse.

The plug-in, released for free from the Adobe Labs Web site, enables Photoshop CS3 Extended users to search and download Google 3D Warehouse models without having to open a separate browser window. It was developed to leverage Photoshop CS3 Extended’s new tools and editing features for 3D-based content.

The plug-in converts the 3D model viewed at Google 3D Warehouse into a format that Photoshop CS3 Extended can read, then the model will open as a 3D layer. Adobe Labs acknowledges a few limitations and issues with this release, so please read the notes carefully before downloading and using this software.

Adobe has released the Macintosh version of this plug-in ahead of its Windows counterpart, which won’t be available until Friday, June 1, 2007.
