My Latest Video Course, Photoshop Extended One-on-One: 3D Type Effects, Is on Its Way

Update: This 5-hour and 51-minute video course is now live at lynda.com. If you get a chance to watch it, please let me know what you think!

This coming Tuesday (September 27 October 4, 2011), my beloved video publisher lynda.com releases the last in my four-course series on 3D in Photoshop, titled Photoshop Extended One-on-One: 3D Type Effects. In this course, I show you how to create a total of seven 3D type effects---all covering different disciplines, design needs, and approaches---entirely in Photoshop and altogether from scratch.

Watch the above movie for more info.

re:My Latest Video Course

I like to have a break during the my day and browse via some blogs to see what others are saying. This blog appeared in my search and I couldn't help but clicking on it. I am glad I did because it was a very enjoyable read.

Ray tracing question

I upgraded my Photoshop CS5 to Extended version, and I've been watching your video's, which are great by the way. I saw that when you did the ray tracing, the blue grid thingy is huge, something like 5x5 squares and even bigger sometimes, but mine is just 2x2 squares, why is that so? Does that mean that my computer sucks or something, so it just can't do any better than that?

Where is it?

I signed up for the trial and to see your type effects and I can't find them? Where are they?

My apologies. I had my dates wrong.
