generated within Photoshop, gives the object depth, and then sculpts
the graphic into a “3D masterpiece,” says Zax Dow, president of
Zaxwerks. Photoshop artists can use the vector tools in Invigorator
for real-time changes to their 3D objects. They can also access its
built-in text engine to transform True Type and Type 1 fonts, and
take advantage of Photoshop features like Smart Objects and Smart
