    Everybody works differently. Personally, I'm very comfortable with painting in Photoshop, so for now, it suits me. How much better each of those applications are against each other is a personal choice and depends on what you need. I just don't understand why people who don't use these tools can't accept that other people do... and therefore think that these tools should be removed!

    OK... by entirely, I meant the texturing and composting. The model would have been created elsewhere obviously.

    You're so right! He represents the whole 3D industry.

    That's cool but everyone has a different workflow. I guess Adobe can't keep everyone happy... and there are probably better places to discuss this than a forum of mostly UI/Web people.

    If you don't work in 3D then I can't really value your perspective. Photoshop's painting tools are incredible and being able to paint onto a 3D model is an amazing feature for 3D artists.

    Most renders from Blender, Maya, Cinema 4D... well any 3D Package will go through Photoshop to be touched up before they are completed anyway. So even if Photoshop has the weakest rendering... I can still see the benefit of working entirely in Photoshop.

    Well I'm a Maya user and I use this feature to paint my textures. I don't render through Photoshop because I work in motion.

    I can see the benefit of keeping everything in Photoshop for static images though. If I wanted to place a table into a photographed living room scene. I would much prefer to only use Photoshop than go back and forth between Maya and Photoshop.

    It's a really great feature!

    I can't speak for InDesign but I'm pretty happy moving between Photoshop and Illustrator using Smart Layers.

    Ha... definitely deeds to be ESP. Open your mind. EPS is for squares.
