** Dinesh, good luck and let me know how it goes. Remember, you can always get a trial copy of Adobe Creative Cloud. (^_^) ** Johannes, excellent! I know I'm always happier when I learn something new. (^_^) ** Disclaimer: I'm the editor-in-chief of Photoshop Dimensions (photoshopdimensions.com) and you can download the first issue for free as a PDF (or in iTunes). The first issue covers 3D in Photoshop CS 6 Extended. There will be a new versions shortly that covers the new features found in Photoshop CC. Cheers!

comment Photoshop action to export icon resources for OS X app?
I'm sure others will answer the Script/Action question, but I want to address a design issue. Unless your design is very simple and has sharp contrast, when you start making icons that are less than 64^2 you'll want to tweak them to make them look better... and for the 32^2 and 16^2 icons, you may want a simpler version of the icon graphics. This is standard practice. Cheers!

comment “Fake” 3d effect in Photoshop/Illustrator with raster images
The 3D feature are now part of Photoshop CC (no more Photoshop Extended), so everyone has access to 3D in Photoshop. Woot! (^_^)

Make an Action to apply the Free Transform/Skew Transform to your layers, this way you won't have to worry about typing in the values for each layer your transforming. Cheers!

comment How to design 3D logos like this?
I answered below, and provided an example. You can do it with Photoshop CS3+ (Extended), but with CS6 you can do it easier and simpler. Also, there's several rendering settings to make it look photorealistic to cartoonish. Cheers!

+1 for a good example of using one filter with either a photo/picture or color blocking.

comment Why 3d redering, even for basic text, is so slow in photoshop and other programs when today's games can do that very easily
Muhammad, "real-time" rendering (with various settings) is offen done for 3D video games is not quite true. As Johanes sstated, the game rendering is already done. That is to say that all of the materials have been baked and saved out. In addition, most of the lighting in game is already baked into the textures. There's a big difference between rendering a scene in photoshop and a prebaked model/material/texture/light set in a game. In addition, Photoshop is calculating AO, GI,Refraction, Reflection, caustics, etc... almost all games do not do that in real-time. Cheers!

comment Add 3D perspective to a vectorized text
I don't think it's quite off-topic Scott, as 3D is built into Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, albeit to a limited degree, but will still do 3D Extrusions on Text and Vector objects. Photoshop CS 6 Extended has a redesigned UI to easily create 3D Text, Extrusions, etc, with camera's lights, IBLs, and more. Scott, the other reason I don't agree is that if you look at the ads around us today, a good 80% use 3D for Text and other aspects of design. More over, designers are called upon to work with 3D assets to use in comps for product placement and package design comps. 3D is now in design.
