3D not working in latest CC 2021 Photoshop

3D Functions are a mess. Practically nothing works. When I create a 3D object from a layer view control windows are not active, and I don't see a mesh. Additionally when I'm touching any function on move a camera everything disappears.

If I'm trying to create an object from mesh preset I'm getting a blank canvas.

  • 'Use Graphics Processor' is enabled in the Performance preferences. 
  • 'OpenCL' is activated.
  • 'Deactivate Native Canvas' is not enabled.


  • 3,4 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
  • 64 GB 2400 MHz DDR4
  • Radeon Pro 570 4 GB


I have everything up to date.

  • macOS Big Sur 11.4
  • Photoshop 22.4.2

Hi Karina,

Checking the 'Deactivate Native Canvas" checkbox and restarting the app should fix the issue.

Hi @E_Reynolds

Although It's a completely opposite advice, than the one I found here somewhere earlier, it worked.
