The new Adobe 3D tool can work with models and has real-time previews

Project Felix
Announced in November at Adobe MAX 2016, Project Felix, the new 3D tool is available for download as a beta by paying Creative Cloud users.

Built from the ground up using new technology, Project Felix goes beyond being a compositing tool and aims to make the creation of 3D images easier for designers without 3D expertise.

It can create and render fully lit scenes with 3D models, materials, lights and background images from either Adobe Stock, shared CC Libraries or your own desktop.

You can tilt, rotate and transform models as well as adjust lighting and edit surfaces using sliders. Changes can be done in real-time via a render preview and are easily editable in Photoshop for post-production.

Adobe recommends you check out minimum system requirements for Project Felix before use, which includes a minimum memory of 8GB of RAM, hard disk space of 2.5GB and either Windows 10 or Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) respectively.
