Turns out, an un-documented feature in the CS6 Master Collection Trial install is they disabled the 3D Repousse feature in Photoshop.

The installation clearly states that Encore is NOT supported in the trial but they don't mention any other features are lobotomized.

All 3D features should be working in the Photoshop trial - unless your OS or video card/driver cannot support the 3D features.

Chris,

Turns out 3D Repousse has been discontinued in CS6 as described the following Adobe document:
"3D extrusion (formerly called Repousse)". This is listed at this address:

It would also be helpful if Adobe could provide an official explanation why the 560Ti appears to work, yet OpenCL is grayed and NVidia also says it is fully functional.

Please try to provide more comprehensive responses.

If OpenCL is grayed out: then the OS isn't supported, the driver says it's not capable, or it had an error (like a prior crash).

Once again Chris you are still not actually answering the question. Please do some research or forward this to a developer but don't just keep sloughing it off.

Why does the 560Ti driver says it's not capable and how can we test it?

Same question still NOT answered on the other site:

There are only a few reasons why OpenCL or OpenGL might not be available: the user turned it off, the OS isn't supported (no XP), the driver says it doesn't support the features, or the driver crashes when trying to use those features. That's it.

Other than upgrading the OS and driver, or asking NVidia for updates, you can't do much about it. In this case, you really need to contact NVidia and ask for some help with your drivers.

Also, you might want to do a little more research on my role in developing Photoshop before telling me to "forward this to a developer".

Problem solved. NVidia just released their first 300 series drivers and the Open CL option is working now.

I was running the Beta drivers 301.24 that had the problem so I downgraded to 296.10 WHRL drivers with no change. The latest 301.42 that were released on 5/22 appear to work.

Hi Nick,

I'm glad you were able to get things straightened out. Sorry for the confusion on the nomenclature change of Repoussé to 3D Extrusion. The same functionality is present (except for constraint movement), but renamed and much easier to create and edit now that it's not contained in a monolithic modal dialog.

And just an FYI on the OpenCL option in Photoshop, it is currently only used for the new CS6 Blur features (Iris, Field, and Tilt–Shift).

regards,
steve
