Chapter: 3D Modelling and Animation
Topic: Textures and Image Maps
Photoshop CS4 introduces a ton of new 3D capability, which, alongside its surprisingly decent video capabilities, positions it as a useful tool for 3D.

The main tradeoffs are extra render time, zero ability to actually create complex 3D models, and limited control over your finished scene.
