Although Motion is 2.5D and you can't create of manipulate true 3D objects, you can cheat a little with cubes or any other flat sided shapes.
For a cube, you could create the 6 seperate sides of it in Photoshop as 6 flat layers (with transparent, or alpha BGs) then import each layer as seperate objects into Motion and rotate the sides through the relevant XYZ axis' to create the 3D cube.
As I said, this only works with flat sided objects: cubes, diamonds etc.. but it still lets you add a little 3D that you wouldn't normally be able to create. Ok maybe not true 3D, but at least 2.75D.

Simon.
