I have a ton of backgrounds that were made by using the old basic3d effect. I now want to, if possible, convert them to 3d layers keeping the same perspective so that I can add lights and shadows to them. Is this possible in any sort of quick way?

Nope. The old Basic 3D effect on a layer and a real 3D layer are two totally different animals. I know of no way on God's Green Earth this can be done.

But take heart: I've been proven wrong in the past. Perhaps my "ain't no way" post will get someone digging for a solution.
