Attention 3D Newbies - Your Training Starts Here

We have just consolidated what we feel are the most useful first-timer training videos into a new category called Newbies at Strata 3D University. For designers who are new to the whole 3D thing, the application environment, toolset and concepts can be a little confusing and intimidating. This collection of introductory videos will familiarize you with the basics of 3D and challenge you to take your new skills to the next level..

Follow Strata today! Each month we randomly select one of our Facebook friends or Twitter followers to receive a free month of training at Strata 3D University. If you're already a University subscriber, we'll refund one month's worth of training. And our first winner is: Matthew Battershell. Congratulations!
