|Big things are happening here at Strata. We've been
working on a new version - Strata 3D CX - that will revolutionize
your workflow and give you the power you've been craving.
||CX is specifically designed to connect
you to your design workflow. It supports direct import of Illustrator
CS and PDF files. Import and link your Photoshop layered files as
textures. Need to make a change? Edit the Photoshop file and CX automatically
updates your texture. Strata 3D CX also supports FBX and OBJ file
formats to greatly enhance your connection to other 3D applications.
|Strata 3D CX extends your design power by giving you
hyper-real lighting with the new Light Dome. The Light Dome is a lighting
option that gives you image based lighting in all the renderers -
not just Raydiosity!
You'll also find support for High Dynamic Range images (HDRI) throughout
the application. Modeling has been greatly enhanced also with our
new Polyspline SDS modeler. Polysplines allow you to create almost
anything using sophisticated subdivision surface technology.
This is one release you won't want to miss. Make sure you take advantage
of the early bird offer - and be among the first to learn the full
power of CX by attending Red Rock.
