Since the release of Strata 3D CX 5.0, Chris Tyler has posted a variety of very informative video and graphical tutorials on how to use some of the new features. We've assembled these tutorials in one place so you can be up and running quickly once you receive your copy of Strata 3D CX 5.0

This bloom effect expands and blurs highlights in your image, giving them more focus. Jon has provided simple instructions that will set this up as a texture you can apply to any object.

Strata 3D CX 5.0 and Foto 3D greatly enhance the Photoshop to 3D workflow. Beyond PSD live linking, CX 5 renders to layered PSD files, provides a history palette and palette docking. Foto 3D works with Photoshop to
enhance the model making process.
Colin Smith of PhotoshopCafe notes "I'm very excited about Strata's new Render to Layers technology ...incredible."
