Design 3D CX gives you all the tools you need to complete professional 3D projects. Illustrators, product & package designers, display & interior designers – and other creative professionals – rely on Strata Design 3D CX to realize their vision. Easy to learn, hundreds of hours of video tutorials, and connections to Adobe and other tools make getting up to speed – and integrating with your workflow – a breeze.
Simplified 3D Learning Curve
Strata Design 3D eases the learning curve for 2D designers who are new to 3D. Quick start templates, libraries, predefined effects, backgrounds, environments and more allow designers to create complex scenes in minutes. With a user interface and tools that are familiar to today’s 2D designers, you invest your time learning 3D design concepts rather than a new design paradigm.
Model Anything – or Import Existing 3D Assets
For many, the thought of 3D modeling is a daunting task. Design 3D offers an extremely friendly modeling toolset and environment for manipulating your polygons, splines, and primitives into any 3D object or scene you can imagine. If you’re working with existing 3D assets, Strata Design 3D CX utilizes a host of filters and options to accurately import third-party 3D models and scenes.
Apply Surface Textures with Precision
In the world of 3D, texturing may just be the most important component in creating convincing final renderings. Once you have designed your 3D model, Strata Design 3D CX gives you powerful tools to create, apply and manipulate surface textures with beautifully accurate results.
Sophisticated Lighting, Backgrounds & Cameras
Scene composition is a critical step in producing stunning images. Design 3D CX makes it easier to control the environment than any photography studio you could imagine. Position your 3D objects and then place lights, reflection panels, cameras, backgrounds, environments, reflection elements and more to produce a superior final render or animation for your design project.
Photo-Real Images & Animations at Blazing Speeds
Strata is well known for its extraordinary rendering technology. Whether you’re after photo-realistic results or some other style for your static or motion graphics, you will find the rendering options to suit your needs and output the results using one of the fastest rendering engines in the industry. After all, it’s all about the final results and Design 3D delivers.
Intel® Embree Powers Rendering
Design 3D CX includes the Embree raycasting technology by Intel to improve rendering speed up to 800%. Added to the Stage Model feature, Design 3D CX makes it easy to create professional quality images. Speed and efficiency rolled into one.
Share Your Vision in 3D, VR and AR
Output to the latest technologies to share your work:
Import 2D elements from applications like Adobe Illustrator or draw 2D and 3D objects directly in Strata Design 3D CX.
Model using familiar Bezier splines, but now in 3D: traditional polys- but now with Quad Polysplines (subdivision surfaces); MetaSurfaces to meld objects together; Extrude and Lathe; Boolean to combine or subtract: Skin; Mirror and more!
Examine artwork from any angle with split-able views, connected views, multiple views, depth cueing and even special views for cameras and light sources. OpenGL gives you quick previews while LiveRay gives you photo-real previews.
Enjoy many options and an easy to use interface to control your "environment".
Design 3D gives you point lights, spotlights, global sun-style lights, environment based lightdomes, High Dynamic Range Image lighting, glowing surfaces, gels – all unlimited and fully controllable.
Special Effects Features
Spice up your images and animations with special effects like Lens Flare, Auras, Particles – and the new Script FX.
Strata Design 3D CX includes a Lua based scripting language. With Lua you can script shaders and textures to: access the rendering pipeline; lens scripting for the creation of custom lenses, effects and warps; Filter FX which allows you to write custom Lua scripts to apply filters based on an object's surface normal, direction, lighting, volume, and by pixel color, depth, transparency, layer within the psd file – and much, much more.
The core of what makes Strata Design 3D CX so good – and what it's famous for – is the high quality rendering.
Strata Design 3D CX takes a simple approach to animation: Everything can be animated. And it takes a simple approach to controlling animation: keyframes, a timeline, and scripting. Even if you've never booted it up, you already know how to use it.
"What if" is as simple as drag-and-drop in Strata Design 3D CX. Select from the palette of hundreds of pre-made surface textures or make your own using features like live-linking to native Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator files – make a change in Photoshop or Illustrator and Strata Design 3D CX automatically updates the model surface.
A great camera can make even the novice photographer look good. Just think of what Strata Design 3D CX will do for you with all these imaging options at your fingertips. These options include four kinds of motion blur, depth of field, and six styles of cameras including panoramic.
