Strata 3DPro 3.8 in Preorder

New version to get OS X support By Dave Nagel
Strata says it will ship Strata 3DPro version 3.8 this month. Strata 3DPro is a 3D modeling and animation package for Macintosh and Windows. Version 3.8 will support Mac OS X and also gain new modeling and rendering features.

New features in version 3.8, aside from OS X support, include caustics with photon mapping, a cartoon renderer and new "Raydiosity" features, including stochastic sampling and multiple diffuse ray bounce. It also gains enhanced deformation and "jiggle" tools. (Both of the new tools allow you to set the number of points in the deformation.)


The new software will be available this month. According to Strata, preorders will be shipped on a first-come basis. A "Plus" version of the software will ship at an as-yet-unannounced date. Upgrades to Strata 3DPro 3.8 run $99 to $349, depending on the version you're upgrading from. For more information, visit http://www.strata.com.
