XChange International announce availability of Strata 3D CX v5.1with 60% speed increase on Macintosh Intel Systems (February 09, 2007)
Strata 3D CX takes artists and designers into the third-dimension using familiar and friendly interface elements. New palette features such as Docking, Stacking, Expert Settings and Auto-Collapse have been added. The new Status palette includes a History tab for multiple undos. Strata 3D CX 5.0 works the way designers expect. Strata 3D CX 5.0 provides new scripting power via the popular Lua scripting language. Used by a host of 3D games and engines, Lua gives the user the power to add almost any feature or effect they desire. Those users not inclined to scripting themselves can rely on an army of third-party developers and users to create and share new scripts. Scripts that ship with Strata 3D CX 5.0 include Twist, Bend, Wave and more.
The most powerful modelling technique going is SDS (subdivision surface) and Strata 3D CX 5.0 takes it even further by adding support for Quad Meshes® and the Catmull-Clark® algorithm. The CX Polyspline modeller has also added the new Magic Wand tool, support for Mirror, Bridge, Connect, Flip, Unify and more. CX 5.0 also introduces the Motion Stopwatch and an all new bones and IK (inverse kinematics) system has been added. These powerful new systems also make it possible for a suite of new plug-ins from Greenbrier to be made available for importing Poser models, applying voice control from applications like Mimic and importing motion capture data to apply to your own models.
