    "Useful or useless?"

    July 4, 2003  |   By MacWarrior


    This review was originally posted on
    My first impressions with Strata were always good. But if you want to draw more complicated 3D, Lightwave and other competotors are much much better (and more expensive). In Strata, I dislike the perspective view, even if it's a view from the top or left, it doen't let you position on object at the exact place. You'll always see it in perspective, which mean you see a lot what you don't need. The Flash rendering could be better. I tried several times to render an animation in Flash, but the app crashed every time, even on a clean computer. Also it lacks some import functions: when I import a 3DS file from Studio Max, it never displays nor renders the textures used in Max. Not possible ? Yes it is. I render now my Max animations in SWF flash format in Swift3Dv3 in Classic mode, and it renders the textures completely. Is Strata useless? No. because it has a very intiutive UI, it's very easy for you to learn 3D drawing and animation and it helps you understand the workflow. Professional use? No, I'll use something else instead
