Strata is offering the power of 3D at the unprecedented price of only $49.95. This special price includes the training CD PhotoshopCafe Live! along with a full version of Strata 3Dplus.

The award winning training CD shows users how to create surreal 3D effects like beveled metal text, glass text, water reflections – and more – all in Photoshop! Strata 3Dplus provides designers with real 3D tools including modeling, texturing, lighting, rendering and animation.

PhotoshopCafe Live! alone has a suggested retail price of $59.95 while Strata 3Dplus is normally priced at $249 – making this limited time offer an exceptional value, saving the user over $250.

With PhotoshopCafe Live! users will learn the inside tricks the pros use to create textures and do sophisticated image manipulation. Author Colin Smith shows users how to add lightning bolts, utilize the history brush and master compositing tricks. The CD runs full 800×600 video at 30 fps on the desktop without the need for any plug-ins. The CD is self-contained and runs on both Windows and Mac OSX.

Strata 3Dplus is the powerful sibling to Strata 3Dpro. Though not the top line offering from Strata, the “plus” version offers many of the high-end features users would only expect from an application costing hundreds of dollars – not under $50. Users will find powerful spline modeling, multilayered texturing, photo-real rendering and even time-varying animation included in this easy-to-use application.
