Strata Foto 3D 1.5 Strata Foto 3D is a powerful tool for creating professional quality 3D content from still images. A wide range of objects can be modeled including those with holes and 'difficult' organic shapes. Using a conventional camera, photos of your object on a printed mat are taken from a number of viewpoints in front of a plain backdrop. The shape of the object and its surface color are automatically extracted from each photo and this information is used to build a high quality 3D object.
The model can be sent to a 3D layer in Photoshop CS3 EX or imported into a 3D editing and rendering software such as Strata 3D CX. Finally, the model can be imported into Strata Live 3D for interactive 3D display within a website, flash file, or an Adobe Acrobat PDF document (without any plug-ins).
The links between Photoshop CS3 and Strata's acclaimed 3D suite grow even stronger with the release of Strata Foto 3D 1.5. Like the other members of the suite, Strata 3D CX and Strata Live 3D, the connection goes both ways.
Strata Foto 3D includes a handy script to combine all your product shots in one Photoshop document for masking. Once you've masked the images, the Foto 3D plug-in can grab all your images in one shot, create the 3D model and pass it back to Photoshop CS3 Extended. With the full version of Foto 3D, rather than the 3D[in] version, you have access to larger textures, more detailed models, and more precise lens calibration.
All the features of Foto 3D[in] that you've seen so far are now completely within Strata Foto 3D 1.5.
Take full advantage of an integrated 3D/2D workflow
Strata Foto 3D 1.5 integrates with Photoshop CS3 in a number of key ways.
Create 3D Models From Images In Photoshop CS3 Extended
Use the included script to combine your product shots into one document for easy masking. Use the Foto 3D plugin to send all the images to Foto 3D for the creation of the model and texture, then return the model to Photoshop or save it for use in Strata 3D CX 5.5 or other 3D applications.
Take the guess-work out of creating photo-realistic 3D models.
Export Real-Time 3D Models Directly To Photoshop
Strata Foto 3D is the perfect way to start any 3D job. Capture your clients' organic and hard to model objects precisely and in record time.
Foto 3D objects work perfectly with our other Photoshop CS3 3D workflow tools, such as Live 3D to export real-time 3D PDFs and web pages, and Strata 3D for further 3D illustration, animation and photo-realistic rendering.
