Strata Foto 3D lets Photoshop users load a series of masked pictures to Foto 3D and return a real-time 3D object to a 3D layer in Photoshop CS3 and CS4 Extended. Powered by patented model and texture generation technology, Foto 3D allows a 3D model to be created quickly and inexpensively while requiring no technical skill or expensive hardware.
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 or CS4 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).
