Electric Rain Inc. has announced an agreement that will bring its RAViX II vector rendering technology to Strata 3Dpro. Electric Rain and Strata have signed an agreement to bring RAViX II to a future version of the 3D rendering program. With RAViX II on board, Strata 3Dpro will be able to export to Macromedia Flash format, Adobe Illustrator, Encapsulated PostScript and SVG format.
RAViX II will be incorporated into Strata 3Dpro as a Power Module. The module will include a variety of vector output options — three levels of outlines, five levels of cartoon shading, two levels of gradient shading, shadows and specular highlights. Electric Rain claimed that RAViX II could handle models containing more than 200,000 polygons in fully optimized files.
Electric Rain also makes Swift 3D, a standalone 3D to vector graphics application.
