Reprinted from an Electric Rain Inc. press release:
BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 9 — Electric Rain, Inc.
announced the signing of an agreement to license their proprietary RAViX
II vector-rendering technology to Strata, makers of Strata 3Dpro, the
popular modeling and animation software application. RAViX II will provide a
future release of Strata 3Dpro with the power to export to Macromedia
Flash (.swf), Adobe Illustrator (.ai), .eps, and the latest XML-based
vector format, .svg.
Working as a Strata 3Dpro Power Module, RAViX II will render Strata 3Dpro
scenes with complete accuracy, while staying true to colors, lighting, camera
views and animations. RAViX II will provide Strata 3Dpro users with an
extensive array of vector output options including 3 levels of outlines, five
levels of cartoon shading, two levels of gradient shading, shadows and specular
highlights. RAViX II is able to handle models containing well over 200,000
polygons and the resulting files are fully optimized.
The agreement with Strata marks the first time that the RAViX II
technology has been integrated into a third party application via a licensing
contract. Through this agreement, Electric Rain’s brands and technology will
be promoted to the rapidly growing community of Strata 3D software
applications around the world, paving the way for similar licensing deals in
