Pros: Strata is easy to use yet has so much functionality you can continue learning and improving your skills

Cons: Render time for high resolution images is long, but the final result is Worth the wait. Scene navigation could be improved

My experience was positive and quick to learn

Pros: What I liked most about the software is that it was pretty easy to manipulate the shapes. We could also bring in our own model library and use it easily.

Cons: What I liked least about the software was it was difficult to understand the way the layers were organized.

Overall: It was nice we could use it to price displays out.

I model my exhibit designs in VectorWorks and render them in Strata because of the quality of light.

Pros: The precise control of Soft Shadows gives the renders greater sense of reality. I have used it since version 3 about 20 yrs now. I have used 3d studio, Form - Z, Cinema4D at professional level proficiency but I always come back to Strata.I can get the same or better images from Strata as I can from any of the other professional rendering packages for far less of an investment in expense and time. It also has some very sophisticated Polyspline SDS (subdivision surfaces) modeling and other features that would cost more in other programs. There is great variety and depth of tutorials on StrataCafe.com.

Cons: It is quirky and a little slow to model and texture designs, but what do you expect for a program that cost 1/5 of the others.

Overall: The cost savings is shocking considering the capability of the program. The support and tutorials from both Strata and StrataCafe, has been very helpful. They have even helped me learn other programs faster and easier.
