There are a couple of Glass Textures in the Resources Palette you can use to create glass panes like that.

Thanks for your reply Brian.

I'm an absolute newbie when it comes to this.

I'm willing to learn, so could you please tell which guides are the best for me to read to enable to learn more about 3d boxes and created the clear perspec look.

many thanks

The first place to start is the User Guide of course. The first chapter is a tutorial on creating an apple and walks you through the process of creating the geometry, adding textures and lighting then finally rendering it. After that is the The Art & Science of Strata 3D CX 5 tutorial CD you received with the program if you bought it from us. If you purchased the program through a distributor you should consider getting it from our online store.

For more advanced training Chris Tyler has recently released The Art & Science of Strata 3D CX 5 Volume II, a two DVD set of more than 42 hours of screen capture videos.

There are also some web sites with Strata tutorials.

Harder than it looks.... Easy to get something different, hard to duplicate. But that is me.

Here is my version:


The edge highlight is difficult, and the reflected image makes a big difference.
