Xara releases new low price, download-only Xara3D 6

April 01, 2009

​Launched today is a new version of Xara3D 6. Just like the no-frills airlines Xara have launched a stripped down version - it's a download-only – no CDs, no free Webster and no manual – just the program itself and associated resources, such as sample images, textures and fonts. Users can now buy this version for only US\$29 (+ VAT in EU).

The boxed retail version remains but the price has been adjusted to US\$49 (+ VAT in EU) slightly lower than it was before. So now there are two versions, the download costing US\$29 and the boxed including Xara3D and Webster CDs and a manual for US\$49. It operates on Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/Vista.

Xara3D can be used to create top quality still and animated 3D text and graphics, such as titles, headings, buttons and logos – perfect for web pages, mailshots and presentations. It’s also extremely popular with Adobe Photoshop owners for creating 3D typographic effects in combination with Photoshop.

"Using 3D software is notoriously hard.It's not just expensive, but the UI, the usability of almost all existing 3D software is intimidating to say the least. This is not so with Xara3D. We call it simple-ware - the easiest, simplest 3D software you'll ever likely to come across. It's designed to do one thing - create stunning 3D text headings, and to do that job supremely well with the absolute minimum learning curve". said Charles Moir, "Now with the launch of a download only version at a very low price, it's affordable for anyone wanting to create high quality 3D headings and logos in seconds. With millions of downloads, Xara3D remains Xara's most popular product."
