OK I did some web sleuthing and answered at last on part of
my own question:

Sadly, as Microsoft bought and snuffed out "Living Cells"
it appears that Adobe bought and buried Canoma...
Their new product "Atmosphere" which was committed to
incorporating Canoma technology, also died...

Leaving us with no easy 2D to 3D tool box.

Any thoughts?

In  Peace
