View Full Version : .eps files not converting

07-04-2006, 08:19 PM
I have an image that I cant seem to get converted correctly to an .eps file to import. I am using PSP by Jasc and have tried to convert this file as an .eps or .ai file. I have successfully imported other files but the conversion process in PSP seems to suck.


Can someone that uses Adobe try and convert this file and see if this is the problem.

The problem you were having has to do with you using an image editor instead of a vector drawing program. When exporting to eps using an image editor it is saved as a raster image instead of vector. Lightwave only understands vector eps and ai files.
I took the liberty and traced the image for you. Attached is an ai file that does load into lightwave. I tested this with ver. 8.5 of lightwave, it may be possible for older versions to have trouble depending on the number of nodes making up the ai file.
Note: There was an error trying to upload to the forum, so it is temporarily on my website.
