Importing Illustrator files Importing Illustrator files teedotdesign (TechnicalUser) (OP) 1 Feb 05 11:10 How do I get illustrator files into carrara so that i can work with them RE: Importing Illustrator files watertownsalt (TechnicalUser) 9 Feb 05 10:35 i generally save the files as eps and as an older version like version 6. RE: Importing Illustrator files Tom8059 (TechnicalUser) 14 May 05 06:46 I don't think there is any need to save your illustrator files as anything else. Of course this depends on what you are doing, because your question is very vague. I think you could always import vector curves and extrude them in the spline modeler or use them paths but, depending on which version you have, eventually you could import a jpeg or bitmap (and maybe other picture formats) onto the working box and trace objects in the picture to get a profile to extrude.Further, and this might be the answer you are looking for, you don't import the *.ai file itself! WHILE WORKING IN CorelDraw OR Illustrator you select the vector-based 2D shape/object(s) you want to use in Carrara to model a 3D object (based on that shape). You EXPORT or SAVE AS while the object(s) are still selected and choose SELECTED ONLY (or something like that depending on your app. and version) and give it a recognizable name and location. NOW Carrara knows what you are talking about and will gladly IMPORT that object so you can work with it. Give it a try!
