My knowledge of illustrator is limited to copying whatever is in there and placing it into photoshop where my knowledge is still rather restricted!
So I have received a CS3 illustrator file and done my usual copy and paste (into Photoshop-CS3)- this time as a vector smart object. Once I have resized and prepped the image, I would usually export it as a tiff and then import that tiff into FCP 6. However, in this case, FCP doesn't recognize the tiff.
Also, I need to save transparency, so jpeg is a last resort.
Is there a way to adapt the image in photoshop to make it readable for FCP?
Right ... Video formats only read RGB. And FCP can read a layered photoshop image by the way. When you import a PSD file into FCP, it will create a Sequence with each layer seperated. You can then select the layer or layers you want to use in your edit. Good Luck with your projects.
