what have i done wrong?
on May 14, 2006 at 3:06:18 am

Hi,

I was trying to create a 3D object in proAnimator (and in invigorator) from an AI file.

ProAnimator says "there is no usable vector path in your file" and closes.

How did i create the AI file? I simply opened Illustrator CS2, grabbed the pencil tool and drawn. I then saved as AI. And i clearly see the drawn object within Illustrator.

Was there something alse i should do in AI? what does this error message mean? What is a "usable vector path" and how is it different from what iam seeing in Illustrtor right now?

Thank you
PS: I am totally new to illustrator.

Did you try saving as an eps?

Thank you guys for being helpful :)

Try exporting as an eps, then exporting as an AI file rather than saving as one. You may need to back track and save/export as Illustrator 8 format.
