I'm having a problem with getting transparency out of illustrator. I've made an image in a 3D program that a client would like to use as a logo and they need it supplied in an EPS format from illustrator. I've exported a still frame image as a .tiff from my 3D program and brought it into illustrator. When I save it out as an EPS from illustrator, it has a transparent background when I re-open it in illustrator but not when I open it in photoshop or indesign. Now, I know this is taking a raster file and saving it out as an eps, which usually works much nicer with vector graphics, but I was still hoping to have the transparency carry through as if the image was entirely vector.
Any idea of a way to save this file out with transparency from illustrator as an eps or is this just not possible with that file format and a raster graphic? If it isn't possible, any idea of a replacement file format that would work as well to preserve high quality and transparency, .tiff or targa?
