importing from illustrator
on May 23, 2005 at 3:35:25 am

Hey guys,
I am a relative necomer to the Maya scene. I have created a typface in Illustrator which I want to import into Maya. I have tried:
- saving my Illustrator file as every version (i.e 1 - 10)
- saved my file as an .eps and ai file
- oulitned the font and ungrouped it
- made sure that Maya knows it's an .eps or Illustrator file

I am fast running out of ideas. If anyone could help that would more than appriciated!
many thanx
D.

hmm, usually i can just outline the text, save it as an .eps in version 7 or below and maya will import it fine. does it give you any errors in maya or can u not even select the .eps file
