Im trying to export a logo with text from illustrator to c4d. I save as ill 8 then open in c4d and my logo is there but firstly it is surrounded but a very large spline which I need to delete then another one colorer to the logo which I also delete. Second the layers that overlap in illustrator are opening in C4D as one object. For e.g. I have a filled hexagon on top of a filled star then on top of that some text. The hexagon ends up being a hole through the star. This is not what I want.
I have tried searching for tuts on this and all I can find are lame youtube ones that dont explain anything except how to save in illy then open in C4D. I need some more details about ow to save and open the way I want it. I have tried putting on separate layers in illy but this made no difference.
I believe you have to save the Illustrator Document as an Illustrator 8 eps file. Haven't done it in a long time since finding this very useful plugin call CV-Artsmart. It lets you copy/paste from Illustrator to C4D!
