Red 4.3.3 & Media 100 1.0.1 EPS 3 Import Crash
on Jun 11, 2010 at 6:58:05 am

Hi,
Created a graphic in Flash CS3 (Mac).
Exported image as EPS 3 with preview,
Open M100, make a composition clip, edit/launch Red,
Add an 3D extrusion track.
Change the media to EPS File...,
...select my exported eps file,
spinning colours icon,
Media100 unexpectedly quits, =P.

If I export from flash as a png image, and then use Photoshop to save as a Photoshop EPS, it imports into Red / Media100 fine, but I don't see anything. I just don't see the graphic.

If I export to EPS from Flash 5 on PC, I get the same crash mentioned previously.

Symptoms are the same when selecting track->new media->EPS file... too.

Using Media Suite 1.0.1 with Red 4.3.3

Assume I'll have to import a regular pict, and trace it with the pen tool to get my extrusion.

Hi Andrew,
Is your graphic still in Vector form?
If it is rasterized I do not beleive it will work as an EPS in Boris.
Try exporting your Paths from Flash to Illustrator (if that can be done, i'm not sure as i'm not flash guy).
Save out of Illustrator as an illustrator 9 .ai file.

See if this gives you any positive results.

Big thanks, =D.
Exported as Illustrator 6 image (ai) out of Flash - this still showed up blank, but once opened in Illustrator and then saved as an illustrator file (ai, again) it worked fine, =D, and I now have my 3D extrusion, yay! =).

My mistake - exporting straight out of flash to an ai 6 file does work.
Latest CS3 illustrator file doesn't, but anything version 8 or below seems fine, =).

Excellent, glad this worked out for you.
Yes, it does seem that .ai 8 files are more reliable.

Good luck
