Hi,

I really need some help, I am on a project deadline.
I am using AE 7, Illustrator CS3, and Zaxwerks 3D Invigorator AE plugin.

I can not import a basic .ai file into my Zaxwerks 3D Invigorator software. When I import I get a message that reads, "There were no usable vector paths in this file."

Does anyone have this problem? I have already tried saving my .ai file as CS1 an CS2. Still no good.

Please help!

John.

Make sure that the "use Compression" box is not checked when saving your file.

let us know if this doesn't help. You could then send me your file here: serge_01 (at) (msn) (dot) (com)

Salut.

At the moment my logo is just a circle I made in Illustrator to see if I can extrude. I can't even do that. I still get the same error message. I can use all the other functions but importing an illustrator file just wont work.

Did you do what I already suggested?

Did you give a fill color to your object in IL or at least a stroke?

Without seeing your file I can't really say what you did wrong.

It's just a circle with a stroke. I think it's my software. Because if I have just a circle with a stroke and I can't import that then there is something wrong.

John,

Which version number of Invigorator are you using?

Jon

I'm running AE7 on a G4 powerbook with Zaxwerks 3D Invigorator Pro 4.09.

I did a test where I saved down to every version of Illustrator on my computer and I can only seem to open a illustrator file if it is saved to version 10 even with all check boxes unchecked in the save dialog box
(I left .pdf checked)

So problem is solved, now I just have to figure out how to use that function :)

Thanks for the help and the super quick response.

John.
