Illustrator file not showing up in C4D

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm trying to import a illustrator file (logo) into my C4D Project, but when I import I get a blank project. I have saved the illustrator file as a illustrator 8 file when importing.

(this is what I get when importing the illustrator 8 file).

 

Anybody else experience this problem and have a solution?

 

Thank you!

This is unlikely to be a bug, it'll be something wrong with the construction of the curves in that ai file. So we'll be needing to see that - pls upload it.

  • Ah I see. Will upload a new file with a text logo. Can't upload the previous one (client work). But I get the same bug with this one as before. Any text or image illustrator file I import, I get a blank project in C4D.

    Here is the file. 

    Thanks!

    I'm not the person to help with this as I don't have ai, but thanks for uploading the file - now the people that do will have everything they need to diagnose....

    In that particular case, the type is still a font, you need to "create outlines" for that in AI, once you save that as AI V8 then it opens fine, at least in my R18, but I get the same result if using just the native font version. I think Cinema doesn't see anything in the font version, hence the empty manager.

    Yeah that make sense for text, thanks! The problem is that I get the same error when I have a illustration :/.

    Post an example your actually having trouble with if you like, you could also try CV artsmart if you have access to cinevercity.

    Could of course be an R21 thing

    Ok so I feel like an idiot right now but the illustrator file I tried to import to C4D was a jpeg image I saved as an illustrator 8 file.

     

    I did the create outlines on it and saved it - imported to C4D - works like a charm!

     

    Thank you very much for clearing this up and helping an idiot in need :).
