RFI about Adobe Illustrator

Discussion in 'Professional Video Production' started by Terry O'Brien, Jul 24, 2005.

  1. The disc duplication service I am planning on using requires that the packaging and printing graphics be supplied on their templates and produced by
    one of a list of graphics programs. The list doesn't include Adobe Photoshop, which I have and am familiar with, but does list Adobe Illustrator.

    My question is: how difficult is it to use Illustrator, given my experience with Photoshop? I don't want to have to spend a couple of weeks to
    translate the graphics files to Illustrator format, as I have a deadline of the end of the month. Since I am looking to work with this service in the
    future, I would prefer to get Illustrator. The other alternative is to use duplication service's ability to process the existing graphics into their
    format, for a fee.

  2. This may be more of a graphics sofware question than a
    rec.video.production question (regardless of the connection
    with your disc duplicator, etc.)

    There appear to be newsgroups where you may get a better
    answer than here. For example...
    maybe others as well?

  3. I'm not sure off the top of my head but I think you can export to
    Illustrator. Or maybe Illustrator can read .psd files?

    I forgot. Give export a shot.

    You can import bitmaps into AI, so you could prep your stuff in PS and
    import it.

    AI is a LOT different than PS, but the type stuff is pretty simple. If
    your layouts are type-intensive, you shouldn't have much trouble.

    If they can't handle all the common formats, including graphic image
    formats, then they are lame. Go find another service.
