Has anyone successfully managed to create EPS from Affinity designer for use in BT. I know bixangelo can be used for EPS but most of my design work for logos is done in Affinity Designer so it would be nice not to have to duplicate the work. I can trace (which I have done before) but EPS would of course give a cleaner result.

If anyone has export settings would be grateful. I have tried editing with limited success on existing EPS, but the frame on the design is off the canvas and if I move it, the file becomes invalid.

Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Thanks - Bob

I tried, it's not great, but you have to export to PNG with a transparent background.

directly EPS does not load it

Do you want to use it as a sketch or as an EPS to extrude 3D?

Have you tried a picture layer with "Extrude Picture" effect?

Thanks Franco, yeah I've used the trace PNG but because EPS is proper vector data it would be smother. Trace is ok but on a huge plasma display the limitations are more noticeable.

So the answer would be for both sketch and extrude. Don't mind getting bixangelo it's more about not duplicating design time if possible :-)

Unfortunately, it would take a converter.
Bixelangelo does not load EPS of other programs.
I do not know how others do with EPS

I didn't think this question was going to be an easy one. There's not a lot of info about the EPS restrictions of blufftitler in the forum or manual.

Michiel do you have any further info which could help us work out what we need to do to make this work please?

Here's the relevant info from the user guide:

Maybe your EPS file does not contain vector data.

If you still have trouble importing your EPS file, e-mail it to us and we'll take a look at it.

Thanks Michiel I will do a bit more experimenting and let you know :-)
