In the next version, the EPS layer will also accept pictures like PNG, JPG and GIF files. Pictures are automatically traced, converted into a vector shape, correctly textured with the same picture and extruded with a nice reflectionmap!

On the left you can see a transparent PNG file as seen in Photoshop. On the right you can see the result traced and rendered by BluffTitler.

All the effects currently available in the EPS layer will also be available for the traced pictures.

Goal is to make it much easier to turn your logos into 3D animations.

If you want to help us testing the tracer, please send your logos to Thank you!

Great! Hopefully we will be able to color the edges or continue the logo colors along the depth of the edges. Nice Michiel!

IntroChamp, this is indeed an important point.

Since the vector outline does not 100% match the pixel outline, artifacts occur at the edges. A special FX fixes this by colouring the edges.
