Is Painter a vector based program?
show user profile  Joey Parker Jr.
I need to create 2d vector art with textures and I don't think Illustrator is going to cut it.
Does any one know if Painter is vector or raster based?

Why wouldn't Illustrator cut it? I thought that was up there with the best?

OK I just downloaded the Painter11 free 30 day trial.
Damn it's sweet! But not vector.
So any ideas on creating a noise type texture in Illustrator?

You can TRY using Vector Magic. Coverts raster to vector pretty well.

http://vectormagic.com/home

supposed to be the best at what it does.
Try the demo.

IMHO, Illustrator's bitmap tracer works better than verctormagic.

Reality Man, thanks! That might do it.

Matty, I can't find anything on illustrators bitmap tracer. I'm using cs3
