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.

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
