3DS Max to CDR? – Forum & Message Boards

a dreamstime customer is asking me if I can make available a 3D rendering (done in 3DS MAX) as a cdr file. I've googled for the last hour but did not find a good solution and I don't know anything about corel draw. unfortunately not (that is what I tried first). I did google a lot and people keep saying that you may be able to import EPS or AI into corel draw, but that it is not always possible. In any case, the client requests a cdr, I guess he won't be satisfied if I upload something else as an alternative format. This seems to be more complicated than expected. It seems that there is no easy way to get a Corel Draw cdr file out of 3DS max :-( I don't know whether this page will be of any help, it includes a list of files that can be imported into Corel Draw, one of which was 'CGM - Computer Graphics Metafile'. What I did it to upload the requested photos (there are two in the meantime, one for ai (adobe illustrator) and one for cdr (corel draw) as EPS files. That seems to be lossless and importable into both illustrator and corel draw. I'm not sure what use it would be in Corel once exported. It would be about the same as using a jpg wouldn't it? Since it's not an original cdr file it wouldn't be editable. Or am I missing something? I would think the only reason to ask for an additional (vector) format would be because you want to edit the vector in some way or have it in it's original form to make larger or smaller. But if the file wasn't created in Corel it won't be any different than importing a jpg at that point. If it were an EPS it might be scalable in corel better than a jpg but that's about it. I have vectorized some of my designs done in painter but that was a royal pain in the you know what. One had 13 layers and I vectorized each one separately so the layers would remain intact. But I'm not going to do that for something that is gradient as it wouldn't work. you render your work with this PLUGIN and get a file EPS or AI, which you can actually edit in Corel as a vector file AND SAVE AS CDR Quoted Message: I'm not sure what use it would be in Corel once exported.

I don't know much about 3D, but EPS files can definitely contain fully editable vector data for 2D artwork, rasterized image data, or both at the same time. One reason someone may want vector when you wouldn't expect it is to make spot color seperations for printing. It is tricky to make color seperations for spot colors from raster artwork. Most printing is done in process color so its not an issue that comes up all the time around here, but for more budget concious projects a company may decide to print in only 1 or 2 colors - in which case you need 'spot-color' seperations. Sometimes, for really acurate colors, the two methods are combined too. Source.
