MagicTracer Raster to Vector Conversion Software

MagicTracer Tutorials:

While there is no “magic bullet” when it comes to automatic vector conversion there are ways you can keep vector files portable and get better results overall. Here are some guidelines that will improve your results and efficiency that don’t take a whole lot of effort or time. Most of the following tips show simple techniques you can use to increase your efficiency with automatic vector conversion using MagicTracer’s tools.

Lesson 1: Resolution Matters

The image resolutions of raster files used in the vector conversion process will directly effect the resulting vector trace. Generally medium-resolution raster images provide better results when vectorized. But when you can’t a higher resolution image or even rescan the image, here’s something that you can do...

Lesson 2: Proper Scaling

When importing a drawing from one program to another the scale of the original drawing is frequently lost. If you import a DXF or WMF from one program to another the resulting size may be much too large or much too small. To make sure that all programs will import MagicTracer’s vector results at precisely the size you want...

Lesson 3: Importing to Other Programs

Getting vectors into other vector-editing programs can sometimes lead to strange results. For example Illustrator may add weird loops to the curves while Flash and Freehand will simply not import them. There are very simple ways to make these programs import the vector result from MagicTracer with all the curves intact...

Lesson 7: Overview of the MagicTracer Raster to Vector Process

This segment from the MagicTracer Documentation explains the goals of the Image and Raster tools are to enhance and refine the raw image data to make it more easily interpretable as outlines or edges. The goals of the Vector tools are to create, edit, and refine vector entities so that they reproduce, as accurately as possible, the desired elements of the original raster image...
