Browsing the categories, I’ve noticed not one but two separate categories for 3D stuff in the Graphics section. Knowing that Illustrator renders 3D too, I was looking for its equivalent in the Vectors section but found none.
I was wondering, was that an oversight of mine, or is there really no specific place to upload 3D vector renders? Or perhaps they go into the “Graphics” 3D renders category too?
I’m eager to upload some files, but I’d like to avoid miscats. Thanks!
Thank you for considering it, Collis. I hope it it will be a favorable decision.
I understand that in the meantime we can include the source png as a secondary option. This could be a compromise in some cases.
However, as another suite user, I can verify MBMedia’s findings.
Today I wanted to turn some of my Fireworks vectors into suitable EPS via Illustrator; to do that, I had to strip the file down to bare bones and recreate the assets in AI. Nothing but the outline survived from the original Fireworks file.
In this case, I was lucky to get good results with some work. Other times, I guess we just have to flatten some assets or do without.
No one is uploading any logo and there would be no trademark law violation as the current logo belongs to our charity
But if the file is uploaded and sold through Graphic River, you will probably not be the only one who could purchase that file. And then someone else could be using your logo.
Maybe I’m wrong, but my impression is that this board is for generic requests, like “I want a blue joystick icon”; ie. files that can be sold to anyone else as well without any problems.
I was wondering about that too.
Seeing how system .ico and .icns files are optional, my impression is that they’re for both desktop and web use, depending on what sort of files the pack contains. But, let’s hear what’s the official word about it.
Oh man! I missed the opportunity for my files to get reviewed in the first batch. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.
Collis, congrats on the 1000th post, by the way!
Nice to see so many people use Fireworks here. It makes Graphic River feel like home already.
not at the moment, it’s all EPS as that is the most interchangeable format and I think most apps can export to it. I think Fireworks can
As of CS4 , Fireworks cannot export EPS directly. For vector graphics, our best bet is probably to export the final fw.png as .ai and then export EPS from Illustrator. Or we could import Fireworks assets one-by-one into AI, and then go from there.
But, like MBMedia noted, exporting will lose many native Fireworks options. Live filters are the most obvious, but auto shapes, smart symbols and custom styles will go down the drain as well.
Even as a prospective customer, I’d more likely buy a vector file marked as a native Fireworks png, knowing that I can open it in my favorite application and retain all editing functionalities that I expect from it.
Fireworks users have little use for EPS files, since most of those files are flattened and rasterized on import1, which makes them practically useless as vectors.
Bottom line: enabling Fireworks pngs on Graphic River would not be for convenience’s sake. It could increase both the pool of available content and the number of interested customers.
