HELP? Old ANA DesignArt software

Posted on Mon, 11 Oct 2004 at 18:36



I'm attemting to help a friend who has been in the sign business for years but knows very little about compuer software. He is using a program called ANA DesignArt. it's either version 3.0 or perhaps a tad newer but the 3.0 book is all he could find.

He's running this on a 486 windows computer. I tried importing Adobe Illustrator artwork into it for a job he's doing and it would not import. The Adobe file was 10.0. After reading his manual I am guessing that the AI file needs to be much much older such as 4 or 5?

is there an update to this software out there? I am NOT a sign maker but I am a silkscreen printer. He periodically cuts out artowrk for us to use on his vinyl cutter so it would be a mutual benefit to help him move into the future with his software providing it's not horrendously expensive.

ANY HELP ANYONE COULD PROVIDE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Thanks!

Anagraph was a leader some years back but have failed to keep up with their design art pro. We are operating 4.0 and have been for abour 5 years now, nothing is newer to my knowledge. We tell all who send us art to export at a version 5 or less if possible
We added Corel to our computer for the purpose of opening files, then cut and paste to ana when we need to plot.

The anagraph software works great, I still use it on my computer.

Here's your problem.
Anagraph is an 8 bit program.
So newer programs that are 32 bit or 64 bit, have a lot of problems iin understanding the software.

Here's what you do.
Export your graphic as an .AI file..... let use Test.ai

You'll need a program that can interpret from 8 bit to 16 bit. Corel 5 is perfect for that purpose. I 've heard Corel 6 and sometimes 7 works also.... but the best success is Corel 5.

Import Test.ai into Corel 5.
Save the file as Test.cdr
Open the file in any other Corel Version from 6-12

What your doing is going from 8 bit, to 16 bit, to 32 bit. Once your got it into a 16 bit version, you can do anything you want.

Sign Wizard 4 or 5 is another program that will open the Test.ai file without problems.

Have fun

I tried saving as 7.0 EPS and importing. The file imported OK but when re-sized it was completely jagged. It looked more like a bitmap image than a vector image.

any ideas what I could have done to keep the vector format?

thanks,
Susie

Does cutting and pasting maintain the sharp edges when resized? I can export from AI down to (I think) 4.0. I exported in 7.0 EPS but when imported and resized it comes in as a jagged bitmapped image.

Hi Richard,

I'm back to playing with the ANA software again. I'm a little confused. If ANA is 8 bit, why do I want to convert to 32 bit. Wouldn't I want to go backward down to 8 bit?

I don't have Corel 5. I have AI 10.0 which exports as many different things. Have a choice for that?

thanks for the info. I did get it to import from EPS 7.0 but it "bitmapped the image when resized and wouldn't import it at all as vector. It said there was an embedded bitmap image. I have no idea what it was referring to. It was straight type.
Myriad Bold. my image was 6" x 6" and we resized to 48" x 48". Vector images should maintain their integrity but this didn't.

I'm still stymied.

thanks for all your suggestions. I'll try more if you have them.

Susie

Kanye West makes his runway shoes with Giuseppe Zanotti, but for sneakers, he’s a Nike man. (Well, with occasional pit stops at Vuitton.) The company announced today the official release date of its second sneaker with the rapper-turned-designer, the Air Yeezy II, which hits stores globally June 9. There are a wealth of minute details to puzzle over, from the “anaconda-texture leather” panels to the nods to ancient civilizations, like the hieroglyphics on the loop strap spelling out YZY and the falcon insignia on the tongue. (The Ancient Egyptian god Horus, god of the sky, war, and hunting, was commonly depicted with the head of a falcon.) And those looking to walk a mile in Kanye’s shoes will be particularly pleased. These boast a slimmed-down silhouette originally derived from tailoring the prototypes directly to West’s foot.
