...and with Bezier curves so you can tweak points and directions, you can do reasonably well. I must take a look at some software my wife uses to convert bitmap drawings into vectors which then get digitised for a computer sewing machine. It seems to do better than things like Adobe Illustrator.
Hope this helps, in trace bitmap I used following options
2. corner fit 43%
3. noise filter 10
4. bitmap fading none
seemed to come out ok, I'm not always so lucky
hi thanks for having a look for me i have to try in my program as when i try ed to open your saved file it can up that yours it a later version than mine :-( i will try the setting thank you
I've saved 2 files to dxf, heart1 is a single vector, heart2 is the bitmap tracing of your image.
cross fingers :)
I do a lot of bitmap tracing and the only way I can get a nice clean result is to either use the trace command and then node edit the resulting vectors or manually draw over a background image, drawing and tracing with vectors is nothing like drawing with a pencil, takes loads of practice.
