+ Everyone is invited for the wedding of adobe illustrator & Mental Ray, RSVP to Letterbox Animation Studios. The integration of the world's best 2D renderer and the world's best 3D renderer: IQ.

This means that for any texture, instead of creating a bitmap version, you can use the Illustrator file directly. So you don’t have to go though the intermediate step of the bitmap. This means files sizes are massively reduced. E.g. if the Illustrator file is about 200-300k, a bitmap could end up being 200-300 meg (depending on scale / resolution), vectors can be a magnitude of order smaller. You can zoom (dolly) in closer to the image, and it just does not get pixilated, it always stays sharp. For more information, Click here!
