Improved Illustrator Artwork Support

2019 August Edition and newer

This feature allows you to use vector artworks from Illustrator in Lotta, maintaining any scale or color edits you make in the vector file format. You can use such Ai/SVG files for artwork or piece assignable trim. There is no change in how you add such materials to your garments.

  • The expanded details available for vector artwork display in the Context view.
  • In addition, print-to-file and tech pack options now include support for vector output.

For more information, refer to:

Opening a Garment with an Ai File

When you open a garment with an existing Ai file in Lotta, and that file has not already been converted in Lotta to vector format, that file displays on the Materials tab with a warning icon.

Artwork not converted to vector format

If you hover your mouse over the thumbnail, a message is displayed confirming that the artwork is being treated as non-vector, inviting you to convert the artwork to vector format.

  • If you accept the invitation, the artwork (and all instances of it in the garment) are converted to vector format (SVG).

  • If you do not accept the invitation, the artwork continues to be treated as non-vector.

    • Later Conversion to Vector

      If you later decide that you want to utilize the enhanced support for vector artwork:

      1. If the Materials tab is not already open, on the Resources tabs, click Materials.

        Materials

      2. On the Materials tab, go to the artwork, and click Click to display a menu. A menu is displayed.

      3. Click Convert to Vector. The artwork is converted to vector format.

    • Later Conversion to Raster

      If, after converting an artwork file to vector, you later decide that you do not want to have the software treat the artwork as vector:

      1. If the Materials tab is not already open, on the Resources tabs, click Materials.

        Materials

      2. On the Materials tab, go to the artwork, and click Click to display a menu. A menu is displayed.

      3. Click Convert to Raster. The artwork is converted to raster format.
