i'm looking for a way to import vector graphics as splines into 3ds max that does not involve adobe illustrator at all. are there any alternatives? i usually use inkscape for the (rather small and simple) vector jobs that come up in day-to-day work. would love to be able to somehow import these without bugging the co-worker - who got illustrator installed - for every little thing.
- AI export (preferably old illustrator file formats since CS ones do not import into max correctly) for inkscape?
- SVG/EPS import plugins/scripts for max?
- converters which can output AI files?
- alternative (simple, preferably free) vector drawing apps that do speak a compatible flavour of the AI format?
i'm open to all suggestions.
