Can't Vectorize an image in Vinylmaster Cut

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have read through the forum and tried every solution that was suggested with no luck.

I have tried importing the image in different formats from jpg to gif and still can't get it to vectorize.

I have also tried different images and have only been able to vectorize a small number of them...

I have been a Sign Blazer user for a long time and even though it is still working I wanted to get a more modern version of cutting software working so I can start using that. I can import the same file into Sign Blazer and vectorize it with no problem.

I have tried importing files, copying and pasting files and even acquiring them into Vinylmaster with very little luck of getting any of them to vectorize.

If I export the file from Sign Blazer and import into Vinylmaster the file looks and cuts perfectly but I would like to be able to build new files in Vinylmaster using images.

Any suggestions and help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks

Dale

Where did you buy your version of Vinyl Master Cut?  If directly from Vinyl Master website, then it does not have the vector program in it for Vinyl Master Cut.  Only the UScutter version of Vinyl Master Cut has the vector program.

It came with the new cutter I bought from US Cutter. I have been able to vectorize a small number of files with it just not all files.

Then it should have the vector program in it.  Contact UScutter tech support or Vinyl Master tech support.

I have watched the video and am doing everything correctly and as I stated I can vectorize some images but not all. They are all black and white images like the one in the pictures I posted so there is nothing complicated about them.

Thanks

What exactly is it that you're doing and what results are you getting? The second screen shot above looks good and you just need to click the trace button.

Re-Save your Original image in a Bitmap Program like Photoshop or Gimp as a .jpg with a

slightly larger background so that the Black in your Example Image

does not touch the outside edges of the Background.

Alternately, you could remove the white background in a bitmap Program and save as a .png with a

TRANSPARENT background and Trace in VinylMaster..

Then, Vector Trace.

Yes the second screen shot looks fine but when I hit trace the results I get are the 3rd screen shot..

I added a small white border around the image and imported it into vinylmaster and it vectorized with no problem! THANKS!!!!

Apparently if any part an image is close to or touching the edge vinylmaster does not vectorize it properly, even though other programs may vectorize it vinylmaster won't, by adding a small border around the image it worked like a champ!

Thanks again skarekrow for the solution.....
