I'm looking into submitting vectors to stock sites like shutterstock. One of their requirements is that the file is saved as AI8 or EPS10: (tip #1 here: https://www.shutters...the-first-time)
My question is - what EPS version does AD export? I'm asking because apparently, using things like transparencies, gradients etc results in bitmapping with AI8, based on what's mentioned here:
"When exporting to EPS-8, you will most certainly get bitmapping if you use these effects and techniques:
1. Transparency 2. Opacity Masks 3. Radial Gradient 4. Linear Gradient, sometimes, not always, depends on opacity masks used, or if output Transparency setting is not 100% Vectors on the Raster/Vector Balance (in the EPS Options window, see below) 5. Drop Shadow 6. Gaussian or Radial Blur
When exporting to EPS-10, most of the problems encountered in outputting to EPS-8 are eliminated, except bitmapping will still occur with Drop Shadow and Gaussian or Radial Blur."
