Notes about editing AI vehicle template files in Omega

After importing the AI file into Omega, it may be the case that the vehicle outline is difficult to select. This problem may be fixed in newer versions of Omega, so please refer to the User Guide that was provided with your version. Regardless, the following comments may help.

When the AI file has been imported, the vehicle outlines will have a white fill color, and a black stroke will be created about the outline

The stroke is “broken” into segments that may be individually selected. Unfortunately, these segments denote the vehicle outline edge and will interfere with selecting the white body shape of the vehicle.

Select one of the stroke segments, and then use the cursor keys to nudge the stroke away from the vehicle body shape. Then click the exposed portion of the body, such that it is now selected. A color may be applied to the body (was required), and the line segment nudged back into place.

When the vehicle body has been modified, select all five of the vehicle views and perform a Group operation.

As a suggestion, set the background color of the workspace, such that the vehicle outline is readily visible.

Scaling Images in Graphix Advantage

When scaling an image by 2,000% in Graphixs Advantage, the scaling must be performed in two steps:

  1. Scale the image by 1,000% (i.e. by a factor of 10)
  2. Scale the image by 200% (i.e. by a factor of 2)

As a result of steps (1) and (2), the image will be scaled by 10 times 2 = 20 times.

Seamless textures tile infinitely without visible seams. Also known as bitmap patterns, seamless patterns, tiled backgrounds or seamless tiles among a long list of names. Pattern edges blend perfectly with adjoining pieces! This allows you to fill any sized area, even a large vehicle wrap, with the seamless texture of your choice. Seamless textures are not operating system dependent (PC, Mac, Linux, 32-bit, 64-bit, etc.) and work in all versions of any software that supports seamless textures/patterns.
