from AutoCAD we export to an .eps file. this vector based file was perfect for beginning Photoshop renderings. it seems from REVIT that the eps option isnt there. so far the only option i have found that is remotely acceptable is goign into a .dwf, then into a pdf from that, and beginning the photoshop coloring process. the problem with this is any solid fills i do show up solid white, and that is unacceptable. how does everyone achieve the photoshop type colored files? am i overlooking something completely obvious? i am disappointed with REVIT's ability to export into any image file, as the resolution seems to be restricted to a very low number. any suggestions?

Typically i just print from Revit to PDF using Adobe Acrobat 7.0x This retains all the vector information so it can be opened and used in photoshop. I'd also check your solid white fill settings... Solid white fills can be achieved in two ways, one exports better then the other: 1. Solid Fill, Opaque, White 2. No Pattern, Opaque, White (best for exporting) HTH.

the no pattern thing will help a ton in the short term. i got an error message when trying to export to pdf about missing fonts. is this just because my office insists on using archaic fonts? and a few different font types? but it even wiped out my Arial fonts so something else is up. Thanks again Mr. Spot
