Is export path to illustrator the only way to get a psd w/ clipping path to show up in Illustrator?

I'm wasting time having to place my image in Illustrator then manually line up the clipping path. You used to be able to save a files with a clipping path as an EPS in photoshop, select "retain vector data", place in illustrator and hit cmd Y to see the clipping path. I need the image and the clipping path in Illustrator and the image is too complex to create a mask in Illustrator. I tried to save it as an EPS but "retain vector data" is grayed out.

    Save a PSD. If you need to access the path, then embed it (the image in Illustrator).

    If you just want to use the path for clipping, define it as Clipping path in Photoshop.
