No, that removes the wireframe and does isolate the type but I still can't take the type, independent of the wireframe, as a vector file into Photoshop and apply it to my product shot.
Thanks, Scott, for the response.
Perhaps you want to use the 3D feature in PS instead?
However what Scott said is a good way *** you can place it as a smart object that way if you want to edit the text you can double click the smart object edit the symbol in PS and it will update for you if you save what you do to the smart object in Illustrator.
And I know it is still on the wire frame but this is doing what you want just not working the way you visualized it to work.
Have you tried expanding the effect and using Copy/Paste?
Using Scott's method, I think, doesn't leave me with a resizeable vector file as Illustrator rasterizes the image upon its completion. Deal breaker as the bitmap in PShop could be any size and I must have absolutely perfect text flexible for different resolution applications (poster to mini insert).
I'm not familiar enough with PShop's 3D capabilities but the investigating I've done so far hasn't yielded anything useful.
Well this might require you to develop a workflow that will get the
job done but is different from what you had it seems to me you want
what every we suggest to
address an issue no one has the ability to do.
So again I stress the use of a new workflow using smart objects.
You should consider we showed you a couple of ways to create what you
want in Illustrator, but we cannot go beyond that point as there is
the element of the new application, which is your RIP.
Without having this software we do not know if this is user error or
software or hardware.
So you would have to give us some information and at some point it
would be helpful if you shared your knowledge about the RIP and how it
works with Illustrator.
For instance can it flatten the transparency or does it need
Illustrator to help it, what types of settings have used for your RIP
and is it up to date?
If you see what I mean. We did tell you how to get the key line made?
Scott, You are right, it is not rasterized when pasted correctly, THANK YOU! Other than finding it quirky to position type on the wireframe, (I haven't yet figured out how to keep the bounding box from snapping to defaults -not all the time though! - this is just what I need. We constantly get requests to rework a previous shot to a different purpose, and res, thus the requirement to have a vector type layer.
Wade, I recognize the need for flexibility and the possibility of new workflows so your comments are appreciated. Thankfully, Scott's solution didn't require such a change here and we're able to keep working with minimum interruption.
Thank you both for your time and advice.
