    Live tracing a jpg gave me a white square with a few vectors

    CalisArt

      I used the 3D Revolve effect to create a sphere. I then "expanded appearance" to try and "subtract from shape area" a portion of the sphere. It ended badly. So I copied and pasted the sphere into Photoshop, removed the portions I wanted gone and placed it into Illustrator in hopes "live trace" would save my bacon. It didn't. When I select the graphic and choose expand "live trace", it gives me a white square with a few vector points in it. What am I doing wrong?

       

      Thanks in advance!
