I've been trying to decide on a file format to save a multitude of "master" images for a game project. The final product will be vector images. I would like to have the master copies of the images saved in a format that saves layers and all other important pieces of data for editor-side modifications later if needed.
I've been trying to decide between the PSD format or Illustrator's AI format. The most important fact I need to know about the PSD format here that I don't already know to make an informed decision is whether the PSD format saves path data. If it does is there any reason that would make it inferior to the AI format in regards to the manner in which it does?
