I have been trying to save an .ai vector as an .eps, but no matter what settings I try, the result is a heavily pixelated raster image. How can I get a clean vector EPS instead? What causes Illustrator to act up like this?
I save as Illustrator 10 version, 8-bit transparent, "Include CMYK postscript" checked, tried both checked/unchecked "Compatible Gradient". If this matters, the vector image contains transparency, gradients, pattern fills, a clipping mask. Reading up on the issue told me that EPS may have troubles with transparencies and gradients, but saving as Illustrator 10 is said to take care of this. Never had this happen to other vectors with the same settings and elements.
