EPS is an old format with support for full transparency (i.e the background can be tranparent), and also supports the use of clipping paths for transparency around a raster image, but it doesn't support semi-transparent fills, or gradients with semi-transparency. Doesn't really matter what software you use. It's not actually possible in a pure EPS format, ...

The other colors in the gradients are ...
