Converting bit-maps into vector images
Tracer Professional is a bit-map tracer for RISC OS that will produce
high quality vector images (Draw) from bit-maps (Sprite). Any black
and white sprite can be used, e.g. a scanned image.Tracer Professional
will convert it into an editable Draw file within seconds.
Tracer Professional was originally created on RISC OS 2, but has now
been converted to 32-bit so that it will run on the latest X-Scale
powered IYONIX pc.
Tracer Professional contains a number of settings that can be used
to fine-tune the process of converting a bit-map into a vector,
however, in most cases the basic settings will be sufficient for
producing hight quality results. Applications range from scanning
and converting a business logo, to creating your own high-quality
In order to achieve high quality draw files within just a few seconds,
Tracer Professional uses some highly optimised algorithms, created
and fine-tuned by the original author Ferdinand Oeinck. As a result,
Tracer Professional produces draw files that will generally require
little correction, if any. In case you need to edit the result,
you can use the build-in path editor which is basically a copy of !Draw.
A clever colouring scheme allows you to see the original bit-map
image through the converted draw file. Different colours are used
to show overlap or underlap and can be seen in the rightmost image.
In edit mode the toolbar gives access to a range of draw tools,
allowing new points to be added, lines to converted to curves and
vice versa, force smooth corners, etc.
Version 2.00 of Tracer Professional comes with a completely redesigned
user interface and has been made 32-bit compatible at the same time.
Once started, the program shows an empty sheet of paper in a window.
At the top of the window is the toolbar that gives access to all
functions and settings.
