Live Trace - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Is live trace limited to 256 colours, like most of the other bitmap to vector conversion tools currently available? Does it create significantly less nodes/anchor points without blunting sharp edges?...

    I don't know, Philo, I haven't used it yet, but CreativePro.com is running a piece on it...in case you haven't seen it:

    Thank you, John. There is a wee bit of an important step under "hand tracing" at the end of this article that magically changes a mouldy looking posterized portrait into a pretty good vector image. I assume that a moderate skill in image interpretation and pen drawing isn't going to go away with live trace.

    Yes, it is.

    I'm using illustrator cs2 and the live trace works well. The only thing i can't seem to do is to save the image outline. With illustrator 10 you could save the file as an .ai file, export as a bitmap image and also the bitmap outline. Any help would be great. thanks
