Can I import bitmaps into Xara 3D?

Bitmap images (JPEG/GIF/BMP/PNG files) can only be imported into Xara3D for use as backgrounds, or as texture fills for 3D objects.

Bitmap or raster graphics consist of many colored pixels without any information to define the shapes, and so are not suitable for extruding into 3D.

If you have a bitmap shape that you wish to extrude you could create a shape by drawing around the outline in Webster (which is bundled with Xara3D 5 or later) or Xara Xtreme, creating something the same size and shape as the bitmap. Then copy and paste the object into Xara3D if you are using Xtreme (or save it out of Webster and import it into Xara3D if you are using Webster).
