Colored objects in raster mode

Postby scott216 » Tue Dec 10, 2013 2:29 pm

Using Retina Engrave software I created 7 circles, each one a different color. Then I rendered it. In the vector tab they showed up as different colors, but in the Raster tab they are all black. Is that they way it should work? I'm trying to do a test in raster mode where each color would be assigned a different speed.

Raster mode only does one "channel". You can't do multiple colors there :(

You cannot do different power/speed settings in raster mode based on colors. Only vector. You can eliminate parts of the differently colored circles using the Threshold slider. By careful use of that, you can run multiple raster passes.

Raster mode will always be just black or white. Either the laser fires or it doesnt. You cant assign colors in raster mode.
