Illsutrator Import Resolution

How can I make Maya import my illustrator objects at a higher resolution? Currently I have some text that needs to be made in 3D, but letters that have curves have like 4 spans for a full 180 degree curve and it looks very low poly.

Select your imported text/object in Maya and hit "3." That will smooth the lines.

if you import as a curve, you can use bevel plus to fine tune the conversion... may want to reset settings on the tool and/or check polygon count in output options.

it's best to let Illustrator add more resolution to your paths by adding points. Having it interpolated on the Maya side could change the path. In Illustrator, select Object/Path/Add Anchor Points. The more, the merrier.

Yeah this couldn't be any truer. I have spent 3 days trying to get good imported curves. lots of trial and error but wish I'd read this sooner!
