im not sure what ur getting at, from the look of the comparisson shot u made it did a better job than live trace.

it also depends on the settings you give also.

I dono what setting you gave the image, but due to the gradient I would have given it a photographic type, and set the colours to many, rather than under 12.

a vector trace is only as good as the image, you used a pretty shit image.

gradients no doubt will always be a problem, it for both live trace and this. But for flat colour illustration, logo's type.. its awesome.

The main thing I like about it, the thing that shits me about live trace is it has trouble with intersecting corners. this is great with sharp corners.

Heres urs reworked :P

(i dono if its any different, I modified ur existing link.. it may be local to the hard drive.. do you see any change?)

I like it cause its open for anyone to use, it remembers ur jobs with no login, its pretty accurate, its a very easy step by step workflow and from usability point of view its brilliant.

And its free. :D

I couldnt see yours moo.

heres another one - random piccie i like from DA, good enough for a test:

http://vectormagic.stanford.edu/vctr/vctr_flex?p=v&k=pNpkVXq4Wj2phUoCdzgF9gKYvasqWgwi&v=1

Imported eps into illustrator to check the path, im impressed at how clean it is:

http://img179.imageshack.us/img179/4598/pathtestjx9.jpg

It has its flaws, and some other images I have tested it destroyed, it appears to need clean cut images, rasters that were originally vectors to work efficiently, and heavier compression tends to get nasty.

I agree moo, for people who don't have access to the more pro software this will be a lifesaver, but I think I'm going to stick to the hand made approach :P

Wow, that's a really really clean path O_o
I've been using livetrace so it's somewhat irrelevant but I can really appreciate how nice the paths are in the latter section of pictures ^_^

Something else I noticed.
The way it generates the shapes.

seems to be from the outside in.

do one.. ungroup it then move one of the shapes inside a larger shape.

it moves with the background shape still there intact.
so its doing the shapes in individual layers without destructing them.

as some times, deleting a shape inside a shape or moving it reveales a hole in the lower shape.

this does not do that.
