I've tried importing images in several of the correct formats for 4.0 without success. I need to import some two-dimensional images from the internet or scanned images, assign points on the flat image, manipulate their z locations, create curves and then loft a surface over them to create 3D items.
Can't find information saying that this is possible but believe it must be. Early in the Level 1 Training Manual there was an image of a pear that was outlined and then made 3D. This seems similar to what I'm wanting to do. Can anybody give this fellow some directions and help?
