    "A Timesaving Unique Feature --- Real-Time Preview"

    February 13, 2008   |   By Kutee

    Version: MagicTracer [raster to vector converter] 2.0.006

    Pros

    The real-time preview feature is really a timesaver while processing the vector conversion. You don't have to wait until the whole process complete to change the settings to get the better tracing results. Plus the program is so powerful and only cost $60. I recommend downloading the latest version from the MagicTracer website.

    "Easy and Powerful"

    February 09, 2008   |   By QoSo

    Version: MagicTracer [raster to vector converter] 2.0.006

    Pros

    Many commands that only available in a much more expansive program can all be found in this low cost program. This is a very powerful program indeed.

    "Great Raster to Vector conversion with more than expected flexibility"

    August 08, 2007   |   By Iamkellbert

    Version: MagicTracer [raster to vector converter] 2.0.006

    Pros

    Interface is intuitive and easy to play with. Good undo fuctionality makes a "try-it-and-see-what-happens" approach work while learning the ins/outs of translation. Love the realtime preview option and all of the raster AND vector editing features. I was able to convert an awful multi-color, noisy raster image with multiple profiles into a fairly clean DXF file for use in our CAD system. It took some tweaking of the image in raster to maximize the cleanliness and quality of the final DXF file - but I had a usable output in a few tries/minutes. Further familiarity on my part would most likely improve the results of the curve interpolation and line corrections. Since I didn't bother with the manual or help, I suspect I may not have had the optimal settings...But I do think that for what it does, the price is most definitely reasonable and certainly feel the publisher was very fair in allowing 20 fully feature-enabled uses of the trial. Now I just need to convince the boss to pay for it...

    Cons

    Not owning a licensced copy; I'd buy it myself if I had the cash.

    "An Excellent Auto-Tracing Tool for Graphics Designers"

    March 24, 2006   |   By TheNeko

    Version: MagicTracer 1

    Pros

    1. Produce good results in just a few easy steps.

    2. Overlap display mode is great for correcting the tracing results.

    3. Project file keeps the settings; great for future modification.

    4. Being able to convert the vector lines to hatch fill is a very useful command for me to bring the DXF output over to Illustrator.

    5. Image editing tools are useful not just for vector conversion purpose.

    "A VERY NICE PIECE OF SOFTWARE"

    November 23, 2005   |   By Rober Smith

    Version: MagicTracer 1

    Pros

    I HAVE BEEN USING THIS PROGRAM FOR A LITTLE OVER TWO WEEKS. IT IS SO USEFUL FOR MY WORK AND I THINK I WILL KEEP USING IT UNTIL 35 USES RUNS OUT. THEN I WILL BUY A NON-RESTRICTED COPY. I CERTAINLY HOPE MAGICTRACER'S PROGRAMMING TEAM WOULD KEEP UP THEIR GOOD WORK IN THE FUTURE VERSIONS.

    BY THE WAY, I ALSO FOUND OUT THAT ELGORITHMS.COM IS THE MAKER OF MAGICTRACER AND YOU CAN DOWNLOAD OTHER USEFUL FREE PROGRAMS THERE AT ELGORITHMS.COM. I DOWNLOADED AN ENCRYPTION PROGRAM, CHAOS MASH, THERE. IT IS FREE BUT REALLY EASY TO USE AND VERY FAST AND POWERFUL.
