Hi Pete,

I've tried several times to get C3D PS to accept a file saved as a WMF in PI, however it seems that either C3D PS is seeing that PI does not use or save the WMF as closed paths, or PI actually can not save WMF closed paths. EMF is generally a better choice to use, however PI is not able to save to that format.

My suggestion would be to save your image as a jpeg or bitmap (bmp) and then use C3D PS import graphics and convert to vector to get your images into C3D PS. Here's a Shortie tutorial that may help on how to do this with C3D PS..
