Default Embird, clip art, auto help?

My wife and I are trying to learn how to digitize simple clip art files..specifically Pokemon for our own use with the children. I'm using Embird 8 with the digitizing plugin and the sfumato plugin. However, I am totally lost. Is there any simple way to automatically digitize something that is relatively simple, like clip art? Or is this going to be a very, very difficult job to do? Thanks.

Is it self-explanatory on corel drawings? I have a friend who has x4 and would be willing to let me come over and use it. Is there a tutorial you could point me to?

Is there any way to make the embroidery not look like a cross stitch pattern in x4? I went over and tried fiddling with it and it makes it look like a cross stitch pattern. Thanks.

Is it pretty easy to change a gif file to a vector image in coreldraw? I could get a copy of coreldraw and do that if I need to. Does the autotrace function do a good job?

yes and no, you have to 'trace' the image and re-create it as a vector file. I had to do that with the madagascar Penguins a couple months ago to design a screen for a shirt.
I just depends on how you are working with Corel, I had not worked with it until last June and now I love it and would be lost without it. Depending on how complex your image is, you could even try digitizing it yourself. This comes from someone who is learning as I go ans has HAD to do all my own digitizing or send it out. As I have a very basic digitizing program (looking at upgrading soon) Good luck to you!!

Usually its easier to use a gif or any other bitmap as a template and redraw the image. The problem with autotrace functions is they create too many nodes. Then you have to spend lots of time deleting nodes before you can use the image. A cartoon image should be easy to draw.
