3d EPS export files huge on Mac OS X, not so much on PCs
I generated a very simple Plot3D plot on my Mac (OS X v 6.4, Mathematica 8.0) and right-click Save As... EPS. The resulting file was 1.3MB (with more complex plots, I've seen plot file sizes of around 200MB!). When the same plot is processed on a PC running some Windows OS, the result is about 400KB. Unfortunately I am required to produce EPS files rather than JPGs directly even though LaTeX promptly converts them to JPGs. A similar (identical?) problem was reported four years ago on this newsgroup with an older version of Mathematica - except then the problem was with PC export: http://groups.google.com/group/comp.soft-sys.math.mathematica/browse_thread/thread/a669fd00915cbbf5/8d8d847ffca75f6d?lnk=gst&q=plot3d+huge#8d8d847ffca75f6d Has anyone else seen this issue or have any suggestions? Thanks.
