Why can't I export a large .ai file to .png?


I am trying to export a large AI file to PNG in Illustrator (Per request) and have been unsuccessful. I believe it's because my file is too large. I'm hoping someone can shed some light on how I can export that large file to PNG?

A quick bypass would be to use inkscape instead. Download it from here: https://inkscape.org/en/

Inkscape can open large .ai files, and also can export them as .png
The only thing that you should do is:

  1. Open your file with inkscape

  2. Go to File > Export as PNG

  3. In the window that pops up, select Page

  4. Then in the same window choose where should the file be saved

  5. And hit export

That's it
