You can save the .cdr directly in .ai format (in corel X4 this option is kind of ok). You can try to export an .eps file or .pdf without quality lost. But sometime for transparency and gradient is not working. For some gradients or transparent object i have chosen to replace with a color, and after import remake gradient in illustrator. But for a complex image it could be a nightmare.

Rreplied to this kind of thread before as well. I think you can try using just the stroke fill and setting color fill to none. Then drag and drop your content in AI document or just save as .ai

I don’t think there’s any option which can let you export the file from corel draw to illustrator with exact gradient info. You’ll have to work with gradients in illustrator. Though there might be a solution which I’m not aware of.

I have had mixed success moving things from one to the other. I’ve found sometimes that combining curves and such (which may have been individual letters with a gradient, for example) can actually help hold the gradient when it’s moved into the other program.

For the most part though, I’ve found that it’s better to cut your losses and just re-create the gradients after you’ve moved everything.
