I don't know allegro but try exporting or saving as a collection gerber files - one per layer.

I've never been able to get gerbmagic to work correctly on eagle gerbers. It always gets at least one apperture wrong (like 10X too big). Pentalogic viewmate reads them correctly.

I see that .art is allergo's extension for gerbers. try using viewmate to read them. https://www.pentalogix.com/

I hope this helps

hi neena,
you have import the .art file you can either do it automatically or manually,
your problem might be resolved importing it manually by selecting the import artwork option from the import menu.
if there is still a problem try to set the same settings for both the tools i.e. the tool from which you are generating thge gerber and the tool in which you are viewwing the gebrer.
hope this will solve your problem.
