vector import grayed out?

Post by formerPixel » Mon Aug 26, 2019 11:03 am


I am absolutely new to the program and I already got stuck at the import of vector graphics.
In the menu Import->Vector File-> everything is grayed out ?

I can import by general import but the graphic is messed (this probably can be fixed by changing some things in the drawing)
yes I already read that vector import isn´t really good but what is the point of the extra option "Vector File" ?

SVG import is the best choice. Open in illustrator and save as SVG 1.0 with presentation attributes then import to Moho. This should work quite well, but sometimes you need to adjust a few things.
Note that some features like gradients and text will not work, clipping mask are also problematic...

this is like, the worst possible information to me. EVERYTHING my main clients want animated is made in Illustrator with Gradients.
Anyone got any tips to get files from Illustrator into MOHO?

I "think" saving .ai as a v8 or earlier should work. I think because it was already discussed but I can`t find the topic.
