Im creating my own custom illustrations in Adobe Illustrator.
When I save them as an SVG and put them into videoscribe, the line is drawn too thickly and therefore revealing some of the fill colour next to the line.
I have tried reducing the line thickness in Illustrator, expanding some of the lines and just having them revealed, and Ive also tried changing the default image quality when importing into videoscribe.
None of these things have solved the problem, see my image attached to see what is happening.
I have a deadline to work to so would really really appreciate a solution as soon as you are able.
There are some issues with
Adobe creative cloud "new" pencil tool that make SVGs work weird in
videoscribe so that may be a factor.
Also the typical arrangement is
1) filled paths on the bottom for color fills
2) stroked paths in the middle for the line art (or paintbrush lines which are fills)
3) transparent stroked paths on top to reveal the fills underneath
You seem to be using a different arrangement which has the stroked paths for the line art on the bottom and a copy of the line art converted to outlines on top with huge stroked paths instead of fills for your color fills in the middle. But if it's working the way you want it, then you probably don't need to change it.

Thank you so much for your reply!
Ive reopened and saved the file in an old version of Illustrator (CS5), and my file works as it should. So I think it might be the 'new' pencil tool in the creative cloud version thats the problem here...
Not sure how to fix that...
Hi Emma, Joe here.
I think the results you're seeing may have something to do with how VideoScribe works.
We have similar effects on some of our items where there are different coloured lines that cross each other.
This is because when an item is being drawn by VideoScribe it reveals how the final image will look on the canvas.
My suggestion would be to separate the different sections into individual images and layer them onto the canvas instead.
Thank you for getting back to me.
Sure, but the problem with that is that I then wouldn't be able to draw the line first and get it to colour in, if you see what I mean.
I think it is a bug with Creative Cloud, as when I re-saved my image using CS5 Illustrator, it worked fine.
Mike - I will! But perhaps Sparkol can solve the bug....
