Sounds to me that the lines you have created in Inkscape have the paths of the SVG around the outline of your strokes rather than through the middle. If you open inkscape and draw a line with the pen or pencil you will notice the path runs through the middle of the line rather than round the edge.
You may find our Create your own images page useful and also this YouTube video which one of our customers has created to walk you through image creation. One of our regular customers also has a forum post on tips and settings needed with SVGs to make them draw well in the application.
If you can't find the answer there then post the SVG file and we can take a look
Denise, VideoScribe uses the vector path to draw your image so if you use a technique that puts that path around the edge of the line rather than through the middle then you are going to get that effect when you import it.
By technique I mean auto-trace functions, the type of vector lines these generally produce will cause the effect you are experiencing in VideoScribe. VideoScribe uses the vector path to draw your image so if your SVG has a vector path around the edge of your strokes your image will be drawn in that way.

When tracing a simple black line drawing in Inkscape (trace bitmap > export as optimized vector), the drawing action in videoscribe first outlines the lines, then fills them in.
Am I missing something in the trace bitmap setting, or the export/save as settings?
I want videosribe to draw the completed lines in one pass, or one stroke, and not outline the lines and then come back to fill them in.
I'm attaching an example of the outlined lines as they're drawn in videoscribe.
