I started my free trial and I need to create my own images for a project.
In Photoshop CC on my iMac I made some simple drawings in layers and exported them as SVG files. When I imported them to Videoscribe, they were completely drawn and would not play in sequence. I tried saving one as a PNG and it imported and worked. But the sequence is not consecutive. The hand jumps around when creating the drawing. It is usable and looks great, but I don't understand what I might be doing wrong.
I want to create and submit hand drawn corporate leadership graphics for sale on Videoscribe. I was told they need to be SVG files. But PNG files seem to work. Please advise.
I only know how to draw the image in Photoshop. I saved the drawing in small increments in about 30 layers. When I exported as a SVG, Videoscribe imported as one finished drawing. When I exported the same Photoshop drawing as a PNG, Videoscribe imported it beautifully and played it in increments but not in perfect order. Am I exporting it wrong?
I am using the trial version. Could that be why Videoscribe won't import the SVG file correctly?
Mike, I am only trying to do what I am able to do. I use Photoshop. I don't want to learn a new program just to make drawings as SVGs. Photoshop CC has the option to save a series of layers as an SVG file. I tried importing them a number of times into video scribe and they don't play as a sequence. I tried saving a series of layers as a PNG file and it imported perfectly. The only thing I noticed is that the playback is not in sequence, but it still looks good. I am used to drawing in Photoshop, and I plan to do this a lot. I only had the trial of video scribe a couple of days, so this is all new to me. How would I attach the SVG file for you to see?
Mike, attached is the first SVG file I made.
Mike, I also want to use narration that someone will dictate into their iPhone. Any suggestions on the best or easiest way to get their voice from their iPhone videos to the video scribe scribes?
When I open your SVG it appears to have a lot of image layers and compound path layers but no visible art. There is not enough usable information there for me to fix or diagnose.
The recommended, tested and documented methods for making SVGs that will work well in Videoscribe have already been provided. While I understand that you want to use a different program, I don't have photoshop CC and I don't know of a way to use Photoshop to make an SVG that will work well in videoscribe. Maybe someone else has done it and can provide the specific documentation explaining how to make it work. I suspect it would involve using only the Pen tool which would probably be very similar to using the pen tool in inkscape or illustrator.
While I don't have an iphone, a google search brought up this result which looks promising:

Mike, I just purchased IllustratorCC ( might as well do it right ). I just tried a simple drawing and it almost worked correctly.
The only glitch was that the drawing appeared as empty shapes that only filled in at the end. There must be some setting to tell Illustrator to fill in the lines as they are drawn. There were a lot of choices when I told it to save as an SVG. I didn't change any of them. I attached a photo of the setting choices.
