How are you achieving this with full opacity?

In the example file that comes with videoscribe, when I export elements to an SVG and examine how the elements are drawn in, I notice that the opacity is set to 100%, but i can't see the stroke at all. I always have to reduce it to 0% for this effect to work. 


How are you achieving this with opacity on? And why can't I see the stroked line at all?


I've attached the svg I'm referring to.

Hi,
1) in illustrator, select just one of those transparent paths
2) in illustrator click window>appearance and view the properties of that path
3) expand the Stroke properties
4) it should say "opacity: 0%"

I don't know why the Transparency window shows 100% instead of 0% but there is probably some logical illustrator explanation.  For example, maybe its because the path fill is set to null with default opacity instead of 0% opacity.

Hope that helps,

or it might be clearer to say
layer opacity=100%
stroke opacity= 0%
fill opacity=100% (null color)

 

Interesting, thanks, Mike. I'm sure there's an explanation, but this is good enough for me. Thanks!
