I used Inkscape to create my svg. But my svg always starts drawing at the end point and then the beginning. How do I fix this?
I draw in the order that I want. I don't want the end point to show until it's time.
Thanks in advance.
As suggested in the thread at the link I provided, the simplest methods for correcting the intersection problem cause by CC are:1) use a version of illustrator older than CC (in which the "new" pen and pencil tools were not yet implemented)2) use inkscape (free at inkscape.org)3)
just open the current svg in inkscape or a version of illustrator older
than CC and re-save it to get rid of the problematic settings.4)
possibly find some combination of export settings in illustrator CC that
will disable the problematic "new" pen and pencil line styles which
don't work correctly in videoscribe.Attached is the house-3 svg opened and resaved in illustrator CS4 (fixed).-Mike (videoscribe user)
Oh yeah! you did write Inkscape... I'm sorry. sometimes I get so focused
on the attachment that I only skim the problem description.I don't think you need to buy illustrator.I think you either need to 1) change your export settings or possibly 2) try an older version of inkscape. (If you are using the newest version from january2015, it may work like illustrator cc.)version .91 and version .48.5 are currently available for download: https://inkscape.org/en/download/
I don't have inkscape installed so I can't offer more specific advice but maybe support or another user will jump in and comment.-Mike (videoscribe user)
I have created an SVG using Inkscape with the Bezier curve tool. I used a canvas of the default size and the image size is 435 by 547. The stroke width is set to 20 px and it was saved as an Inkscape SVG. I am using the latest version of Inkscape.
When I import this image into VideoScribe it draws normally in the same order that the lines were created and without revealing extra parts of the line.
I have attached the image here. Please let me know if this is the same or different to how you are creating the image.
The image I created was done on a blank canvas. I did not use an image as a template. I created the lines first with a stroke width of 1 px, using the Bezier tool, then selected the whole thing and increased the stroke width to 20. The resulting image is around 530 x 440 px and the canvas has dimensions of 744 x 1052 px (A4). I then saved it as a plain SVG and imported into VideoScribe.
Please see the attached video.
Looking at the code of the most recent SVGs from Jaye (house99q.svg) and Matthew (housey.svg), I see that Jaye is using inkscape version .91 and Matthew is using version 48.4As
I suggested earlier, the newest version of inkscape may be emulating
the newest version of adobe illustrator which creates SVGs with the
exact same symptom that Jaye is getting.-Mike (videoscribe user)
