Notice that i have not made significant work with svg...
just with Adobe Ilustrator files (vector graphics only
for import and export) and PDF files (vector graphics only
for export only). Code for svg export that i used in one
stack is an adaptation of Richard Gasking's works from
Richmond, you should follow Malte's recommendation to
use Ian McPhail's stack: SVGL.
This stack (SVGL) implement correctly most
SVG Transformations: scale, translation and rotate.
Other features that i want to see in this stack:
1) Skew and Matrix Transformations (that
allows all transformations in a single operation).
2) Support for gradients and transparency
in fills and strokes.
3) Import Circles and Rounded Rectangles as
Rev Circles and Rounded Rectangles (actual version
of SVGL import both kind of graphics as Polylines)
Recently, i post a message announcing a new version
of Eps Import. Read this message again:
Download the stack "Eps Import V05B" from:
or visit my webpage:
in this page look for the stack named:
Notice that this website named 000space does not
allow hotlinking so, if you click in this link to
download the file, you will be redirected to
an error page:
New in this version: Basic functionality to import ilustrator blends
as gradients. Still pending to create code for some important blend
Your ilustrator gradients should have a name compatible
with the Runrev convention for variable names.
That is, your gradients names in ilustrator should not have any
"ilegal" characters like commas, ampersand (&), etc, etc.
Ilustrator files exported from Xara, (the tool that i use) does not
have this problem, because gradients are named like "Radial gradient 05"
and "Lineal gradient 12".
Hopefully, Runrev will integrate soon this functionality of importing blends
to their SVGL importer stack. In fact, svg graphics are better than
graphics because they share many important features with vector graphics
from this platform, like defined geometric shapes (vital to import round
and circles), alpha properties for each color inside a fill or stroke and
applied to stroke lines.
Alert me in this mail list about any problems with the download links
Happy and fruitful 2010 for everyone!
