Hi – I’m a beginner with Blender…and excited by it.
As part of an art project, I am trying to import an irregularly shaped graphic 2D image (with a transparent background) into Blender. The two methods tried so far are:-
a) Add, Mesh, Images as Planes. This retains the image colours but gives the whole rectangular frame (including the ‘transparent’ parts).
b) Vectorise the image (using Inkscape), save it in SVG format, then use File Import (as SVG). This generates 10 ‘curves’ and keeps the colour of the original graphic. When I select all the parts then try to join them, most vanish. I get 2 of the small coloured shapes and the outline.
Any other ideas?
