My name is Ismael from Portugal and I am a recent Blender user.
I’m developing a personal project and just started using Blender to help me with 2D animation.
I have been working with vectors for a couple of months (with Affinity Designer software) and I realized it is possible to import them into Blender if they are in .svg format. I have tried that in many different ways and it hasn’t been working for me. I import my files to Blender and they just don’t seem to appear. Maybe the fact that I don’t know much about Blender doesn’t help also.
On my web research I realized that there is an add-on that allows you to import files from Adobe Illustrator (.ai, .pdf) to Blender.
I’ve contacted the creator of this addon and he helped me with the steps to import vectorized images into Blender. It didn’t work.
When I try to import my vectorized artwork (which is divided in layers) into Blender, most of the layers don’t show up on screen. And I have tried importing it as SVG and also as a vector file. I even tried importing specific layers individually, tried to scale them but they just aren’t there, even when I move other layers position.
I really don’t know what else to do for I’m not an expert with these things and I really don’t have any experience with animation software. The only thing I would love to do was to be able to edit individually all the layers in my artwork with Blender so I could animate them.
Can anyone please help me with this?
I would appreciate it a lot.
