Need SVG Export functionality for combination Freestyle and solid render
Hi fellow Blender artists. Jake here. I recently released an animated infographic (http://jacoboneal.com/car-engine/) that uses Blender heavily for visualizations. I’d like to release this type of project in animated SVG format instead of the antiquated, very limiting animated GIF format.
The illustrations need to be rendered in a combination of Freestyle and solid, like what you see in that infographic.
I am well aware of SVG Writer by Tamito Kajiyama (http://www.geocities.jp/blenderyard/freestyle/svgwriter_b26/README.html). Exporting as Bezier curves instead of true 3D is probably ideal…unless 3D would be a smaller file size. The problem is that SVG Writer is a bit over my head. Instead of diving into code, I’d like the SVG exporter to simply render the scene exactly as it is from the settings I’ve already chosen.
So, am I in way over my head here? Or can any Blender programmers help me out? I’ve posted this in the paid section because I intend to shell out some bucks if SVG export directly from Freestyle can become a reality for me.
