Grease Pencil new Import/Export Module with SVG and PDF Support


Grease Pencil developer Antonio Vazquez has just committed the GP team's latest project: The new import/export module, which allows for PNG and SVG export, and SVG imports.

These very useful additions come right on time to make the most out of the newly added LineArt modifier, where all the newly born LineArt/GP creations can now be exported in SVG and PDF.

Imported SVG files have their colors automatically converted to Vertex Colors.

    This would be impossible without Falk David perimeter functions, the testing done by Matias Mendiola and Daniel Martinez, the code review done by Hans Goudey and the library setup done by platform team. This is a team work, not only me.

  2. Wow. This is beyond amazing! Is there a way to export whole animations to svgs as well(if there is, the usability of this for creating web animations would be off the charts)?

      SVG only export one frame, but you can export in PDF that allows several pages and convert this PDF to SVG easily.
