Imported SVG has loads of whitespace around it

  • I have imported and SVG (created from and Adobe Illustrator file).

    When imported into Video Scribe the image is tiny and surrounded by loads of whitespace.

    When animated/drawn, the hand circles the image many times after completing the image.

  • Hi,
    I believe that clipping paths in your SVG are causing that problem. you can probably just delete them all and save the svg with a new name.

    (Be aware that once you remove the clipping paths, videoscribe will import the logo at a pretty huge size due to the way videoscribe handles short wide images.)

    For best results and fewest problems in videoscribe, I would recommend making your svgs using only regular paths that are stroked and/or filled.

    -no masks
    -no clipping paths
    -no embedded images or fonts
    -no glows, blurs or other filters

    (Also, groups nested inside of other groups may sometimes affect the drawing order in unwanted ways.)
