Lines of SVGs thicken when drawn

Last updated 2019-07-28 15:45:17 +0100

When VideoScribe has finished drawing an image the lines of the image can thicken and get darker. If you are creating your own SVG images, this article will give you tips on how to reduce this. 

It may not be possible to completely eliminate the thickening of SVG lines when they have been drawn in VideoScribe but we have found that these tips can help to reduce the effects of this considerably in most cases.

To help reduce the thickening of the lines of an image after it has been drawn you should follow these instructions when creating your SVG.

1) Make the art-board size 1000 x 1000 pixels

2) Make the width of your strokes 4 pixels wide

3) Make sure you use the below save settings if you are using Adobe Illustrator

4) If using Inkscape, make sure that the units of measurement are set to pixels within the document properties (A & B). Also make sure that the ‘Scale’ is set to 1 (C).

If you have followed the advice in this article and are still having the same issue, please either post your SVG onto the community forum post Making SVG Images Draw Well or attach the image to a support ticket and the Sparkol support team will take a look.
