If you can create SVG files then you can import those into Fusion.

Thank you Sander ,
I have this shot and I want to import it in Fusion , I save it as .SVG . but when i open it in Fusion the files not appears properly .

Is there any way to open the file with keeping the colors ?!
I think it's need a specific way to save the files , not just .SVG , is it ?

I don't use Illustrator, but when I export this image from Inkscape
Inkscape.jpg
This is how it looks in Inkscape

And then import into Fusion with the File-->Import-->SVG option I get
SVGFusion.jpg
This is how it looks in Fusion
SVGFusion.jpg (55.78 KiB) Viewed 2071 times

That looks pretty accurate to me. I don't know what's causing your problem.
Also: is it necessary to stay vector based or is it also okay to work with seperate raster images?

I prefer to work with vector based "ai" and No problem working with raster images.

Here is what i get when is save and Import the SVG :
Image
There is no color just shapes and It only appears when selected , and if i want to add color to every Nodes , I'm going to leave fusion OUT and stop learn it any more "There will be a lot of lost time"

I hope someone have adobe illustrator , can help .

Thank you ,

When saving as SVG in illustrator, make sure to select 'Styling: Inline Style'.
I just tried it:SVG with default settings, same result as you. With adjusted setting: seems perfect.

the number of nodes is normal, you get a shape for each shape in the SVG (and Background for the color)

SVG has many options and flavours, maybe not all are supported in the fusion import. this could be the reason you see a different result

Illustrator gives you a number of options when exporting to svg. Have you tried them all?
Do you have any idea about the specifics of the elements in your design that don't show up in Fusion? (It might even be something as simple as needing to first outline the strokes?)

Hey,

Excuse me but why SVG ? I mean, why not - in Illu - "Export for web" > PNG > PNG 24 with transparency ?
