IPad Only: Importing SVG Files doesn’t work!

PostFri Dec 08, 2023 3:12 pm

Does the iPad version of DR import SVG files ?

If so, how ?

I ask because apparently DR is supposed to support SVG files, if that’s true when I go to select an SVG file created with Affinity Photo or Designer on my iPad and try to import the file…nothing happens. DR sees the file but when I try to import it, nothing happens. I’ve tried multiple applications at this point thinking that it was the app generating an svg file that wasn’t what DR needed. It’s not the file, it’s DR.

Is this a bug ? Is it not supported ? What’s the dealio ?

Can you provide a link to a sample file?

Resolve does not see it. And it's not in the Supported Codecs list.

On an Intel Mac, it only seems to open in a web browser.

Why do you think "apparently DR is supposed to support SVG files"?

Because according to multiple videos and the ss below DR does support SVG files. What you’re seeing in the attachment is from a video, where I grabbed the frame showing that SVG is an option to import from Fusion (on the desktop). I tried to import from the fusion page (on the ipad), or any other page, and I get the same result. Nothing imports.

Fair.

It does open in stand alone Fusion. Apparently the Fusion in Resolve lacks SVG capability.

That SS is from Fusion in Resolve, not the standalone version. So I don’t know what to tell you aside from what I already have. For some reason it doesn’t want to open in Fusion on the iPad, and yet it opens in DR Fusion on the desktop. There are multiple videos that show this happening >

After Fusion dev team feedback, I revisited this. My bad. Using the Fusion page Fusion Import - SVG menu to load the SVG file, it is working for me on Windows, and on Intel and Apple Silicon Macs.

What happens for you when you use the Fusion Import - SVG menu with the blue cog file?

But the bottom line in regards to iPad is that since this is a Fusion page Fusion Import menu function, and you don't have Fusion page access on iPad, this isn't going to be an option on iPad.

IOW: you can't expect that everything works if you can get there only with a hack ;-)
