This question already has an answer here:

It does not seem to be a common issue so I must be doing something wrong..

I am using Blender for converting drawings made in Illustrator into meshes in order to import them as .fbx into Unreal engine.

The operation runs smooth.

Though, I noticed something strange on the drawings, that the strokes (their outlines) disappear when I import the SVG into Blender. Only filling colors stays. SVGs seems to be properly exported and show up well if I open them in a browser.

Does anyone has a clue on what I might be doing wrong? O.O

  • $\begingroup$ I don't think the svg importer supports anything other than the shape, which, once imported you can choose to fill as a 2D curve or do something else with the outline. $\endgroup$ – cegaton May 31 '18 at 18:31
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you cegaton, you confirm what I was suspecting. :/ It will be a bit of a hassle to work it out this way.. I figured I could simply use a high resolution .png mounted on a sprite in Unreal for achieving the effect I was looking for.. much simpler and effective! thank you for your answer! $\endgroup$ – Bertrand May 31 '18 at 19:34
