I have been making my first very simple animation with typography in Adobe Edge Previev CS 6.1. Everything OK but... I start with illustrator files with SVG. When placed in InDesign (as *.oam file), uploaded (PDF format) with DPS and shown in Adobe Conten Viewer, it is rasterized.
I know that Overlays are in general rasterized but I had the (seemingly wrong?) idea that Edge animations were treated in a different way and that they were not always rasterized.
So, the question is: Is there anyway I could place an animation in DPS so that is not rasterized. I mean: Placed PDFs retain in DPS their vector quailities and they look gorgeous at any size. Is that not possible yet with animations? (Will it ever be in a near future?).
Thanks a lot

PS. I would like to thank you all in this forum. This place and its participants is a priceless resource to learn DPS.
This is a bug in Edge. This post in the Edge forums goes over it. http://forums.adobe.com/message/4287158
here is a quote from adobe.
Sorry about all the issues with SVG. This is a bug we're working on a fix for, thanks for bringing it up. It is indeed a huge pain since the whole point of SVG is to scale!
So... If that bug you / the post talk about wasn't there... Should we expect the Edge animation to respect the vectorial character of the typography (outlines created in Illustrator an exported as SVG 1.1 to Edge)?
Anyway, from 26th march -2012 up to now could seem the heck of a time to solve such a relevant bug to folks with less patience than us, couldn't it?
I agree. That is a long time for a bug to be around. But I have the same results when I export SVG to Edge it becomes rasterized and looks bad. I am sure they are working on it but it is basicly beta software so I can see how it can be put off for other things.
One option that I use sometimes is to convert the SVG to a PNG and rasterize it myself so at lest I can control how rasterized it gets.
