Although it's a conversation I've had with a number of people who use Draw... The brush strokes in Draw are like an Illustrator blob brush and it's currently not possible to get a simple/single path down the middle of the stroke. I know people do redraw strokes in Illustrator CC, but how to do that is quite beyond my Illustrator skill level.
Hope that helps in some way.
Yep. Sue is right.
Using Illustrator Draw give you paths like the blob brush. If you're drawing on the same layer, you'll wind up with shapes that are unique, but without the center path.
It doesn't appear that Adobe Draw currently records the finger/stylus path, so any shape you're creating in one movement appears as a single color. (While converting a few isolated strokes that aren't recursive might be easy, strokes that create irregular shapes are not)
OTOH, if you use something like Adobe Sketch, you can get the paths out, but in doing so, you may forfeit the brushes that you created in the application. I haven't sat down to figure out how to replicate those brushes in Illustrator or Photoshop(easier).
Here is an Adobe Sketch illustration, sent to Illustrator and the embarrassing squiggles I made to create it.
While you can appropriate the path data by converting it, you may want to keep a duplicate layer of your artwork first. The conversion process replaces the bitmap images with default brushstrokes.
You're great Ko.
just tried to replicate this process, and it appears that the file now being sent to Illustrator is a .psd file, and not the .sket file that you were working with.
Was there a particular method to output the data as a .sket file? Or has Adobe changed this process?
