I'm looking to take a very simple black and white line drawing created in PSD and convert it into a SVG for use in Explaindio, a simple white board animation software. I can convert the picture to SVG in PS but when I import it to Explaindio, it does not actually draw the picture--it just appears. I believe I had found a tutorial on youtube several months ago that walked me through several steps to save the drawing in Photoshop in such a way that the animation software would draw out the picture but cannot find it again. I do believe this is possible to do in Illustrator but I am less familiar with that software. Any help/suggestions quite welcome. I am very much a novice in this area so not fully understanding what the difference is in just saving something as an SVG and saving it SVG so it has enough information to "draw" the image--I am just aware that something more needs to happen to the images than I am doing.
Photoshop SVG is not what it should be. If you want to create a proper SVG file you would need to use AI. There is a third party Plug-in the supports many SVG layers in Photoshop as vectors. SVG LAYERS for Photoshop | Open SVG files as Editable Vector Layers
Full SVG support in Photoshop as far as I know does not exist. It best to just use Photoshop Place to add smart object layers that contain SVG file objects. These are special vector smart objects....
You will not find SVG in this link Supported file formats in Photoshop
In this link you will some some notes about SVG Save files in graphics formats in Photoshop However SVG Files opened in Photoshop are not opened as vector layers.
