Ungrouped all objects:
Thanks, this keeps the triangles as vectors.
What I found out is:
The single triangles have a fixed opacity set instead of using the
alpha channel of the gradient definition.
This is certainly a bug - probably when exporting the file to SVG.
If there is no other possibility to turn the .psd file in SVG (I used
an online converter, leading to a 300MB large file that failed to load
in Inkscape), the only way to solve this properly would be to get the
gradient definition for each triangle from CS5 and add them manually
to the Inkscape triangle gradients. Together with correcting the
opacity of the objects this would mean to do three corrections on 56
triangles - probably about half an hour of stupid work, but manageable.
Hopefully it won't need to come to this =)
I don't own a CS5 copy, so I can't do this.
Anybody able to help out (or do just a part of it?)
I've updated the download section of the Motif page
So the story seems to be this;
- Inkscape users aren't encountering any problem with the alpha in the
SVG file (as demonstrated by Hillar, Rob and Sveinn)
- Anyone using Illustrator can use the original AI file to retain alpha
- Anyone who can't get it to work in either can still use the PNG file
which is high-res enough (2500x2500pixels, 300dpi) for the majority of jobs.
So I have provided these three formats on the motif page in the "Final
motif" download section.
Sveinn, if I could get the ungrouped SVGs you created (but without a
black background) off you that would be great, or feel free to replace
the link on the wiki yourself if you have time.
We can keep looking into a one-size-fits-all format solution, but I
don't want to waste everyone's time trying to get the file right.
In its current incarnations, it is usable without defects (in at least 1
of the three formats listed above).
The whole point of making the motif was so we could start using it (like
Drew has started on another thread).
Sooooo let's get busy making Design material with them! =D
PS. I've written up some "guidelines" on the wiki page for the use of
the motif that I'll back up with example-images as I get time.
Let me know what you think ... Are they realistic? helpful? clear?
