The main menu > Import Vector File function automatically opens the vector graphic file and converts it to the embroidery design. Its purpose is to avoid having to redraw a design (logo or clipart) in Studio if it is already available in a vector file. This function is only available if the user has installed the Font Engine plug-in.
Many graphic programs generate vector file formats, and the majority of them can export vector graphics to SVG, WMF, or EMF files. SVG and EMF are more advanced than WMF and can store color palettes as well as curve objects. It is recommended to convert graphics to SVG format directly from their native vector format (Corel Draw CDR, Adobe Illustrator AI, and so on).
If you are willing to do withdigitizing embroidery you also need a vector file for converting that into DST format.
Conversion to WMF (older format) and then to SVG (new format) may result in graphic degradation.
Objects can be included in SVG and EMF files (raster bitmap, fonts, shapes, curves, polygons, etc.). Studio, on the other hand, can only import curves; all other objects are ignored. Please convert all objects, such as fonts and shapes, to curves before attempting to import the SVG file into Studio for the best results.
If the file contains a bitmap image, Studio ignores it. It does not auto digitize the picture. Only vector (curve) objects can be converted into embroidery objects.
