  1. Yes, I’ve tried that already. I ungrouped the American flag and my art work and tried to mask and the same this happens. Rasterized when I export.
  2. I don’t understand why it’s this hard to literally have an American flag melt into my design.. I did this before in the last with no problems. It makes no sense.
  3. I realized that after I sent it.. but the same thing happened where it exports and rasterizes... when I export my image without the American flag mask it exports as a pdf with no rasterization. But when I add the American flag mask, it exports as rasterized.. I don’t understand why. It makes no sense. Unless affinity makes it so I can’t put a vector American flag over my vector art and have it come out vectorized? Like is this possible? I know you can do this no problem in Adobe illustrator, can even do vector erase.. I don’t feel like spending 30$ a month for that tho lol...
  4. There’s no stroke on my image, this is why I’m getting aggravated. It should not be this hard
  5. I just sent that as an example because I cannot send the artwork I’m doing the masking with because of copyright and intellectual property. I need to make a vector flag, melt or mask into my vector art and have it export as a pdf with no rasterization to be printed. Everything is converted to curves everything is vectorized. If I was to export the flag by itself it is 100% vectorized. If I export my artwork it is 100% vectorized. As soon as I combine them with the mask to below method it exports rasterized. This is literally the most frustrating thing and makes zero sense to me. Does anyone know how I can get ahold of the technical support people at affinity and have them tell me what I’m doing wrong or how to do this right? I would appreciate it!
  6. This is what im talking about.. It makes zero sense American Flag Mask.pdf American Flag Mask.afdesign
  7. It still comes out rasterized.. am I going to have to make the image all over again to have it look the way I want it too? It shouldn’t be this hard to layer a vector art on top of one another vector art and have the top layer melt into the bottom one.. this is kinda ridiculous.
  8. It’s not vectorizing when exported with what you said... it looks like this
  9. So I only deal with vector art because I design t shirts and it needs to be vectorized. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.. I’m trying to get an American flag to completely cover or ‘mask’ a figure that’s my original artwork for a Fourth of July design... I’ve tried the “mask to below method” but when I export as a pdf it still comes out rasterized which I can’t have... does anyone know what I’m doing wrong or could help me/ explain to me how add these layers together and have it come out vectorized? Thank you all so much!
