Owenr- yes. That is what I did. I was having troubles exporting with SVG and EPS formats. I needed to know that I can export this file without rasterizing issues as I am designing this to be printed as a large scale mural. The “vector” brushes do not export as vector . They raterize upon export. Also anything transparent rasterizes when exporting via EPS. SVG can not export CMYK colors so that’s out. I ended up switching to RGB colors just to get an export that didn’t raterize parts of the design. I’m sure I’m doing this all wrong. What I’m confused on is if this is a vector program with vector brushes why do they rasterize upon export? Seems like it shouldn’t be called a vector brush then.
As for having too many nodes, since the brushes don’t actually make a clean, crisp , pointed line at the end , and Affinity doesn’t offer an eraser or a brush that makes crisp clean pointed lines like say the technical pen in procreate , I have to use more lines to cut the line back to create the crisp line I’m looking for. Also if I fill the shapes with the fill tool upon export the color is lost when I go to open it in other programs to print. I understand vector is different than normal drawing programs such as procreate but affinity works different from other vector programs I’ve used. I’m sure I just need to learn more but it’s hard to learn when no one I know has even heard of affinity designer. So when I explain what’s going on they just look at me like a deer in headlights and tell me to get Illustrator.
