Exporting SVG with transparency

Recommended Posts

I'm having a pretty major problem with the svg exporting features in affinity.


When I set up a simple scene with two objects, each with their own drop shadow, the drop shadows are not rendered transparently,

This is causing heaps of grief, because when I move the objects around, the shadows are just blocky images that look really bad, as shown:


Is there some way to force afinity to render the image with a transparent background?

This is really bad when I try to move the objects around on the web with javascript.


+1 For svg filters. It would honestly make 90% of these problems go away.
