Can Harmony Import and work with .svg files?

I want to experiment with cut-out animation using puppets made in Inkscape, but I want to make sure it’s actually possible before I pay for a subscription, since I am on a very tight budget.

(Also, if the answer is no, does it work with any of the other vector filetypes Inkscape can export to? PDF is the only other one I can think of that might work.)

Oh, that’s unfortunate. Thanks anyway!

EDIT: I heard a rumor that you can rename a pdf file to an ai file without breaking it. Does anyone know if this is true?

Harmony works with FLA, SWF, AI, JPEG, BMP, PNG, TGA, PSD, TIFF, SGI, TVG, OMF, PAL, PDF, SCAN, OSB files and QuickTime videos.

only illustrator file and swf can import to harmony.

Does anyone know if it is possible to export your vector drawings/layers in a vector format? I have been experimenting with OpenToonz, and it exports vector frames and ranges as numbered SVG files, which is quite handy for work in other applications.

Does a similar function exist in Harmony to export the vector layers in a vector format, preferably as numbered frames?

Looks like there is still only a roundabout way to export vector using SWF which you could convert to other formats in Flash if you had it available.

Sadly exporting out to swf breaks cutters/autopatches/etc.

That is too bad. I tried the SWF method, and it works up to a point. I noticed only the outline is preserved: in OpenToonz it is possible to export the center-line, which does not maintain the variable thickness of the strokes, but does make it possible to apply new stroke effects in other software and work with the strokes as if drawn in the external app.

SVG is widely supported nowadays. Hopefully support for this format and better vector export options will become available in a future update.
