Re: [Swftools-common] SWFC Outline SVG code and unknown primitive error

Thanks, Chris,

now it compiles OK. OK? no! Compiles without error but the generated SWF 
file isn't that I want.

The problem is that my SVG contains upper and lower case data. Lower case 
data indicates relative position and upper case data denotes absolute 
positions, thus, the figure generates with case insensitive data is diferent 
than my original path.

OK, I will try to make an absolute positioning path outline command.

Do you now if there are planned to support SVG with case sensitive command 


Best regards.

'Unknown Primitive' means it can't make sense of your path data.

ttbomk, here's why..

Not only is there a lot more to path data than SWFtools can handle, it
is also quite likely that whatever SVG program you used didn't follow
the w3c standards.

SVGs are very sensitive to bad formatting, especially how you line up the
elements, where you put the CRs, etc.  Also, SWFTools doesn't appear to
understand lower case Path Data commands, so use Upper Case Only.

I've attached a revised version of your 'logo-180x180.sc' to this email.
Mainly so the formatting doesn't get destroyed.  Compile with swfc then
take a look and see if it is what you expected ( I'm logically guessing
here, ok? :o)  )

If you'd also care to gently fry you brain, here are two relevant links:
