Fresco imports vector layers as merged pixel background image?

I'm having a frustrating issue: I create layered vector illustrations in fresco and send them to desktop illustrator for a few last tweaks. Ever since updating Illustrator to 2022, Fresco chooses one of my vector groups to export as vectors, and all other layers are merged together as one locked pixel background image. What's the deal? I've never had issues getting all of my layers imported before.

 

I have seen other posts saying the "simplify" experimental feature might be turned on. That's not the case for me. I see that setting, but I can't tick it on or off.

 

Fresco: 3.0.1

Illustrator: 26.0

Exporting to illustrator > desktop. Desktop is an iMac running Big Sur 11.6

 

In this case, each circle is a layer group. I'm only getting one circle as a vector layer. The rest are grouped together and pixels. Screenshots below from iPad and desktop Illustrator.

Just saw another post about groups with masks being converted to pixels. That's probably my issue! Would love if this "feature" was resolved and illustrator could see the layers like Fresco does!

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience. I would request you to please share a few more details like:

  • Is the issue related to a specific document?
  • Could you please share the download link of this Fresco document here or via DM with us? We will take a look at it.
  • What happens when you export this Fresco document as a PDF and then open the PDF in Illustrator?
  • What kind of mask was it? Was it a clipping mask or mask with the Selection tool?
  • Was this working earlier, and is it not working now?

Note: We have added support for opening Fresco vector layers with raster masks and clipping masks as native layers in AI 2022 v26.0.1.

 

We are here to help. We just need more information.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Anshul Saini

I have this issue too and its really frustrating! Spent mny days illustrating in fresco in vectors and now I can't import to illustrator. Every attempt converts the entire document to a raster image. Whats changed? I have been working like this for months and suddenly the transition from fresco to illustrator seems impossible?
