Is Adobe Fresco compatible with/ supports DWG and PDF?

I create line drawings in AutoCAD which are dwg files and also save and print them out as pdf's. Can I use Adobe Fresco with either types of these files to watercolor over for a more pleasant presentation?

Fresco currently can't place a PDF on a layer. You'd have to convert the PDF to a pixel image like TIFF or JPG to be able to paint over it. 

In the app settings, under "help", you can request this as a feature.

Thank you for your response, however this conversion will create a slightly less clear image to work with...I might as well use Photoshop to create my color images. I was so hoping Fresco would work since it seems much simpler a process.
