I'd like to know why Fresco seems to pick some layers in what's supposed to be a vector file and export them as pixels when opened in illustrator? I've tried exporting directly into illustrator, as a PDF and also tried opening the files directly into photoshop through creative cloud.
All the options give me the same results. Some vectors, some pixels and I'd like to know why and how to resolve this issue.
Fresco was initially a painting app. Connected most closely to Photoshop.
Additional features including Vector have been added but I think the app is still most closely connected to Photoshop.
If you want a true Vector app on the iPad look into Illustrator on iPad.
Thanks @Sjaani !
Before Illustrator existed, this was the only vector app in existence I believe. I am now switching to illustrator but I am running into this issue when trying to migrate my Fresco files.
I'm having the same problem. Only using the vector brush. Then when I "send to illustrator", it comes in as pixels. In other words does not at all work as they say in their guide here: https://helpx.adobe.com/ca/fresco/using/fresco-and-illustrator.html
If you are creating masks on your vector layers, they get converted to pixels on import to Illustrator. Hopefully, this will be improved in the future.
I have some artwork that has no masks and the same issue happens. Any other ideas of why this might be?

I finally figured it out! There's an experimental feature called simplify under the app settings. Once you do this, it imports all correctly as vectors!
It still doesn't work when I send it directly into illustrator. This only works when I export it as a PDF. And SOME illustrations it doesn't work on. Although it does on most.
