Hello ! I have learned recently a new method to add grain texture on my illustration. I want my output file was an SVG to use such as a design for a website. The method is to add a mask on a copie of the form, and to add gradient and grain fx on this mask. The problem is, when I export the file in SVG the layer with the mask have totally disappeared. If I try to export in SVG the layer with mask lonely is not working.
The result when I export in svg :
If you take time to read this, thank you very much !
When making an SVG, you are exporting code. So you can only create in Illustrator what the SVG specifications support. SVG supports alpha masking, but it looks like Illustrator cannot export it correctly.
So your only options seems tobe tocreate this by coding it, or to convert the whole thing into pixels and then of course make a feature request on Uservoice.

Thank you for your reply !
Glad you could solve it and thank you for the added information.
