    Hey all,

    In the recent release of Animate, under File→Publish Settings→Other Formats→SVG Image (checkbox)→Options, there is now a checkbox “Optimize For Character Animator”.

    Using it, you can export an SVG image that Character can import, that will have a layers structure that works well in Character. While you can’t yet export an SVG sequence from Animate, right now you can get the image from Animate to Character with minimal clutter and add rigging to it for performance. Let us know if this is helpful and what you want to see happen next!

    The "Optimize for Character Animator" works with lots of errors. Look at this FLA which contains simple drawing of a ship.

    Also I attached an exported SVG file. Here are some troubles I found opening it in Illustrator or Character Animator (same problems):

    1) The second line from the bottom is thicker.
    2) The ropes holding wheels are missing.
    3) The layers are mixed up. For example check the "opona kuter 1" layer.
    It contains a lot of lines that doesn't belong to this layer.

    Without the optimize option it works much better, but there are no layer names so it's useless...

    More than month ago I submitted this problem to Adobe Support, but it's still an ongoing process without any solution.
