exporting post-process results

Postby albasha » Sat Jul 29, 2017 10:16 pm

Hi there,
I am exporting the final animated results using PDF extension. The problem I have is that when I am trying to edit this file using any other software i.e. draw plus I could not since the exported file appears as a picture. My question is that is there any possibility to export the final mesh as it is (as continuous lines, not a picture)?
Kind regards

I underestand that do you want some 'vectorial' image instead of a bitmap/pixmap (2D array of colors)
Try
Files->Print to file->ps/eps
but this is for a single image, not for animations.
and probably it will be difficult to be edited with a vectorial drawing editor
try also SVG format

VRML is also a vectorial format, but it is 3D, not 2D as I guess that you are expecting

Dear escolano,
Thank you so much for your kind reply. Kindly, could you suggest me any free software that I could use to edit vectorial format?

I am not using any vector image edition software.
Maybe Inkscape could be an open source option https://inkscape.org
