How does conversion to svg works ?

Post by Faymon »


I wanted to know how the conversion to svg works. I am trying to convert a .xcf(GIMP project file) to a .svg but i get a blank image. So i wanted to know if ImageMagick convert the .xcf into pixels and then try to convert it to svg with some obscure sorcery ?

ImageMagick cannot currently handle the newest GIMP xcf format properly.
