There are many ways, but I might use Clipping mask to mask out everything that is outside the circles. I made one arrow and duplicated it. I also Linked the arrows, so that they can be moved freely, as shown in the gif below. Yellow arrow is in a clipping mask with Circle - RED and Red arrow is in clipping mask with Circle - BLACK.

The reason it's possible is because it doesn't have to be super great quality. Look at this question the print DPI can be much lower on a billboard than your typical print because the viewing distance is so much father away. For instance a 3000x3000px image at 75dpi turns out to be a 40x40in (102x102cm) image. If we switch the dpi to 10, the image becomes ...

This question contains two separate issues, how to do things programmatically and how do you model precise shapes. For all intents and purposes these are unrelated. Seems to me that the only reason you ask the first question is because you are not aware of how to precisely position items within the GUI, but I may be wrong. I will be demonstrating Adobe ...

You can see individual pixels because you're zoomed in to 600%. Photoshop is meant for raster editing; it does not have the same zooming properties found in Illustrator. Even though you're working with vector shapes within Photoshop, it's still rasterizing them for you on your canvas. You can still scale your vector shapes and the quality will be preserved, ...

It collects informations in an easy way (hopefully) and then it launches potrace or autotrace with all the relevant options. Using a GUI sometimes is more comfortable that using command line, it is more interactive, ...

Tracing with BirdFont The potrace algorithm is good but no autotrace algorithm is perfect. I had a similar problem when I tried to auto trace letters with potrace. Small details are not preserved and the result seems to be a little bit smoother than I wanted it to be. I solved this by implementing my own autotrace functionality in BirdFont. It seems to ...

I just came across a similar problem and found that if you untick Responsive in the More options panel in the svg export save as thing it stops the extra whitespace. Not sure what this is or why it is ticked by default. Using creative cloud, not sure if that option is in earlier versions

If I understand your question correctly, Arc Correction by S.H. will work for you. I haven't tried it myself, but it looks like it would do the job.

You can do this, but you have to enable "Show clipping path(s) of selected object(s)" For smaller screens : Also, when you move the image, the clip path doesn't move with the image, so things like this can happen:
