I'm designing a logo for someone but i got a huge problem.

I've got this paperpress effect (Inside glow):


I need to export this to an SVG format But when i do this and open it in my browser, this happends:


The effect just doesn't work anymore like it should.

Before this all, i exported the exact same logo WITH a rectangle spanned across the file (Background) and then it worked perfectly. How can the problem occur when i remove the background but doesn't occur when i have a background?

Does anyone know how i can fix this?

Things i've tried:

  • Fiddle around with the SVG export settings

Kind regards, Dobbermann2

This is an example of quite bombproof SVG. Something resembling is crunched together in Inkscape. No effects are used, only simple paths, fills, strokes, gradients and the normal blending mode:

The text was outlined and the strokes of the text were lifted above the grey gradient layer.

The SVG file was opened in Firefox browser. Here's a screenshot:

I would consider trying to create the desired effect another way, as svg's aren't ideal for (and don't usually support) complex detail and effects.
