I am trying to import and SVG to the Stage in Adobe Animate CC so that each path/element of the SVG on a separate layer, as described on the official Adobe help pages. When I select "Import each path to different layer", all paths are always still brought in on a single layer. Has anyone experienced this? What am I doing wrong?
Open your "SVG" in Illustrator, and move the assets to different LAYERS first.
Resave as a new AI file (you can try SVG but...)
Import the NEW AI file into Animate CC.
NOTE: SVG's are looked at as ONE FLAT LAYER. (in some programs)
P.S. do the same thing... swear at my computer.. and then try again, lol
If you can't import every shape/SVG element to separate layer, then try separating them to different layers after importing by 1) selecting all elements you'd like to separate, 2) use the Distribute To Layers command. (Modify > Timeline > Distribute To Layers).
The only downside is that you will loose any layer names and layer hierarchy you used in the original .ai or SVG file.
