If I add a drop shadow to an asset in Sketch, then export that asset as an svg, then open that asset in Gimp, I see the shadow, so the shadow must be exporting to the svg.

However, if I import into Android Studio as vector, shadow is removed. Any idea how to reproduce the drop shadow in Android Studio vector?


  • Most likely its omitted because its raster.

  • As far as I know, SVG drop shadow effects aren't supported in VectorDrawable. You'll need to use some other method to construct a drop shadow. Please note that coding is off-topic here. There's at least one question with answers on Stack Overflow
