I am trying to optimize a file to draw it with a plotter.
If I use the file "as-is" a lot of strokes will be drawn by the plotter that are actually not visible parts of the drawing.
So I would like to remove all the parts of strokes that are not visible. In this screenshot, I highlighted the kind of strokes I want to remove on the jogger woman, while I already removed all the invisible strokes for the man (a long process!).
The only way I can think of right now would be to rasterize the image and then image trace it, but ideally there would be a less destructive way of doing that?
