Black sqaures converting SVG to GIF

Post by denious » 2019-08-08T11:20:02-07:00

Hi all,

My team has very little experience using ImageMagick, so please let me know what info I can provide to help figure this one out!

Using the .NET library - Magick.NET-Q8-AnyCPU 7.10.2 - we are converting SVGs to GIFs and get black rectangles instead of text. The only related bug I found online was related to flowed text, which we do not use.

Here's an example and it's source:

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Denis

Your link to the SVG gives "404 file not found".

The conversion works fine for me in IM 7.0.8.59 Q16 Mac OSX using Inkscape as the renderer.

Code: Select all

ImageMagick can use one of 3 renderers for SVG: its own MSVG/XML, RSVG delegate and Inkscape in order of increasing best results. The default is MSVG/XML. So if you have not installed RSVG or Inkscape, you will likely be using MSVG. Try installing Inkscape on your system. ImageMagick will use that if it finds it.

Thanks for your replies! The issue was with RSVG not rendering the text because of missing fonts, all fixed now!
