Need Help Getting ClipMask To Work

Jul 23, 2014 at 9:54 PM
Hey guys;

I am a software engineer, working with our UI team to get some SVGs rendered into PNGs to save some bandwidth. The conversion seems to work fine, with the exception of our clipping masks defined in the <defs><clipPath ..> section of our SVGs don't seem to have any effect on the resulting PNGs. I apologize that I am not super-versed in SVG or Magick, but I have a strong knowledge of XML and .Net. Anyway, below is what my <defs> element looks like.
<svg xmlns="" xmlns:xlink="" version="1.1" xml:space="preserve" preserveAspectRatio="none" angle="Front" class="root-svg" opacity="1" width="800" height="800" viewBox=" 0 100 1200 1200">
        <defs clipping-regions="" angle="Front" style-path-count="sharedCount" ud-data="uniformDesign" garment="Jersey" defs-loaded="defsStatus" inwidth="width" inheight="height" id="defs018"><clipPath id="clip0018"><path fill="#6FCCDD" d="..." display="inline"></path></clipPath></defs>
                <!-- SVG Content -->
For the code, all I am doing is reading in the SVG content, and then writing it as a PNG:
using (var jersey = new MagickImage()){
I have also tried rendering the path element as a separate SVG, and then loading it as a ClipMask using the ClipMask property, but that doesn't seem to work either. I am certain that it's just me doing something stupid, but any help that you could provide would be awesome. Thank you!

I don't know if librsvg supports the clipPath element (this is the internal library that is being used to read SVG files). Can you provide me with your complete file to see if I can get it to work with either librsvg or by using ClipMask/Clip. If you don't want to share it publicly then feel free to contact me trough CodePlex.

Hey dlemstra,

Thank you! The file is rather large, bigger than the 2000 char limit for CodePlex messages. Can I email it to you? if you want to, email me at [deleted] and I will respond with the file.

Thank you!

Actually, we just figured it out using Composite. Thank you so much for your help!
