Illustrator + Invision Workflow

Hi!

Does anyone have any best practices for an Illustrator & Invision workflow?

I like studio but would like to keep things like vector editing native to Illustrator since they might be adapted somewhere else in the future (i.e video, print, etc)

Hi Emily,

As you've discovered, Adobe Illustrator and InVision Studio do not currently work together easily. However, one thing I can confirm is that we're tracking interest for the ability to import Adobe Illustrator (.EPS) files into Studio.

If this sounds like something you're interested in, please let me know and I would be happy to open a ticket to track your interest. 

Best,

Shaina

Definitely interested!

Do you have any recommendations as to how people are currently using both programs together?

Happy to open a ticket to track your interest for this feature, Emily! Please look for an email confirming your feedback has been added to this feature request.

As for recommendations on how to use the two programs togethers, I will leave that to the rest of the Community to chime in. At this time, we can suggest importing SVG files from Illustrator into Studio. You can learn more about this here.

Thanks again for reaching out here in Community,

Shaina

I second this sentiment. I prefer to use AI and, as a long-time Invision user would appreciate a more seamless workflow.

Emily, I build my AI files using a layer for each page, and set up an artboard for each viewport (desktop, tablet, mobile) within that layer. Here's a screenshot of my layers for a current project. This workflow allows me to work on design and iteration incredibly fast and efficiently, but saving files for upload to Invision can be a slog.

Thanks so much for sharing your workflow here, John! We're also tracking interest in a feature request that would allow users to sync files directly from Illustrator to InVision Cloud using Craft, which would make the process much simpler and quicker. I'll go ahead and open a ticket to track your interest for this feature. Please keep an eye out for an email confirming that your vote has been officially registered. 

Please let me know if there’s anything else I can do to help.

Cheers,

Monika

Hi, I have to admit that not being able to use Sketch (I'm working on PC) is a major deterrent for me to use inVision. Our company uses an Enterprise license for Adobe and not being able to at least design in Illustrator makes it very difficult to motivate for inVision purchases going forward.


Thanks for the workflow John - we automate the export of AI files to images with layer prefixes and there might be a way to automate the export of SVG's.

Hi Andre,

We really appreciate your feedback and I'm sorry that there isn't a more seamless solution that we could offer at this time. Just to mention – our design, animation and prototype platform InVision Studio is available on Windows. You will be able to import SVG files into Studio as mentioned here. We would love for you to give it a try, if you haven't already.

As Shaina mentioned above, we also have a feature request that would add the ability to import Adobe Illustrator (.EPS) files into Studio. If this is something you would be interested in, please let me know and we will be happy to add your +1 to the feature request.

We know that this is not an ideal solution, but we hope that some of this information has helped out. If you have any further questions or comments, please reach out anytime.

Cheers,

Monika

Hey! Are there any updates on this? We are really hoping invision is releasing something very very soon to import .EPS files.

Take care,

HI, I would also like to add my vote for Illustrator + Invision integration. It is much more appropriate that Photoshop. 

Thanks for the consideration.

I really wish I could connect Illustrator to Invision for feedback and approvals. I'm using Illustrator for process visualizations, and the interface is just easier than Sketch. I can work cleaner with Illustrator. If dynamic symbols does what I think it does, then connecting into Illustrator will make Sketch obsolete I think
