I really like the fact that Natron can read SVG files, as I often use that as a part of my design process, and Inkscape is a fantastic tool for this kind of work (and it helps working in a non-destructive manner, as opposed to GIMP for example).
One thing I wondered about was - if it'd be possible to make the Read node pick a layer (or group) in an SVG File?
Inkscape uses SVG Groups with special names to organize the project in layers. if one would be able to see a dropdown list of the layers in the SVG File and be a ble to checkbox which should be drawn, and which should be ommited - that could make some work much simpler.
For example - I have a design that has about 8 layers, and I wrote a little Bash script to export them separately from Inkscape. I then used read nodes to get all the layers into Natron and I used different SeNoise nodes to add gentle motion the the layers - but each layer has a different noise pattern.
If I could use a single Read note, then duplicate it and select different layers to read from the SVG file within that - it'd be much easier.
Maybe it'd even make sense to expose the SVG layers like different passes form EXR files are - there's a Composite pass (all layers) and then separate layer passes.
What do you think? Does any of this make sense to you?
(also: sorry I don't know which forum part is the best one for feature requests)
