SVG Importer doesn't close polygon when importing <circle> where fill is set to 'none'

Resolve/Fusion version:

OS and version:
Windows 10

Additional relevant system info:
Not important.

Description of the bug:
When importing an SVG file with only a simple <circle> element and a stroke color, and fill set to 'none', the SVG importer supports the border only (no fill) circle shape, but doesn't close that polygon path so it's not a circle anymore after import. It does work when setting the fill to fully transparent, but that's obviously not what we want. We want to set a fill to 'none' in our vector editors as that's what we're after and is a normal workflow!!

Test svg:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "">
<svg width="1920px" height="1080px" version="1.1" xmlns="" xmlns:xlink="" xml:space="preserve">
    <circle cx="370" cy="526" r="222" style="fill:none;stroke:#808080;stroke-width:8px;"/>
Severity (Trivial, Minor, Major, Critical)
Critical on the svg importer, as we cannot trust the svg importer on even simple shapes to import.

Steps to reproduce:
Import above svg with Fusion --> Import --> SVG.
