Hello Lynx,

 

Even though this is not a GSAP specific question, we have to stay focused on questions relating to the GSAP API. ;)

 

But have you tried to Google that

 

https://www.google.com/search?q=save+points+as+SVG+from+Illustrator+&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

 

or search StackOverflow:

or search Adobe illustrator Documentation and Forums

Those links i posted above show how to export your artwork in illustrator to a SVG file. The points will be saved in the SVG graphical child elements attributes.. of the exported SVG file.

If You need small and clean svg, You have to write Your own svg exporter in ExtendScrip's .jsx javascript format. This is the language of the Adobe applications. But It requires a lot of time, adept patience ( bad documentation, sluggish JS engine ) and journeyman skill in JS. 

But if a stock SVG is fine, You can File/Export it, clean it with SVGOMG: https://jakearchibald.github.io/svgomg/
If You need only one shape's data, just Right click/Export it.

If you chose the hard way, You can start studying these:

The points are saved within the SVG file but you must extract them without destroying the SVG graphic which is not only pain staking but a hit or miss; not ideal route to go down.

 

A script would be helpful, thanks for the input everyone :)
