Illustrator graphic gets pixelated when impoorted and resized in Flash
on Dec 11, 2009 at 9:14:13 pm

Hi All -

I have been trying to import a graphic that I created in Illustrator into Flash. When I go to resize it, it becomes very pixelated. I am making it SMALLER for Pete's sake. I have saved it as a .gif, .png, and converted it to a symbol within Flash. None of this works. Am working on CS3 across the board if that helps.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong or better yet how to do it right? Thanks - Sharon

Open it back up in Illustrator and export it to .swf.

Import to stage or library in Flash.

All of the vim with none of that annoying vigor.

Hi John -

Thanks so much for answering! I gave that a try, but it created a zillion bitmap images and symbols plus the .swf and it still looked pixelated. Perhaps I need to flatten the image first in Illustrator?

FWIW, I did try exporting a a .swf from Illustrator with the Preserve Appearance option selected, as this claims it would flatten the image before exporting, but still got the multiple bitmaps and symbols.
Any suggestions? Flattening or merging a version of the image before export? Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance - Sharon

FWIW also had "AI file to SWF File" selected in the "Export As" dropdown menu - all other choices involved layers and I DIDN"T want that, but still got the layers anyway. :+(

Thanks in advance for help - again. :+) Sharon
