Import from Illustrator to Flash Illustratr and Flash charlielha
I've been trying to get some artwork from Illustrator into Flash.
I've tried everything on the book, plus some solutions posted here:
Saved as AI file Version 5, 6, 7, 8
Saved as EPS Version 5, 6, 7, 8 Exported as SWF Copy and pasted from Illustrator to Flash Import to FireWorks, copied and pasted to Flash
On every ocassion I get a different result but I can't get my artwork to look as I have it on Illustrator.
Most of the time I loose part of my Artwork.
Are you using the Import command in Flash (File > Import) to bring in the Illustrator EPS files? I only ask because that is how I import Adobe Illustrator into Flash and I have no problems with it.
As far as it looking different, that could be because you are using a special effect in Illustrator that Flash does not support.
I am using the import command in flash to import illustrator Files.
I beleive is something in the Illustrator file itself because I have been successful in importing Illustrator files in the past.
Do you know if I need to do something to The Illustrator file before importing?

Are you importing files with the .ai extension, or the .eps extension? I'm not sure offhand if that makes a difference or not. Also, what versions of Flash and Illustrator are you using?
Try saving the Illustrator files as an older format .eps and see if that helps.
I don't work in Flash that often, so maybe someone else has some better suggestions?
Ok, I'm not sure if tihs will work for you but I had this problem recently. The way it was solved was by good'ol 'copy and paste'. Seriously it worked. Just selected the gfx in illustrator and pasted into flash. This was line drawings though so anything else may be different. Harry
There are several things to look out when importing from AI to Flash.
1-Don't use copy paste
2-Don't use EPS 3-Use AI 10 or CS 4-Export from AI using the SWF export option - it gives the best results. 5-Don't expect miracles with complex fillings and gradients.
Sticky me your file if you can't do it. I'm very very good with Flash and AI.
heya Harry Ive got exactly the same problem. Would it be possible if you could have a look at the file and see if you could export it to flash?
By the way... Im new.
So HI! :) Harry
