I tired posting this in the Flash section so sorry if you saw this already, this is just driving me bananas and I'd like to get it handled.
First off I'm a noob at Flash so beware.
So I've been surfing the net trying to find a way to get a 100% resolution from Flash to Gif and can't find it.
Here is the deal, I've got Adobe CS5 and I started doing animation in photoshop. It took forever but once I got it done it looked awesome and I could easily transfer it into a gif via 'save for web and devices".
Because it was taking forever I decided to learn flash and after a day I got the basics pretty much figured out and made my first .swf file. I then went to turn it into a Gif and the resolution sucked and the timing was off. I found out that you can clean it up a bit through Publish settings which helped a lot but still any gradients are off.
Is there a way to get a high resolution gif out of Flash to look as good as my photoshop animation gif?
Thanks in advance.

If this is really the case, then that would be pretty lame of adobe to allow for Photoshop to out do Flash.
It is no surprise that there is a difference. The Photoshop GIF saved at 90kb is going to look better than a Flash GIF saved at 49kb.
You need to address your compression options. ... and this would be best done in the forum for that particular software.
Ya if anyone will respond in that forum. I'm starting to think that Adobe doesn't allow you full compression control in flash. The only real option I could find is "losy" or "losless". Besides loseless that I've tried every combination in published settings and nothing can compair to the clearity I get through photoshops animation tool (then compressed to a gif via "save for web and devices").
If someone could tell me or show me how to make this work, I'd really appriciate it.
Why did you post in the Flash Player forum? It is no surprise that nobody answered there.
