Hello- question from an illustrator to flash workflow n00b.


I'm creating a flash experience with animated characters.

I'm building my art assets in illustrator.

I've found it relatively easy & straightforward to import assets from illustrator into flash.

I can conveniently import my layers and symbols from illustrator as separate layers and symbols in flash and manipulate them.


However, let's say after import I want to change something with an asset using illustrator. For example, I have a character with facial features, including eyes. I want to change the eyes in illustrator and have those changes then be propogated in some way- automagically or manually- in flash.


What is the right way to do this? Are there best practices for being able to go back and forth between flash and illustrator?


Thank you!
