What is the best way of exporting vector based images from Flash so I can open it in Illustrator?
I frequently design basic vector graphics in Flash as I find manipulating shapes much easier and intuitive. Now with the upgrade I am finding this impossible to save out and it has really slowed down my progress.
Is there anyway whatsoever in achieving this as Flash is, after all a brilliant vector based programme?
Thanks for getting back to me. How do I go about do this in FlashCC kglad? I don't get any vector options when exporting an image through FlashCC.
When I export a fxg from Flash CS6, Illustrator CC has trouble reading it.
i see you don't have that option. i don't have flash cc activated on my mac right now so i can't confirm if that's an expected mac limitation or a problem with your installation.
i'll try to remember to deactivate my office flash cc so i can test on my home mac later today.
I'm guessing you haven't found ay more information regarding this S.kglad?
I tried to find out more from Adobe, last I heard, it was to be included on an update. But this was a long time ago!
sorry, i keep forgetting to deactivate at my office.
by the end of the day, i'm usually distracted thinking about something else. (like getting home and eating food.)
have you updated your flash cc? i know any update was released recently. i don't know if it fixed this issue, though.
My Flash CC does not allow .FXG or .eps export any longer either. CS 6 does it but not Flash CC. I rwad somewhere there was a n update coming that will supposedly make this even better but it'd be nice to have it right now without having to keep CS 6 on my computer as well. For what it's worth, My CS 6 does not have svg export either. Neither does Flash CC.
Yes I have upgraded my Flash CC to the latest version and still have no option of exporting an image in a vector format. I have heard exactly the same that Adobe will release this feature is an update, but that was a long time ago. It would be nice to know when they are planning to do this rather then left hanging to do things the long way round.
SVG export is a Work in Progress for exporting out vector content from Flash CC and would be usable in Illustrator as well. This would be available with the next major update to be released shortly.
For now, you may try out a third party SVG exporter for Flash Pro:
Hope this helps!
I'll eagerly await the next major update, although I do agree to some of the feedback here. Since vector design is a key feature in Flash, a lack of a vector image export is a big oversight. Is there any indication to when the next update could be?
