We've got some really nice characters that have been created
in Illustrator, and they all use at some point a few simple
gradients. When we export those characters as swfs they look fine
in flashplayer, but on importing into flash, the gradients become
blocks of gradients and losing their masks. I've seen in earlier
forums back in 2005 it seems that the gradients turn to bmps, and
the only way around that was to keep as flat colours when exporting
from illustrator and then reapplying in Flash.
Have there been any improvements or work arounds in recent
months since the introduction of flash 8 and CS 2?
