    is there a way with AS to transform a text field to vectors?

    fabec

      hello,

       

      i very often use animated text (rather for menu titles than paragraphs) in my flash works and the render of fonts is usually quite "dirty" and irregular.

       

      what i now do is convert the alphabet + figures of the font I am using to vectors (Ctrl + B) on the scene and then make movieclips with each letter, wich i store in the library ready for AS to call them.  the rendering quality is uncomparably better.

       

      the truth is i've never had to make more than, say 50 clips "by hand", but it would still make my life easier and save me dull time/work if there was a way with AS to transform a text field to vectors...

       

      thank you very much in advance.  regards,
