I have an ad that I originally built in Flash MX 2004 which I need to also have available as an animated gif. The ad includes some text blocks that fly in from the top, bottom and sides. Conversion to an animated gif always worked fine in MX, and it works fine in CS4 as long as I specify Flash as Flash 7 when I publish. If I specify Flash 8 or higher, the published swf looks OK. However, the text on the gif is smeared and totally unreadable.
