The maximum number of objects when importing in Beta 2 is 6500. No word yet on whether this will change in future versions.
I know that these limits are anooying, but keep in mind that the more objects you have, the larger and slower your final SWF will be. It's not just a question of what Catalyst will do - it's also a question of your end-user experience.
I am trying to open my first AI project in Flash Catalyst but it is not being friendly to me (or I too it evidently)
I am getting the following error message when trying to open the Ai from Catalyst...
"The design file you have selected has too many objects to import to Adobe Flash Catalyst"
It then tells me I should flatten some layers.
I can't see this being the case because I only have 25 total layers comprising of:
2 simple rectangle paths w/gradient
2 arrow symbols
19 text layers
I'm on a running Snow leopard on a Mac Pro.
