I had been using Flash MX 2004 previously to create sprites for video games. In the "export" dialog, there was a check box labeled 'smooth,' which I could un-check in order to retain the hard edges that I needed in order to use the sprites in a game.
Somewhat recently, I upgraded to Flash CS4. I have since noticed that, while the 'smooth' checkbox is still there in the "export" dialog, it doesn't do anything. The exported image is anti-aliased whether or not the box is checked.
I have tried many different options for exporting, including all different kinds of file types. Through this experimentation, I also noticed:
1) that even though it is possible to choose a palette when exporting a .gif, the exported image does not use this palette, and
2) that if one exports the image as an Adobe Illustrator file, the colors are wrong.
What I want is to export an image that is not anti-aliased, and uses only the colors that I picked when drawing. Is this still possible in CS4, as it was in MX 2004?
Hello. It may seems quite stupid and maybe it is but, if the checkbox is there, sometimes the problem dissapears reinstaling the software. I had in fact a similar problem with mi 2004 FLASH PROFESIONAL. Sometimes it seems that the aplication has been instaled properly but it hasn't. Good luck. MamenFLASH$
