1) Is CS5 any better with exporting these kinds of fills to Flash?
Not that I know. Inherent limitation in how differently this stuff works between the two apps.
2) Does anyone have a better solution for converting these to SWFs?
You could build a symbol/ pattern library in Flash and assign rthe fills there., could you not?
You can create the art in Illustrator and bring that into Flash as vector and then as Mylenium suggest make the fill there.
Interesting idea. I'll look into it.
A bit of a problem: I do not see any efficient means of creating vector patterns within Flash.
I guess I'm out of luck, huh?
