    Guys,

    Where can I get software that converts regular picture files into vector based files? Vectors that can be easily imported into FLASH. Also, what are your suggestions of good VECTOR software(s)?

    Thanks,
    MarcNYC

    The easiest way is to use the "trace bitmap" in Flash 5. They convert regular pics into vector with using any other external vector converter program.

    If you insist on using other, try Adobe streamline.

    i've used a few different apps, like xara x, and i have to say that flash has the best bitmap tracer i've tried.

    are you trying to do something really complicated?


    btw the way i would recommend xara x to anyone, it's my favourite app.
