I am wondering what is the best way to print images created in Flash to retain the crispness of the vector artwork.

When printing directly from the FLA, any masks or transparent colours don't take effect. Same problem when I export the images to the Illustrator format. And I can't remove the masks or transparent colours (which are part of the design)

At the moment I find I have to export the image to jpeg format and print from Photoshop, or 'print as bitmap' from the swf.

Any tips on the easiest way to print exactly what i see on the stage?
