    Importing vector graphics into flash

    Hi

    I am using Flash MX on a mac running OS X 10.3.7. I am trying to import a logo from illustrator 10 that has been saved as an illustrator EPS. However I try to import this graphic it appears as it does in the attached file or in the pic at the following URL:

    http://gallery.purpleocity.net/The-P.../import?full=1

    When I try to import flash does not recognise the file as an illustrator EPS. I have saved and re saved. I have copied and re copied. I have imported and re imported but nothing seems to work. Does anyone have any idea why flash will not accept this graphic?

    Ade.

    Hi...
    How about exporting it as a BMP or jpeg instead?

    Flash has big problems reading both Ilustrator and eps files.
    I also it they shpould be save as Illustrator 6 at the most.

    However I do believe that Illustrator can save as a swf file though. That option should work. Flash does not understand complex gradients and such however.
