STEP 03 video to vectors: converting a bitmap to a vector GRAPHIC IN FLASH

Flash includes a key feature that makes converting video into vectors possible: Trace Bitmap. This tool turns a bitmap image into a vector graphic with discrete areas of color that are editable. It's great for creating stylized illustrations with a posterized look. More importantly, it can save you a tremendous amount of file size when used correctly.

An animation made of bitmaps can be quite heavy, even with a good amount of jpg compression applied. Converting the bitmaps to vectors gives you a smaller overall file and the chance to add more frames to the animation, resulting in a more fluid motion.
