Did You Know?

  • The Trace Bitmap command converts a bitmap image into a vector image. Try various settings to mix up the results, but remember that settings at the low end of the thresholds for Color, Minimum Area, and Curve Fit can produce a large file.

  • Because Flash lets you apply compression options internally, you should consider importing all images as some type of lossless format—a TIFF, for example. This way, you can have better control over the end results, and you are not applying compression to an image that already has been compressed once.

  • Flash preserves the alpha information inside a PNG or PICT bitmap upon import. This lets you set up intricate artwork in other design applications and bring them in unfettered to Flash.

  • Although Flash doesn't play back video in the player, you can use Flash to import movie files, and then export them as bitmap sequences. Also, you can use a brief bitmap sequence to simulate video playback, although your file size can grow quickly with this effect.

  • After you have compressed an image, try reducing the size a small amount. Rescaling often obscures some of the obvious effects resulting from a high compression.
