Importing Bitmaps

Macromedia Flash may be vector-based, but that doesn’t mean your movie content is limited to objects you have drawn in Flash. You can easily import other file formats, including bitmaps. Vector graphics cannot compete with the photorealism of bitmaps. Although you must edit your bitmaps in other programs, Flash allows you to import and transform them.

Flash can import bitmaps in a variety of formats. Many depend on your having QuickTime 4 or higher installed. Table 4.1 lists the file formats that you can import into Flash MX without having QuickTime installed.
