    Morning guys,

    I had another quick question, when I import a file from illustrator my file gets converted as a bitmap is there a way I can keep my AI file as vector?; the reason for this I created a map of canada and the us and I need to zoom in and out of the map I see the divisions of the provinces/stats being bitmap Id like to keep it clean and my map was created in illustrator cs3. I know I could use Flash for this type of animation but unfortunately I need to do this in AFX.

    wish I knew how to delete apost… but I figure it out.. by pressing the little sunshine in my toggle bar we see the vector… in the preview its bitmap for better performance… it all makes sense now! 🙂

    [Stephan Dube] “by pressing the little sunshine in my toggle bar we see the vector”

    That’s the ‘continuously rasterize/collapse transformations’ layer switch. Read up on it, it’s a valuable little switch =)
