You have been given a flash file and you want to extract the graphics which are all done in flash and convert it into a vector file. The software that i’m using here are Flash CS6 and Illustrator CS6.
- Open the flash file.
- Select the graphic you want to extract.
- Go to File > Export > Export Selection > Save as .fxg
- Open Illustrator and create a new document. File > New
- Go to File > Place
- To edit the lines, shapes and colors, select the object and break to symbol. Right click > Break Link to Symbol
There are times when the color is not imported properly into Illustrator, like when the flash file object has color blending. I can fix the color manually in Illustrator, but when I don’t have a lot of time, and If I don’t really need to edit the shape for the artwork, i’ll just export it as PNG. That’ll do the trick.
