Illustrator Obstacles

He’s a little “Brainy Smurf”-esque

I don’t know if it’s just me but it seems like the gradient tool and the pencil tool in Flash are harder to work with since Adobe bought Macromedia. It’s like they decided Flash wasn’t as crippled as Illustrator so they’d better level the playing field. I have noticed that Flash does a much better job of importing Illustrator than it used to, a nice benefit to the buyout, but as anyone from the digital side has experienced, there’s nothing really desirable about animating something that began it’s life in Illustrator. It’s not built to cut into parts, I typically have to reconstruct most of the design to make it workable. Anyone else seen a benefit from the merger?
