Is there a way to import an SWF file into illustrator without using Flash?


Question

What I want is to import an SWF file into Illustrator.

I prefer doing that with an exchange open source tool, if there is.

Accepted Answer

There's no way to directly import a .swf into Illustrator without access to Flash, as the file types are not compatible.

You could use a tool to convert it, but I don't know of any Open Source ones.

PDF995 (a free online tool) apparently lets you import the SWF and then export it as PDF, which can be opened by Illustrator. You do it by going to SWF window > Print and choosing a PDF printer.
