The Workshop consists of quiz questions and answers to help you solidify your understanding of the material covered. Try to answer the questions before checking the answers.
What's the most appropriate image file format to import into Flash?
- It depends on the nature or content of the image.
If you import a .gif image into Flash, what kind of compression will Flash use on this image when exporting the entire movie?
- It depends on the Compression setting in the Bitmap Properties dialog box.
- Flash always uses JPEG compression, but it's up to you to specify what quality level to use.
- GIFs are exported as GIFs.
If you import an Illustrator file (.ai) and you get a clump of other graphics (including an upside-down graphic of the word ART), what happened?
- You broke the "keep it simple" rule.
- You tried to import a raster graphic by mistake.
- "You tried importing an Illustrator file saved in a version number greater than 6.0.
C. Although a vector has benefits over a raster, it depends on the graphic. Photographs usually have to stay as raster graphics.
A. Each image imported can have a unique compression setting that is not dependent on its original format.
C. Figure 3.2 shows what you'll get, but it's pretty wild; if you drag all the pieces out, you get a ladybug, an arrow, and the upside-down word ART. This results from importing an Illustrator .ai file that is of a version higher than 6.0.
