  3. If you're used to using Illustrator, you're best off biting the bullet and starting to use FreeHand MX to create Flash images for which of the following reasons?

    1. Illustrator is only at version 10, whereas MX is really version 11.

    2. This is a trick question: Illustrator is better than FreeHand in all ways.

    3. This is a trick question: Although Macromedia would like you to use FreeHand, either tool is perfectly suited for the job.

Quiz Answers

  1. C. Although a vector graphic has benefits over a raster graphic, the most appropriate image file format to import into Flash depends on the graphic. Photographs usually have to stay as raster graphics.

  2. A. Each image imported can have a unique compression setting that is not dependent on its original format.

  3. C. Although Answer A is actually true, either Illustrator or FreeHand will do a fine job. You should use the one you prefer.
