Having got bored with X and Flash I thought I'd give Live Motion a whirl.
Export 3 coloured circles on layers as eps/ai
'Place' in Live motion
Result 1 green (or what ever the current foreground is) square !!
Ah well ! So just for fun try select one circle in X copy and paste into Live motion ... it sort of works, well you get a coloured circle in a white rectangle. I think I'll leave it and just carry on using Live motion not as nice as X but O.K.
Oh yes, just a thought, rather than worrying about why X won't export anims into Flash should we be asking why Flash hasn't got a Xara importer
