Delete enhanced fill problem

Thats it! I am tired of getting the “Enhanced fill not supported in current player version” problem when I import fills from AI/FH/FW and you need to export to V7 or under, so once and for all I am putting a stop to it.

Here are 3 simple steps to get rid of this problem (of course this will be applied after you have imported a vector image with gradients to your stage).

1. Change your export settings to V8.
2. Pull the “Color Mixer” Palette.
3. Under Overflow select “Extend”, take off the check mark from Linear RGB

That is it now you can change your export settings back to V7 or V6 or under and you should be fine. That is all you have to do and all your problems should go away, no more warnings no more asking you to fix your gradients.

Ah! but sometimes the gradient or Flash will be stubborn and still make fuss about the Fills. Well these are some things you can do..

If under the “Color Mixer” Palette your Overflow was selected as “Extend” and the Linear RGB was unselected, well just select Overflow again and check and uncheck the Linear RGB option. That will fix the stubbornness 99.9999999% of the time.

If you still have troubles after you have completed the steps above feel free to ask.

  1. It worked for me, but not automatically. I had to go in to every instance and manually change the gradient fills back to “extended.”

    Also, many of the strokes where causing an issue because they had been capped as “round” instead of “none.” (on the right side of the shape property box, only active in 8) just turning them back to “none” still prevented exporting in Flash 6, each had to be deleted and redrawn with the export setting set to “Flash 6”

    What a pain… Your post saved my butt though, THANKS!

    One way to fix it is:

    2. Pull the “Color Mixer” Palette.
    3. Under Overflow select “Extend”, take off the check mark from Linear RGB

    4. Draw something (NEW) using the gradient
    5. Make your original (OLD) object’s gradient a solid color
    6. Use the color picker to pick the gradient from (NEW) and add it to the (OLD)

  3. Thanks for the tip. I had to import assets from other Adobe Flash files into a Flash 7 project (need it to work for the Wii, thats why Flash 7) and it began nagging me with the “Enhanced Fill” problem. Thanks to your tips I was able to solve this. 🙂

  4. This problem can be treated AUTOMATICALLY, if you save the FLA as Flash MX (8). But here again the problem arises: Flash since version CS 4 does not support saving a version of the MX! I am sure that there must be a plugin removes all enhanced fill and stroke automatically!
