Flash - Publishing problem


I am currently working with Flash MX 2004 and I've added graphics to the scenes in my .fla. The graphics, copied and pasted from an Illustrator eps file and saved as a Flash symbol (graphic), seem to be causing a problem when I test a scene or publish a movie. I try to test the movie but Flash stops mid way and there is no error message. The same thing happens when I publish a movie.  Does anyone know what might cause Flash to stop the testing or publish process part way but with no error message?

That's weird, but has happend to me...
Try the following to see if it works.

1) Create a new or temporary fla file.
2) On that file, import your eps.
3) Once the eps is on stage, select all of it and press Ctrl+B many times until your eps grouped shapes are breaked into a single shape.
4) Select all again and press F8 to convert it to a symbol.
5) Copy your new symbol and paste it to the movie your working into.

Hope this helps,

Thanks. I'll give that a try if I decide to go with eps. I've decided to revert back to importing a swf instead. By all accounts that seems to be the preferred way of importing vector graphic and maintaining the integrity of the illustration.
