Re: [Swftools-common] pdf2swf -s parameters and optimising swf for size

A couple questions following up on what Tim asked, though not in the same vein:
(1) Does the -s have to be written before each paramater or can it be used for an array, like -s multiply=1 subpixels=n?
(2) Does "multiply" affect the dimension of the swf that is output?

Hi again,

First of all, thanks for the effort on this great piece of free software!

1. I've been playing with -s parameters, which seem to give the user a lot of options on how to enhance and optimise the resulting swf for quality and size. This is great! However, when using '-s multiply=1.5' for example it seems to give the same result as '-s multiply=1'. Is it possible that in a future version this could be enhanced or is there some technical limitation why one cannot give "-s multiply=1.5"? I would also like to use '-s multiply=0.5' btw.

2. Also, I noticed when using '-s bitmap' that the text gets jpegged, i.e. it goes blurry or gets jpeg artifacts. It would be great if in a future version the text could be stored as a png and the images as jpeg in the swf (if that is possible) in the case of '-s bitmap'.

3. On another note/question: What exactly does '-s subpixels=n' do? I tried it with a PDF and otherwise giving the same parameters it gave me a file that was bigger than the first one. (First one was subpixels=8, second was subpixels=4) which I found strange since it should reduce the quality.

Even without answering these questions: Thank you so much for writing and maintaining this software.
