hi, thanks for info but ...
i already posted examples months (maybe a year) ago where the same pdf was converted and i even made a tool to count and animate the clips in the resulting swfs to examine the pdf2swf output. new version was worse (invisible shapes under objects and thus much more objects ... bad for web/cpu/speed/performance)

Not a great user of pdf2swf myself, however..

.. I could supply you both with an example where the exact opposite is the case.

Converting thiis particular  pdf ( a music score of a concert study by
Liszt, so there
is a fair deal of graphic content in it - one which I'd normally
render via Lily anyway )
gets dramatically reduced in size.

So, rather than just general griping, how's about,

-  checking via verbose, exactly what sort of image content may possibly be
  responsible for the size increase of the resulting, swf.

-  which ( if any ) isn't

-  posting an example or two.

This is after all, an open source project, which thrves on user
feedback and testing.

jooi, the above-mentioned Liszt pice contain pbm images.


a demonstratin example?
