You can rasterize anything that's not text with "-s poly2bitmap", but that tends to give pretty blurry results - get around this with "-s multiply=4". That's as good as you're going to get I think; as far as I know there isn't a way to simplify vector artwork in a pdf.

Hope that helps,

I have a problem with some pdf files that give me the error
"This file is too complex to render- SWF only supports 65536 shapes at once".

I understand that SWF can't handle that much shapes, but is there a way to 
reduce the shapes in the pdf (maybe another program)? I have Adobe Acrobat 9 
but I don't know how to reduce the pdf.

Or can pdf2swf somehow handle these files? Which parameters should I use?

Here is a sample of the error output:
pdf2swf -G -f -i -p 1-9 "file 29.pdf" -o "page-temp-00%.swf"
NOTICE  outputting one file per page

Thanks for your help!
