Hello everyone,


I have a PDF which I’ve generated from an AI file (using GhostScript).  I then want to take the AI file to SWF using PDF2SWF.  The problem is the file never finishes processing.   The only way I can get it to complete is to use “-O1”, however, in a programmatic environment I cannot readily detect this scenario without the use of some large process timeout and then utilize the O1 parameter.  Is it possible there is a bug here or some other optimal workaround?


Thanks for the info!







AI File:  http://www.salmizar.com/BadAI.ai

PDF File: http://www.salmizar.com/BadAI.pdf


PDF2SWF Command:

pdf2swf -T9 -s linksopennewwindow -s linknameurl --set storeallcharacters="1" -z "C:\TEMP\BadAI.pdf" -o "D:\TEMP\BadAI.swf"


Verbose Output Command:

pdf2swf -vvv "D:\TEMP\BadAI.pdf" -o "D:\TEMP\BadAI.swf"
