This was my biggest stumbling block with AS. I've used AI for years so it was my drawing tool of choice. Switching to any another drawing app just wasn't going to work for me...period. So after a few nights I stumbled upon this method.
This is the original AI file:
AI files come into AS <File > Import > Adobe Illustrator File...> kind of loose and sloppy because AS doesn't know exactly how to interpolate the AI bezier information. To overcome this we can add a few more points to help define the curve. This is like giving your Grandpa block-by-block directions to his new pharmacy instead of simply waving your hand giving general directions.
To do this we do a: Object > Path > Add Anchor Points:
The AI file will then look something like this:
Export as Illustrator 8.0:
It'll come into AS looking something like this.
Notice that AS was nice enough to add a few points of its own. This'll be useful later when you export without using Object > Path > Add Anchor Points.
All you have to do is delete any unnecessary points - should you choose. I know it looks like there's alot of junk to clean up, but after going thru the process a few times you'll know exactly which points to modify & which to delete.
As you get more and more comfortable with modifying the imported shapes you'll want to try importing shapes without Object > Path > Add Anchor Points. This'll make clean-up less annoying.
I hope this helped. Lemme know if I missed anything.
