JPEXS: Do you have any idea why is this (attached swf) square red? Is red a default color in flash?
Nope, no idea, but it's not red in the game, but transparent, and If I export\reimport it - it becomes black instead of red, and totally not transparent but just solid black
Please try thge latest nightly. Now it exports a red square, and imports it back. It is not possible to export the transparent thing, because that image (characterid=191) probably comes from an external souce, which is not available during the export. So if you want to import it as transparent, edit the SVG before importing it.
I convert this to a feature request, because this is not a bug anymore. FFDec should add some kind of private data to the SVG which shows FFDec how to import the SVG back to the SWF. In your case the (relevant part of) the SVG is: <g transform="matrix(1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0, 0.0)"> <path d="M0.0 0.0 L32.0 0.0 32.0 32.0 0.0 32.0 0.0 0.0" fill="#ff0000"/> </g> But it should be: <g transform="matrix(1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0, 0.0)"> <path d="M0.0 0.0 L32.0 0.0 32.0 32.0 0.0 32.0 0.0 0.0" ffdec:fill="{somehow serialize here the fillstyle}"/> </g> And of course add the namespace declaration: xmlns:ffdec="/flash" Custom attributes in a custom namespaces are supported by SVG: So the result is a valid SVG. But maybe this information will be lost if you edit the SVG file with a 3rd party SVG editor.
