If I wanted to create mathematically precise beziers for use in Flash,
I'd use something like Saxess Wave:

This allows conversion from XML based markup code to SWF format. This
can then be imported into Flash. For Illustrator, you could use SVG to
get the curves you want and then import.


As an aside to this, does anyone know if the Flash 5 format has
introduced true cubic beziers, or are they approximated using quadratic
beziers? This approximation is the approach used by Saxess Wave.
