I created some vector graphics for my company's website in fireworks because I like the pixel perfect control I get but now everybody likes the artwork so much that they want to use it all over the place, even for some large posters.
I want to create an illustrator version but when I paste the vectors from fireworks to illustrator they get rasterized. Anyone know if there's a way to import from fireworks to illustrator and keep the artwork as vectors?
Thanks in advance!

File -> Export -> Choose "FXG and Images" in the drop-down for file type.
This produces a much higher quality vector map than the AI8 "Save As" format does.

Save as > Illustrator 8 AI format selected from drop-down for file format.

Save as Fireworks PNG (which is an Adobe extension of bitmap PNG that supports vectors etc)
Goto above illustrator and open same file in that.
Adobe products share many file formats in common.
