Default Vector graphics for ActionScript

Hello everybody!

I'm trying to write a few simple things in ActionScript. Apparently, using Image from mx.controls, I can import images. I definitely want to use vector graphics, so that leaves me only with SWF or SVG. SVG can not be imported at runtime, which sucks, so that leaves me with SWF.

Now, is there any way to create SWF files? I mean, without buying Illustrator or something like that (let's be honest. I'm a student. There's no way in hell I'm shelling out a couple hundred bucks for the ability to convert stuff to swf). I'm currently using Inkscape, but that just gives me pdf, ps or svg. The svg2swf converter I tried craps itself when it sees a gradient, so does the pdf2swf converter. I haven't found anything that does ps2swf.

So, any ideas?

Thanks a lot in advance,

well, if you just need a few swf graphics, you could download the flash 30 day trial and create and save them with that. Don't know about other converters,
