A minor update of the Fireworks to XAML Exporter has been posted on the Infragistics Visual Design Group site. This post addresses a gradient conversion issue that occurred under certain circumstances.
Fireworks gradient fills consist of a collection of color nodes and a collection of opacity nodes. Because an object can also have an opacity mask applied separately from the collection of opacity nodes, I am merging the opacity nodes with the color nodes into a single GradientStopCollection. Each gradient stop is of the format #AARRGGBB, which results in the same effect. This allows me to apply a separate opacity mask and maintain the Fireworks visual. This issue occurred during the node merge process.
