It looks like the .ai file is getting rasterized in FrameMaker, and thus the stair-stepping. Try saving the Illustrator version as PDF and import the PDF into FrameMaker and see if you get better results. You could also try EPS.

Can someone explain how to fix the distortion that is occurring in graphic in the pdf output? I embedded the .ai file into the frame page and tried the "save as pdf" (high quality) and "print to pdf" (standard) methods of output, but the distortion occurs on both. I even tried creating a new frame file in case there was something hidden in the original file I was using. Any ideas would be appreciated. Chris
