Gradient in an EPS - Macromedia Freehand

What is the best way to go about making an EPS with a gradient fill. I will be doing some artwork in Freehand then placing it in an InDesign file. Every EPS I make looks bad, the gradient is badly banded in preview in InDesign and in print. OSX (10.3.2) FreehandMX InDesign 2.0.2...

    What is the best way to go about making an EPS with a gradient fill. I will be
    doing some artwork in Freehand then placing it in an InDesign file. Every EPS I
    make looks bad, the gradient is badly banded in preview in InDesign and in
    print.

    I assume you're using a PostScript printer ...

    Check the resolution settings with the Page Inspector in your
    original FreeHand file. It should be at least 1200 dpi, preferably
    higher. Beside controlling the default number of steps in newly
    created blends, this setting affects the number of steps in all
    exported or printed gradient fills.
