Lightbulb Adding nodes to a fill or transparency.....

I know that sounds weird but you know when you are applying a fill and it's got those little moveable node or control things but there is just one more color or ring of transparency that you want to add in and you feel stuck and you wonder if that is possible and then you forget?? NO?? Well I do!

So IS there a way to add in another one of those node/control things??

I keep forgetting to ask and I finally remembered but I guess you figured that out by now!

Thanks

Richard

Lightbulb Re:Adding nodes to a fill or transparency.....

Yes, Richard, all you need to do is drag and drop a colour from the Colour tab of the Studio onto the fill/transparency path. For some types of fill/transparency, like elliptical, only one of the two radial lines will accept the drag and drop to add a node.

You can also enter the Edit Fill dialog and add/remove/move colours there, and make the graduation non-linear.

HTH, Dale.

I think you'll find Mesh Fills even better than what you first believe

Dave,

Yes, allot more control and allot more fun. There was a guy that came on board the XaraX TG conferance a while back and was going to give a tutorial on their use. He works for Disney or is that Pixar?..anyway, he got busy and flaked out.

Too bad I was REALLY looking forward to that tutorial. He was doing some amazing things with making skin tones that were so realistic you wanted to touch the monitor screen to feel it. Oh well!

Self taught is harder but it sticks better too!
