Hello! My name is Mordy Golding and welcome to Illustrator CS5 New Features. You know, Illustrator is one of those applications that can help you do so many different kinds of things. And with Illustrator CS5, Adobe has added some great new features and a wealth of advancements. In this title, you'll learn how to use the new Perspective Grid feature to define vanishing points, to map two- dimensional artwork directly onto perspective planes, and also, to adjust the thickness of stroke attributes along a path.
The artist in you will be inspired with an incredible new feature, Bristle Brush. It turns your pressure-sensitive tablet and pen, like this Wacom Intuous 460 Art pen, into a full range of responsive and realistic artist brushes. Perhaps most significantly, you'll learn about the small things in Illustrator CS5 that really make this upgrade worthwhile, enhancements like a new Artboards panel, dashed strokes that always line up correctly, better control over symbols and a Join command that actually lets you connect more than one path at a time.
These are the kinds of things that will make you wonder how you ever got by without them. So join me in an in-depth look at everything that's new about Illustrator CS5.
