Covering a wide range of topics, from advanced masking to chart creation, Illustrator CS4 Beyond the Basics reveals a whole new level of power, creativity, and efficiency with Illustrator. Instructor Mordy Golding explores how to work with Live Paint groups, get the most out of the Live Trace feature, and take advantage of Illustrator’s wide range of effects. He also discusses advanced transformation techniques, powerful 3D functionality, and important color concepts. Exercise files accompany the course.
There are certain features that you use every once in while inside of Illustrator, maybe once a month or something like that, but then there are certain basic functions, things like transformations, scaling, rotating, moving across your screen. You do those many, many times throughout a single day. Those are the things that really make you efficient when you learn how to use them correctly. Now, in this chapter here I want to explore on an advanced level how to actually apply these transformations throughout your artwork. Now, these features have been around forever. However, when you really learn how to apply them you will see how much time that you can save.
