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.
Way back in Illustrator 9, Adobe introduced the concept of transparency, which gives designers the ability to add soft drop shadows, glows, to use different blend modes, so on and so forth. However many designers have avoided that traditionally only because they feared whether or not that file would actually print correctly. Well, in reality you don't even have to transparency at all. It does print well, but there are certain concepts and best practices that you should probably know about. So if you are ever working with files that do have transparency you will find a tremendous amount of information in these movies. For example, how does transparency work, what are the file formats to use, so on and so forth, that will make sure that you sleep well at night and you will know that your files will always print correctly.
