- Earlier we took a chance to set up Adobe Photoshop…so it was a little bit more video-friendly.…Let's do the same to Adobe Illustrator.…To start, open up your Preferences.…This might be under the Illustrator menu,…or under the Edit menu,…but the shortcut is cmd or ctrl + k…just like Photoshop.…This will bring up a very similar dialog.…There are a lot of different options here within this.…Not many need to be tweaked.…I prefer to use rectangular corners when I scale.…Makes it easier to see things.…
For Sync Settings, you don't need to worry about this.…By default, it will store your settings in Creative Cloud.…For the Type category,…I tend to adjust things just slightly.…I like to see my font names in English,…and Auto Size Text as I first enter it.…I also like my previews to be a bit larger.…For Units, I will switch this to measure in pixels…as opposed to points.…This makes it a lot easier to evaluate video graphics.…
Notice you can even measure type in pixels.…This measurement can be useful…if you're designing video graphics…
