Join Von Glitschka for an in-depth discussion in this video Prime point placement, part of Drawing Vector Graphics (2012).
- The second vector build method…is prime point placement.…We use the clockwork method to help…create and establish an initial vector path.…We'll now use prime point placement method…to further dial in our anchor point locations…in order to finalize a precise vector shape…that matches our underlying drawing.…So in the previous movie…you saw me use the clockwork method…to discern where to place my anchor points…in order to form the hat in this figure.…
And I went in, and I adjusted the bezier handles…to form the paths and the bezier curves…in order to create a precision vector graphic.…Now, it's at the next stage, where I want to now…zoom in into areas of this design,…and really scrutinize those placement…of those anchor points,…and the curves that they create because always,…when you get the anchor point location perfect…when you use the clockwork method.…It's not intended to be absolutely perfect every time,…it's to facilitate you to be more accurate,…most of the time, so it'll get you,…for the most part, in the right neighborhood,…
