Learn about creating and applying a river appearance.
- [Instructor] Okay, so now we have our river…and in the exercise file that I'm using…it's all nicely faded out at the ends as well.…And hopefully you took the opportunity at the end…of the previous exercise to practice…on fading those out as well.…But what we're going to focus on in this movie…is changing the style of it.…So what I'm going to do is bring up…the graphic styles panel,…which is usually paired with the appearance panel like so,…and apply the one for the river that we made…at the beginning of the chapter.…
So if I target the river and click on that…then it will update, and depending on what…color you chose for yours it may be…exactly the same at the moment…because it's a very simple, basic appearance.…But we're going to modify it somewhat.…So let's go to the appearance panel here,…and we'll add a new fill by clicking that icon…down at the bottom of the appearance panel.…And then we'll click to access the swatches in place…and go down to the bottom left-hand corner…of that swatches panel and click the loader.…
