Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with Live Shapes in Illustrator CC, part of Illustrator: 2015 Creative Cloud Updates.
- [Voiceover] One of the biggest enhancements…to Illustrator CC 2015 this time around are the live shapes.…Now in order to show you exactly what the differences…are between the old version and the new version,…I've got the old version and the new version…installed and up on my screen.…In order to be able to tell the difference…between the two I've lightened the interface…of the old version of Illustrator CC.…So this is the old version and this is the new version.…We've got the same file open in both applications…so that way you can see exactly what the differences…are with these particular live shapes.…Now if you're not familiar with what live shapes are,…live shapes are basically a new way of drawing shapes…that was introduced into Illustrator CC 2015 last year.…
It gave you a little bit more control over…certain aspects of shapes like polygons and squares…and also the ellipse tool as well.…But with that came some things that didn't make…the appearance of the shapes look as clean…as people might have liked.…
