The creation of complex shapes is the job of the VectorScribe plugin. In addition to learning the features of its tools, we will study the basics of 3D modeling and a few basic techniques, such as blend, work with gradients, color and gradient mesh objects. Step 1 Start this tutorial creating a spool shape on which the film will be rolled. Such complex shapes are easy to create using the VectorScribe plugin.
The two programs have some similar features, but they are geared towards different aspects of Desktop Publishing. Many of the tools and graphical elements in the user interface of the two programs are similar.
Many functions are similar. Printers who accept InDesign files will accept Adobe Illustrator files too. Illustrator and InDesign have two different purposes. While it is true that one can design an entire flyer in Illustrator and give to a printer to get it reproduced, there are things that Illustrator cannot do, when we talk about laying out a piece of literature.
The first problem arises when one tries to design a multi-page document. Illustrator can only deal with one page at the time. That means one file for each page.
Then you start copying and pasting elements in each document, making sure they are all exactly on the same spot, and if a graphic element is going to run through a spread of two or more pages, then you will really start having a hard time.
Imagine doing all this for a publication with pages.
InDesign has also other tools that aid the designer in his workflow. It has preflight tools that help the designer see if all the elements of the document are as they should be for offset printing. You can easily check which images are CMYK and which ones are RGB without having to open all of them in Photoshop or some other graphics editing program to find out.
You also have a packaging function, which allows you to collect all the files needed for a publication, flyer and so on, in one place.
That is images, fonts and obviously the InDesign file. InDesign gives you a better control over how to place external images withing an InDesign document and treats clipping paths differently from Illustrator. The tools in the Tools palette of the two programs are different, as well as other functions.
InDesign has tools that allows you to do basic editing, such as the Line tool, Shape tools, Scissors Tools and so on. However when we talk about graphics editing Illustrator is way superior to InDesign.
This is because Illustrator is designed to handle graphics, particularly vector graphics. Illustrator as an array of tools that allow you to do all sorts of things with graphics.
It has filters, even 3D options. It is much superior than InDesign in that regard. You would be importing graphics you have made in Illustrator, or Photoshop or what have you, into InDesign.
InDesign is what brings everything else together and what will give you the final result. As I said at the beginning, the difference between InDesign and Illustrator is in their purpose and, conesequently, they were developed with different focus.
Fri, 30 September at Hurts to look at and you are throwing up all over the user with all that is going on with each page.
