Thanks. I get it now. I had used a black to white gradient, but white to white gives a better feather result. What do you have the blending ink set to? On Thu, Feb 4, 2016 at 12:03 PM, Scott Rossi wrote: > Hi Howard: > > I was referring to the opacity of the inner color

OK - given that an image is involved (I think I missed that bit) and assuming you are feathering to a solid background colour, the best result that I got was overlaying two identically sized transparent graphics with a one or two pixel white border and an outer glow. The second graphic has

Scott, I don't quite follow this. I made an oval graphic, set up a radial gradient with both colors set to white and made the fill color clear (is this what you mean by the inner color?—nothing shows at all if you set the opaque to false). I got a radial gradient that covered the image, but I'm

Hi Howard: I was referring to the opacity of the inner color stop of the gradient. Use two colors in the radial gradient, such as white to white, and set the opacity of the color stop assigned to the inner color of the gradient to 0. The result looks like this:

Yes this is true and understood. However, I've been working with Brahmanathswami to find a solution for a transparent object because, as he says, "Any inner glow or outer glow leaves a sharp edge on the object no matter what we do." (with an opaque object) He was looking for a way to feather

2016-02-03 Thread Scott Rossi
I'm guessing you guys want the final result to be rectangular and not oval-shaped. That's too bad because you could use a radial gradient using a single color (i.e. white to white) in a graphic with the inner color set to 100% transparent -- this makes a near-perfect mask but only in oval shape.

The way one *should* be able to do this is using the innerGlow effect. However, by itself, using the basic setting is not strong enough, and the spread effect is backwards (increases outward, rather than inward -- bug) so that's useless. You can achieve a feather effect using multiple objects

You need to make the group with the object wider and taller than the object with the graphic effects in order to show the graphic effects “undisturbed”. You must also set the lockLoc (Lock size & position) of the group to true. Tore Nilsen > 31. jan. 2016 kl. 10.29 skrev Phil Jimmieson

I've seen clipping of graphic effects when the object with the effect is in a group. For example I had a round rect with a drop shadow with other objects placed inside it. When I grouped them, the drop shadow became clipped. I removed the drop shadow from the rect and applied it to the group
