Directional Gradient Along Path

Directional Gradient Along Path

This is how I managed to make a “directional gradient along a path” with illustrator CS5.

It looks like this is solved with Illustrator CS6. Check out the following video.

Note that the file is a .psd. You have to open it with Photoshop and double click the “vector smart object” to edit it with Illustrator.

    Awesome site, super-great tutorials for me. I’m a old-school graphic designer who’s coming back after an accident. I’ll be back often, Thanks so much!

    • That’s great Shelley, I am glad to hear that .
      Note that there is a new tool for “directional gradient along path” in Illustrator CS6.
