  1. I have never used blending for shading, but seeing those examples from rui_mac were mind opening. I had never even thought of it for that! I would typically use a mesh tool to perform that kind of shading, but the mesh tool isn't so easy to shade like those irregular shapes. I think it's great that you guys are challenging the typical way of doing things and look forward to when you release these tools
  2. +1 Sorry, but Blend Tool is essential. I was really close to purchasing AD but this is actually a deal breaker and I can't give up my CS subscription to migrate to AD until this is added. Duplicating doesn't even come close to the power of what can be done with Blend. Unless I don't understand something about how to use it properly. Have I missed something? Cheers, Robert

    Crash when exporting SVG. oops

    Hey, the beta file works! Can I trial with the beta or just when I buy?
  4. I'm trialing AD and was thinking of buying, because frankly, you guys have nailed it. But I've hit a problem that is concerning and makes my wallet shy and want to stay hidden in my pants. I thought the problem might have been an issue with my vector file which originally began in Illustrator but I can replicate the issue fairly easily. Basically 1. create a rectangle 2. Fill it with a gradient 3. Apply a transparency mask 4. Export, select SVG Boom. Closes every time. It appears to me it's not doing a happy dance about the gradient + transparency. If I make it a solid fill with transparency there is no dramas. Attached is the file that produces the problem. oops.afdesign
