Can i create a gradient that follows a path?

Recommended Posts

oh yes thank you... but now i found that it gets rasterised when i export. is there no way to create what i want without rasterising?

i need to create what is done using the Illustrator Gradient along stroke property

You used the vector brush method, right? the problem is that it gets rasterised

the direct linear gradient method doesn't work for other scenarios when i want the gradient to follow a path

for eg, here if i want one end to be green and the other end to be red

Yes and unfortunately the brush being made from a bitmap will always be rasterized on export, AD can't make pure vector brushes.

but this works for this situation only, right :(

for the s i sent ^^, i guess there's no vector workaround unless AD adds that feature

Thanks for the all the replies

No, this isn't possible at the moment unless you go to the trouble of making a gradient texture to use in a vector brush... We have much grander plans when it comes to gradients and I'm not prepared to mention what it is right now because it won't be as much fun when we do the big reveal in the future if you already knew what was coming! ;)

So im here 4 years later needing high definition gradient along the path and if i get it right those "grander plans when it comes to gradients" are still just on paper somewhere archived in basement or is it finally comming in reasonably near feature or it was completely rejected somewhere in the process? :)
