Adding Vector Texture to a Clipped Fill?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

First off, I'm grateful for such a wonderful community of helpful experts. Thanks!

I'm struggling with a Sticker design - MikeW was kind enough to help me diagnose a few issues with it, and I don't want to bug him anymore! 

What I'm Trying To Do:

- I have a filled curve (logo) that I want to add Vector Texture to. Somethink like a vintage or grungy speckled look. I'm having a difficult time getting the texture to only mask to my Logo Layer. 

Can yall help? It's makin' my head hurt.

Attached is a png of the texture I'm kinda looking for, and the Designer File.

How can I take the texture (hidden layer in AF file), and apply it to just the Fralin Logo?

 

Thanks!

Hi, Sackadelic,

1.  Standard operation. Nest the texture in the logo curves.

!But, the texture is black, and so is are the logo letters. Add inverse adjustment. Then nest. Kind of works. Change blend more to add. Reduce size, duplicate, and shift position, because the texture is rather sparse. Better. But the inner glow fx on the letters over draw the nested layers. Reduce the fx.

Or, just subtract the vector texture from the vector letter logo.

See attached.

Hi @Sackadelic It takes less than a second on my Mac

@firstdefence Strange...it'll just hang there forever. I've had to 'force quit" it multiple times. 

 

I have a Macbook Pro, 2013, with Mojave. What did work was creating a new doc and performing the subtraction there, then copying and pasting back into the original.

Like firstdefence, about a second. Noticeable, but not important. Actually, I was a little surprised, considering there were about a bazillion tiny curves to be subtracted.

@Sackadelic Just wanted to point out that you have an FX on the main logo which ensures that it will be rasterized on output, so not sure if wrestling with a million little vectors is worth it.
And, if rasterization is inevitable why not consider some of the great artistic brushes in Photo (if you have it) which, imho, get you closer to the desired effect.

Otherwise, if you want to keep as many elements as possible vectors, then you might want to try and separate and isolate the FXs as their own objects.
IOW, if you create an independent object with the blur effect inside the main logo then "Fralin" itself will remain a vector.
