I need to convert this graphic starburst http://www.theinnerpath.tv/
into a vector image. Is there an easy way to get the blur effect that comes off the letters? I've tried several things, but I'm stumped.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Eric

Here's the thing, Eric: Even if you do manage to reproduce that effect on an Illustrator artboard, all the blurring/feathering will be rendered as rasters anyway. Such effects only exist as pixels, regardless of the application.

Thanks John,

I'm looking more to simulate the feathering with a stenciled design somehow. I tried doing some 100 and 200 point stars, with knocked out strokes around the letters... that came close, but I couldn't control it properly around each letter. It didn't have the same effect.

I'm wondering if there's an easy way to create lots of little star bursts off of each letter, that has a similar effect as the full color pixel graphic, but in a simplified black and white design.

Thanks again,
Eric

Ah, I see...sort of like a vector-based halftone pattern effect. Like you I would be at "square one" in conjuring up such a thing.

I did some experimenting with anchor point-targeted blends that might come close to producing what you want, but I'm not quite there yet, and it could get pretty complex with the serif letter forms. If I have any breakthroughs, I'll post 'em here.

That's something easily done in Photoshop, and not-so-easily-done in Illustrator. Is there a reason you must create this in Illustrator versus Photoshop?

Mostly to be able to scale it to any size. But also as a logo it needs to work in black and white, without gradients.

I had the idea of scaling each letter bigger using blend, then cutting through the different layers with a 100 point star. Might work...

That might work. It's faking the real look of a radial blur, but, that's how things are done sometimes.
