This is a great tutorial. I know you could use custom shapes but I didn't quite understand how. Great job Serge! When will this DVD be available?

Thanks John, Ken,

Glad you find the tut useful. I think the DVD should be available the next two weeks as it only needs to be printed by the Cow.

Salut.
Serge

Awesome news on the DVD. Did the tutorial then ran over to your site, started searching everywhere trying to find the DVD so I could get a copy. Took me a bit to figure out it wasn't out yet, but I'm a bit slow, if I was smarter I'd be a producer instead of editor.

Salut.

Hi shogun,

custom edges are often applied to a very small filled circle you create in an Illustrator document. Make it very small.

Bring that circle into Invigorator and apply the custom edge to it.

Does this help?

Jon

Jon, thanks for answering this one. It's weird but I answered the same 2H ago and can't see my post.
Anyway, adding to Jon's explanation, you can find the Circle_Sphere file in the ai subfolder once you download the project files.

Salut.
Serge

I have created a custom edge in illustrator, then save the project. When I click the reload custom edges button, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong. My custom edge won't come up. I even saved a new project, and moved the old one to a different location, and Zaxwerks still reads the old one. Then I purged the RAM, that didn't help either. Help!!!

Hi,

You must be using Invigorator 4.5.

Make sure you're modifying the Custom Edges folder in the
My Documents/Zaxwerks/Invigorator" folder, not the installation folder as it used to be.

Salut,
Serge
