Does the dropshadow tool get the effect your after?
I like that gives the correct appearance but when I go to separate in corel for printing it wants to print as CMYK because of the bitmap, so it solves one problem but creats another . when I put the vector letter over the blured image it won't seperate out correctly ,but if its not over the top it will . I'm confused why. Would I need separation software to do it this way?You can get some cool effects using a combination of vector and raster images. I did this by giving my "M" a substantial outline, converting it to a bitmap, blurring the bitmap, and then pasting the original on top.
Yes and no , it works ok but I am more after what ripcord showed, but I can't seperate that out because it wants to due it as CMYK , and I can figure out why.Does the dropshadow tool get the effect your after?
No, you can separate this yourself...but in my example there's no separation necessary because it's all one color. Are you using a different color for the solid? Post a jpeg of what you're doing and I can tell you how to separate it. (This is for film output, right?)Would I need separation software to do it this way?
