Today we worked on Lynda.com Lessons. I started Chapter 5 Lesson 1 Understanding vector paths. I am learning about Straight Curved and Closed Paths. Now I am on Lesson 2 Drawing basic lines and curves. In this you learn to use the Curvature Tool. I learned how to use the Arc Tool and the Line Segment Tool. Lesson 3 Drawing spirals so I hold down the Arc Tool click Spiral Tool. Now I am working with the Rectangle and Ellipse Tool showing different shapes.
The Ellipse is the Circle ones. The rectangle ones are the Rectangle.
These are the spirals I drew using the spiral tool. The spiral tool is extremely fun.
The straight line is the line segment tool, the complete circle one is the curvature tool, and the bent line that isn’t all the way closed is the arc tool.
Has the 3 same elements which is Path Control Handle and Anchor Points. What you will have after drawing a shape. Starting and end point that encompasses which means that the start point is the same as the end point. The difference with this one having all the elements is that the ones for closed paths make a complete shape.
This is the Curved Paths. There is anchor points again. The path is still there just curved. Then there is the Control Handle which are the little dots. The Control Handle elements let’s you move to different angles.
The Anchor Points determine where the Path will start and end. The Path is the the straight line.
