perspective blend

Nov 13, 2010 2:27 AM

Hi ama

zing scripters,


Here is a thing I would like for long time.  A perspective blend. Distributing lines at 90 degrees on a  line ( aa spine) with a logarithmic reduction of the space in between.


The script would ask how many lines (divisions) the user want an put anchors points accordingly in a perspective way.

Then it would trace lines at 90 degrees with the spine direction at every anchors.


The user could use the blend tool after and the scale tool..

Ignore the red grafittis on top left.

    You don't even need a script for that.


    1. Ellipse tool: Draw an ellipse.

    2. Line Tool: Draw a vertical line.

    3. Copy. PasteInFront.

    4. Select both lines. Object>Blend>Make.

    5. Add the ellipse to the selection. Object>Blend>Replace Spine. Make sure the Blend Options is set to Align to Page, not Align to Path.

    I think the point is more how to do this kind of thing via script as you have NO access to any of those methods…

    Brilliant, logarithmic blends in illustrator! Thanks guys.


    Here's image that describes JETalmage's solution:

    1. Create two lines, then use the blend tool to blend between. After making the blend, (with the blended "thing" still selcted) double click on the blend tool to bring up the blend options, and set the drop down to "specified steps".

    2. Draw a curve. Now select the blend "thing" and the curve, so everything is selected.

    3. From the main menu: Object>Blend>Replace Spine, which will replace the standard straight line normally used in a blend "thing" with your new curve.
