Bi-product of Rounding Corners!

Apr 24, 2012 2:43 PM

Hey guys,

 

"Effect > Stylize > Round Corners" seems to straighten off the curvature of the sides of my circle.

Is there any other way of rounding corners without this unwated effect?!

 

(The below shape had its corners rounded with the minimal value of 5pt)

    Josh,

     

    I hope the link works properly this time:

    It should say:

     

    Scripts for Adobe Illustrator CS (10 thru CS5) (JavaScript)

    Not everything can be accomplished with shortcuts. Some things take practice and manual alteration to accomplish.

    The built in Round Corner effect in Illustrator will preserve the shapes if you add anchor points near the corners of the rounded curves - basically limiting the radius manually. Another thumbs down for the built in capabilities.

    Yeah, Adode Illusrator really needs a proper built-in corner fillet/scallop/chamfer filter with numerical entry. Some rival applications have had it for quite a while.

    Yes, sign industry apps like FlexiSign have had the capability for many years; even long dead apps like CASmate did it. Even CorelDRAW has a filter for doing corner fillets, scallops and chamfers. You could apply the effect to specific corners in addition to altering all the corners on an object.

    Bob, you can do it now in Illustrator, although you have to use a 3rd-party plug-in. Not free, but if you do a lot of corners, it pays for itself rather quickly.

    I think the corner fillet/chamfer/scallop function is a basic enough feature to warrant inclusion in the stock Illustrator tool set.

     

    Considering Illustrator CS6 is going 64-bit, I'm leery of paying money for any existing Illustrator plug-ins right now. A lot of plug-ins will probably have to be recompiled for 64-bit operation in order to work. Existing plug-ins might survive if CS6 includes both 32-bit and 64-bit variants of Illustrator.
