Is possible to automatically distort a bitmap using perspective?

    Yes, sort of.


    The way I do it is this:

    Make a rectangle the same shape as your raster image.

    Distort it (using perspective or any other method).

    Make a copy of it.

    Embed your image, select it, and with the distorted rectangle in front: Object > Envelope Distort... > Make with Top Object.

    You can't use Bitmap images - photos etc. or indeed any raster image effects  in perspective... you have to wonder what the point is... This is a half-baked feature that is wasting my time... because I spent an hour going through a tutorial trying to learn about something that is not going to work with 90% of what I do in Illustrator.... its frustrating that a potentially powerful tool like perspective grids has so many abitrary limitations.
