Quick Resource

Dec 30, 2012 8:15 AM

I have the Production Premium package, which includes Illustrator, and i think i can make some good use of it,


when i get time to learn it.   Besides Premiere Pro from day to day, i had a Photoshop class, and now am in


the middle of an After Effects class,  but all i need from illustrator right now is a nice rendition of a guitar


chord diagram, one with about 6 or 7 frets, and another with about 24 frets.   Would appreciate some


pointers on just creating those two items, or a pointer to any resource that may have those allready


put together.   So far in Illistrator i can draw a straight line, but of course, i need the complete diagram yesterday

    You might want to show an example of what you need to achieve.

    Take the rectangular grid tool in Illustrator to draw the grid. Readthe documentation on how to use it and how to edit its options. 7d0100196cbc5f-6265a.html


    Then you can add the circles with the ellipse tool.


    I assume you want to animate this in AfterEffects? Then you might consider adding the circles with its ellipse tool.

    Turn on smart guides and just draw with the rectangle tool. The smart guides will help you align all the stuff. In order to import in After Effects just save an .ai file with PDF editability turned ON.
