    Workflow help

      Hi guys.

       

      I'm trying to come up with a technique to do the following: Draw a shape, shade it with a gradient, then rasterize leaving a vector clipping mask, edit the fill in photoshop to add texture and general tweaking.

       

      Rasterizing the shape results in and embedded image that I can't convert to link image. If I could do that the problem would be solved. I'd just rasterize to a linked image, open it in PS, do whatever, save, and AI would detect the changes and update automatically.

       

      Copy/pasting from one to the other would work, I guess, but then I'd have to fix scale and placement, worry about resolution when making the new file in photoshop and so on. There must be something more straightforward. Any ideas?

       

       

      thanks
