    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?
