Have applied Twist Filter to a Vector Graphic, it applies "virtual kind" of twist effect to graphic, so far so good.
However, I am trying to solidify effect so that it is no longer "virtual", and can apply further tweaks to the graphic. The desired process would be similar to "Creating Outlines" with regard to typographical characters. That is the best I can explain it.
Thanks in advance,
Object > Expand Appearance
That worked perfectly !
