    gradient curve

    inquestflash Level 1

      hello forumers.

       

      is there a way to get a gradient to follow a curve?i was in observing these shiney poles and i was trying to figure out a way to do it in illustrator.

       

      figure a shows a curved pole but the shines go horizontly 90degrees and does not look realistic.

       

      figure b is what im after trying to make the gradient follow the arrow direction.

       

       

      figure c is my bad attempt to make it seem like shines are following the curved pole.

       

      thank you.adobe forum.jpg
