if i have 5 different circle, and i have them lined up, how can i fade them so that they are "in sync" when they fade, instead of individually having to modify each one?
Have you tryed grouping them together?
ok; so i grouped them together, and chose gradient, but it still faded each one
Use a mask to fade the grouped images rather than a gradient. With the group selected, choose Commands > Creative > Auto Vector Mask.
awesome, just what i was looking for; thanks!
