Req: Stretch a complex vector object along a path

Post by photoken »

Now that PL has variable width lines, the main thing I use CorelDraw or Illustrator for is to stretch a complex vector object along a path.

Both programs provide sets of vector shapes that somewhat mimic various brush and pen strokes. These shapes can be applied to a path, stretching from the beginning of the path to the end, and the general width can be set using the standard width control.

Here's an example: In PL I drew a sinusoidal line over the original image and sent that vector layer to one of those programs (don't remember which one) as a PDF. In that program I applied an "artistic" shape to the line and it came back to PL as this layer group:

Then I added various effects in PL to achieve this:
