Chapter 10. Designing Vector Shapes > Many Paths Lead to Vector Art

Many Paths Lead to Vector Art

Neither art nor production is known for its predictability. Fortunately, the Adobe Creative Suite is designed to help make it easier to deal with changes as they arise. The Edit Original command in Adobe After Effects makes it effortless to jump back to Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator to quickly update a file.

We find that the versatility of tools like the Pen tool (as well as vector paths) make Illustrator and Photoshop worth visiting frequently. So when you create that perfect mask in Photoshop, you can paste it directly into Illustrator to apply some vector effects or import it into After Effects for animation. Throughout this chapter we’ll discuss some of the finer points of working with vectors across Illustrator, Photoshop, and After Effects for creating motion graphics (Figure 10.1).
