Using Blends

Blends create a specific number of intermediate objects (or steps) between two selected objects. You can use a blend to quickly create multiple copies of the same object or to blend two objects together to create a morph. Blends can also be blended together to create multiple blends. Using multiple blends, you can create highlights and make objects sparkle.

To blend two objects together:

1.
Use the Pick Tool to select the two objects you want to blend (Figure 15.11).

Figure 15.11. Select the two objects to be blended.


2.
Select the Interactive Blend Tool from the toolbox (Figure 15.12).

Figure 15.12. Select the Interactive Blend Tool from the toolbox.


3.
Click the first object and drag over to the second object.

A dashed line separated by two white boxes appears.

4.
Release the mouse button.

The blend steps appear between the two objects (Figure 15.13).
