Chapter 6. Using Paint Tools > Painting with Gradient Inks

Painting with Gradient Inks

You can paint bitmapped artwork with a gradient, which is a blend of two colors that you select. Setting up a gradient is simple: You set the foreground color, which also is the beginning color for the blend, and then choose the gradient destination color, which is the ending color for the blend. Director automatically blends the two colors to display a range of colors in between (Figure 6.54) when you paint with a tool that can use the blend. You might want to use gradient ink to create a sunset with colors blending from red to yellow, for example.

Figure 6.54. When you use a gradient ink, you can paint or fill with a blend of colors.
