The Illustrator version of Path Styler Pro is a live raster effect that you can apply directly to path and text objects. The Path Styler Pro effect remains editable at all times and automatically updates when you make changes.
Spot colored bevels.
With the new deviceN raster images in Illustrator CS3 and CS4, Path Styler Pro can now preserve spot colors and create fantastic looking beveled images that are shaded with a single spot color and black. Great when you are designing logos or text artwork for two color print work.
The image to the right shows an example of a text object with a spot color and the Path Styler Pro effect applied. The resulting artwork is a deviceN raster object. More precisely, an embedded mixed ink image in NChannel format with two channels: a black channel, and a spot color channel.
Whether you are designing for print or the web, Path Styler Pro can render a high-quality raster image at any resolution so your bevels always look sharp and clean. And when you are ready to send your artwork to the printer you can easily increase the resolution using Illustrator's Document Raster Effects Settings. Path Styler Pro will automatically re-render all your style effects using the resolution and anti-alias settings you specify.
You can order Path Styler Pro for Illustrator separately for $99 or together with the Photoshop version in the Path Styler Pro Bundle for only $129, saving you $69.
Path Styler Pro works with Abobe Illustrator CS5, CS4, CS3, CS2, and CS running on a Mac or Windows system. System requirements are those that Adobe recommends for running your specific version of Illustrator. Visit the Adobe Illustrator website for the system requirements of the latest Illustrator version. Note that only Illustrator CS3, CS4, and CS5 are fully compatible with Mac OS X Leopard, so it is recommended that you only use Path Styler Pro with Illustrator CS3 or CS4 when running Leopard.
Path Styler Pro may work with older versions of Illustrator but support is not provided for these versions.
