tutorial tuesday

I had asked last week for tutorial requests!  I received one request on making and using paths.  I may end up making another tutorial about paths because they are SOOO useful.  This is a tutorial that teaches you how to create paths out of shapes and selection tools for creating dynamic text areas and brushing area thingies.  So watch the tutorial below and see how using paths can help you!

And this is where I try to get you to BUY MY THINGS. 😛  Seriously though, I have an older kit up today at P&Co for 50% off called Spooked.  It is a bit dark for a Halloween kit but I like it!  It is only $3 through Thursday.  Also.. the 33% off sale is still on just use the code: mommyish33 at P&Co.


Thanks for this tutorial. I learned more than just paths from it. Very helpful, I’ll have to watch it a few more times!

You are so cute! I enjoyed your video tutorial, even subscribed to your YouTube channel! Thank you for the awesome tips and techniques!


Hi I was thinking about the lithgs. I think that in the expreso setup is this: For me works fine.1. create a cylinder and then create an area light. (put the cilynder in rotaion H=-90ba2. In the light details, select and object. Put the cylinder as the object.3. Put the light as visible.4. Create an xpresso tag.5. Put the cylinder object as the fisrts object and select global rotation , H rotation in the output.6. Creates a range mapper. connect with the cylinder output.7. In the properties of the mapper put input units: degrees output units user defined.Now:input lower -90bainput upper: 0baoutput lower 0%output upper 100% (or whatever you want, this is gonna be thee intensity for the light)8. finally, put the light in the expresso manager, and then in the input select general>intensity. Connect with the range mapper.That works for me When you rotate the cylinder up, its gonna be more intense until reach the 0ba.Of course you need the setup for the attactor to automate the the rotation I just hope this could be helpful and of course lets see if I come close to a solution. I could post the file if someone need it.Bye .
