Creation (Andrew's Vector Plugins Vol 01) Plugin set contains plugins for creation of paths.

Installation of Plugins Please place the GX01_Abstract.aip, GX01_Duplication.aip, GX01_RoundDuplication.aip, GX01_Circled.aip, GX01_Duplicator.aip files in the c:\program files\adobe\illustrator CS\plug-ins folder [pc Illustrator 速 CS] or c:\program files\adobe\illustrator 10\plug-ins [pc illustrator 10] or CS1 or CS2 equivalent For the mac, please place the GX01_Abstract, GX01_Duplication, GX001_RoundDuplication, GX01_Circled, GX01_Duplicator files in HD:Applications:Adobe Illustrator CS:plug-ins [mac Illustrator 速CS] or HD:Applications:Adobe Illustrator 10:plug-ins [mac Illustrator 10] or CS1 or CS2 equivalent

Initial Use of plugins Please access via the filters menu of Illustrator 速 via the <AVP Paths> menu. The plugins appear in the path's menu as they require paths to create, without a path selected, the menu items will be faded. The plugins use a path or selected paths or images or symbols or other items. The abstract plugin requires no path but perhaps some initial setup of fill or stroke or both as required and appears in the AVP Create.

Applications support macOSX .2 .3 98 ME NT XP Ilustrator 速10 CS1 CS2

Abstract Plugin to create kris crossing lines. The result can be just a set of lines, great for a background, or perhaps a stained glass window, or a very abstract effect. Split into two dialogs 'Abstract' dialog 'Number of lines': Creates a certain number of lines. The first point is created at a random position within the document and the end point is created up to the jitter distance entered (or less) and limited to the document (if set) and the next line is created from this position and so on. The lines cross over previously created lines (or not, randomly)

Plugin set

'Number of line sets': Instead of creating one set of lines, multiple line sets can be created. The start position for each set is created randomly within the document. The lines can be individually colored (though the individual lines within the set cannot) as well as random fills, etc. Combined with opacity and other settings, many unusual abstract designs can be created (if you wish, you can also release to layers via the layers palette) each path set, and created an animated random abstract line design.

'Jitter distance': This is the maximum distance in points from point to point. If set to 100,100 then the next point will be any distance in either direction up to 100 points in the horizontal and 100 points in the vertical. If you wish to create a thin or flattened line set, set the jitter distance of one direction to a low value.

Plugin set

'Settings' dialog 'Limit to document': By default, the points are created only within the current defined document width and height (so if you create 500 points, all 500 points will be either inside the document space and more likely all around the edge of the document). If not set, the lines can sprawl outwards randomly to fill the entire work space.

Plugin set

'Fill [R]': If there is no fill, this will not work (also the document color space has to match the actual fill color mode). If there is a fill, then the fill for a created set will be randomly generated based on the current color space (RGB etc)

'Fill swatch [R]': This supersedes the basic fill. If set, and there is a fill, the fills are taken from the current swatch palette. If you want to create a design filled with gradients only, remove all the swatches such as patterns or basic color fills, and leave only gradients; or if you want a design filled with blues, fill the swatches palette with only blue swatches

file:///C|/...177G141P17T23027951D7ADC88/Andrew.Plugins.Volume.1.v1.5.for.Adobe.Illustrator/Documentation/GX01 Documentation.htm[6/5/2011 5:40:21 PM]


Plugin set

'Stroke [R]': The basic functionality of the plugin is design based around a stroke (though if no stroke is set, randomization will be ignored). This creates random stroked colored lines. Works best, probably, without a fill set.

'Stroke swatch [R]': Supersedes the stroke setting. Randomly selects swatches from the swatches palette. To fill the lines with reddish lines, add red swatches to the swatches palette and remove all non-red swatches. Gradient swatches cannot be used (sadly) as a swatch for strokes.

Plugin set

'Opacity [R]': Set the lines to variable opacity

'Width [R]': Vary the line width (or weight) from 0 to the pre-plugin line width (randomly). If you wish to have a wider variation of line widths, set the line width before starting the plugin to a large value (20 pts or so)

Plugin set

Circled Plugin to create a basic ring of a selected path or paths or images or symbols (basic version of round duplication) 'Circle' dialog 'Number of circles': The number of circles (or rings of items) to create. For a basic circular design, set to 1.

'Items per circle': Number of items or copies of the original selected path to create per circle.

Plugin set

'Variance' dialog 'Gap between circles' options: Instead of just applying a basic gap between circles, the circle can be randomly placed, accumulated, and more.

'Settings dialog' 'Fill [R]: The paths are filled with random colors (this odes depend on the path color type / mode as well as document color mode and there being a fill in the first place)

Plugin set

'Delete original': The plugin, sadly, leaves the original path displayed during the preview (it needs the path). The path can be deleted on exit (the default), if required. 'Warp [R]': The newly created paths are warped using a variety of random envelopes and envelope settings.

'Alternate': Alternate paths are doubled in size. Creates unusual and interesting path designs.

Plugin set

'Selected center': The scaling for the plugin is applied to the center of all the selected paths instead of individual paths. Depends on the path setup, especially if you are applying to a row of text say

'Delete original': The original path is deleted by default, it can be kept by setting the checkbox to off 'Place above': All the paths are created above the previous paths. You can reverse this and place all the new paths beneath the previous path (which might or might not be useful for your design)

file:///C|/...177G141P17T23027951D7ADC88/Andrew.Plugins.Volume.1.v1.5.for.Adobe.Illustrator/Documentation/GX01 Documentation.htm[6/5/2011 5:40:21 PM]


Plugin set

'Link': By default, the link is ON and all the rows and columns data is linked. Turn it to off, if you wish to have more rows or columns than the other

Duplicator Plugin to create a basic grid of paths (basic version of duplication - though with its own set of unique features) 'Grid' dialog 'Rows/gap': Number of rows and gap between rows

'Selected path center': Instead of scaling about the individual path center, scaling is applied to the group of selected paths (to keep everything relative)

file:///C|/...177G141P17T23027951D7ADC88/Andrew.Plugins.Volume.1.v1.5.for.Adobe.Illustrator/Documentation/GX01 Documentation.htm[6/5/2011 5:40:21 PM]


Plugin set

'User defined center': Ignored if the rotation dropdown is not set to the user defined center option, otherwise set the rotation to a different part of the document for varying dramatic path effects

'Angle': Additional rotation applied to the path about its own center, great for creating different pattern designs, even by changing a path by 10 degrees

file:///C|/...177G141P17T23027951D7ADC88/Andrew.Plugins.Volume.1.v1.5.for.Adobe.Illustrator/Documentation/GX01 Documentation.htm[6/5/2011 5:40:21 PM]


Plugin set

'Angular shift': The path's are rotated about the current rotation center and shifted, perfect for alignments

'Use supplied angle': Instead of using the calculated angle to create a set of paths, this angle is used. If 10 paths are to be created, normally these would be spaced 36 degrees apart. Use this to set the angle to 10 or 20 or greater.

file:///C|/...177G141P17T23027951D7ADC88/Andrew.Plugins.Volume.1.v1.5.for.Adobe.Illustrator/Documentation/GX01 Documentation.htm[6/5/2011 5:40:21 PM]


Plugin set

'Maximum angle (360)': By default, the entire ring or circle is used in the creation of the paths. Use this value to override this and set it to a semi circle or quarter circle.

'Apply' dialog 'Path apply': Instead of creating all the paths, gaps can be created between paths, bunching paths. The first field is the number of 'paths' to skip, the second the number of paths to create before before the next skip.
