Today I wanted to show how I like to use the 'LIMIT TO HEIGHT' function. As with all of the lessons so far I first drew a square vector to create the base relief. Then I used the star maker. It is simple to use. I input 5 for the number of points and then created the vector.
I selected the square vector and opened the create a relief menu. I then selected the bevel tool and the create or add to button. Then I selected the LIMIT TO HEIGHT button. I entered two values into the boxes... the base height (vertical measurement) and the overall height that the relief would be limited to. The angle of the bevel was set to 45 degrees
The result was a 45 degree bevel around the outside.
Stay tuned for more cool things in the next posts. -dan
