Vector Scribe Illustrator Plugin

I’m excited to introduce to you a new plugin suite for Adobe Illustrator, VectorScribe by Astute Graphics.

VectorScribe fills the gaps in Illustrator’s toolbox. These tools give you intuitive yet precise control over your points, paths and shapes—without creating Effects or file incompatibilities across versions of Illustrator. VectorScribe lets you work with your vectors instead of around them.

I’ll go into detail about each tool in the suite later, but in the meantime have a look at some videos and check out the free 7 day trial.

Full disclosure: I was a volunteer beta tester for this software and received a complimentary copy.

  1. This is really awesome! I’ve been wishing for a way to scale multiple objects at once from different scaling points for a long time and it looks like this can do it (around 4:13 on the video). Thanks for the link, James! Does this only work for CS5 or can it work with CS4 as well?

  2. @Steven: That looks like the dynamic shapes tool. I could be wrong, but I think you can only do that to dynamic shapes (ie. not arbitrary artwork).

    Compatible with CS3-5
