I am follwoing a tutorial on youtube trying to make a blend effect that requires me to use Blend>Make and then Blend> Blend Options. However, I'm stuck at the "make" step, its grayed out and I have tried looking at other posts here to try out some fixes with the blend tool but nothing is working. The only thing I can do is the "blend option" but the preview is greyed out as well.
I've tried changing my artboard size and im using pixels, could that be an issue?
I've also tried expanding/make on different options but the blend option still wont work.
Another post also recomended from switching to RGB to CMYK when i did that switch it still did not work.
I'm completely stumped, please help!
Please show the layers panel
(layer open so we can see the objects. Are you sure you followed every step?
Here are my layers.
I've followed every step even down to the exact keys the guy says to press i'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.
Do not select all.
Select only the two text frames!
Didn't work... I tried doing that and also tried doing that when expanded too, nothing.
thank you though!
Show a screenshot please.
Only the two text frames in your document, both selected and with opened Layers Panel and opened menu: Object -- > Blend
Then it seems to be working now ...
Make text and frame below as group and the same for the other text.
Make sure that you are selecting the 2 groups.
Go to Object>Blend> Make
After that select the result and go to Object>Blend> Blend options to make sure that you have the desired settings.
Copy link to clipboard
You need to group the text with the black rectangle, then copy then blend.
