Hi, trying to use Free Transform with a Smart Object created with Illustrator I noticed that I can't deform it without being tied to the aspect ratio as I can do it with Smart Objects created directly in Photoshop. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to solve this problem?
Thank a lot for your help!
Adobe Photoshop Version: 23.3.2
Operating System: MacOS Monterey 12.4
Chip: Apple M1 Pro
Built-in memory: 32 GB
Please post meaningful screenshots.
»Maintain aspect ratio« should apply equally to Vector Smart Objects and Pixel Smart Objects.
But Vector Smart Objects can not be Warped, the work-around being to convert them to Smart Objects.
Yeah, perspectival transformation is not applicable for Vector Smart Objects, either.
Convert the Vector Smart Object to a Smart Object.
To convert a Vector Smart Object to a Smart Object first I have to rasterize it and then convert it to a Smart Object. If I do so I lose the possibility of editing it directly on illustrator and it would not be practical.
Is there a way to do this while maintaining the connection with illustrator?

What gave you that idea?
Just convert the Vector Smart Object to a Smart Object already.
Edit: To edit the vector content in Illustrator you need to open the SO, then open the Vector SO contained within it. Obviously more convoluted but still …
When creating a Smart Object by invoking »Convert to Smart Object« the resulting SO is a psb-file and it can contain pixel Layers, Adjustment Layers etc.
That includes Smart Objects, no matter whether they be pixel or vector.
So »wrapping« a Vector SO in a »plain« SO is no problem.
If the SO containing the Vector SO gets upscaled pixelation can become noticable, but that can be addressed by increasing the SO’s Resolution.
