VinylCut 5 Software Turn a Stroke of a Shape into its Own Shape, Step by Step Video Guide

vinylcut stroke to shape

Yet another great feature which more vector graphic programs need, Stroke to Path.

I must say I have seen this feature in a few other programs, but to have it as simple and easy to use as in Vinylcut is not so common.

Video Transcript

How are you guys in today's video final cut? We've been looking at how to convert a stroke to a shape using the structure path feature. But let's start with a quick intro first. Okay, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za guys on this, we've got a variety of different subjects we do cover, and also we upload videos daily, so just keep an eye out for any new content. Otherwise, we're back in the programme here and now. Um, yeah. This is quite a handy little feature you can use. Um, I would have liked to have more programmes or vector type programmes. Had this So what you can do basically, so you can separate your stroke your outline to its own individual shape, which is quite rare to find in programmes in any case. So let's say we want to take this, um outline and turn into its own shape. There's multiple reasons why you could do this. Perhaps you like the dimensions of the size of the, um stroke rather or you want to shape. That looks like a stroke. But it's not, actually. Yeah, outline. So then, to do that, what you can do is we navigate here on top to path, and then we navigate all the way to the bottom, stroked. I'm not sure we might be able to right click as well, and then we go to path and then let's see if we have it under this mix. No. So, like many features, you'll see it will be either under on top to strike two part or if you right click. It's rather strange. I'm not sure why they would limit some features anyway. So after that, once again, so it's path on top. Yeah, the object selected and then you'll navigate down to stroke path. Now you can see without actual and shape you on the right. It's now thrown into a follow with that for us, and now we've got the heart stroke and a heart by itself. Now, with the stroke selected, we can actually move it around, and if we go to okay, just selected inside the group first and then we can move it around. And now if we go to the actual full and stroke panel, you'll see it's no longer stroke. So the stroke colour said to nun and the full colour sets a solid. Let's say you wanna make this a solid shape like this one, but with this new side. So let's say you didn't want to have just out. Then we can always do eager to the Styles Properties panel. She will be on the right, the little spanner. Then we never get to style, and we set it to black out. Once we've selected this, now you can see it's a solid shape, but a slight bit larger. So you can always put a stroke to this justice size to what you like if you need it, because there's some complex sizes and it gives you a different shape. If you do it for the stroke rather than scaling the actual object and then you can just do that. And then you can once again go to your full stroke panel and just change your colour there, which is a pretty handy. But otherwise, if we navigate here to vinyl cattle today, the programme is freely available here, just head to the downloads page. Otherwise, under softwaretraining.co.za hat's you. That's like I mentioned earlier. We've got a variety of different software to cover, and also if you're an isolated search and you're looking for anything specific. You can just go into the search option type of way. Then, uh, if you still on dry and don't find what you're looking forward, you can always go to request a training video. Then we will make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and choose.
