Would you like to give us a tutorial on how to design a folding carton use Inkscape, please ?
The DVD Software Box video that you provide above is just handle the finish 3D perspective Box. I want learn on how to create the flat box, then after finish we can print them. After that, we can glue the print out of flat box and the result will be like image at episode 37 above.
I think that sounds like a neat idea. I’ve been thinking of doing something similar for a CD- mini-jewel case CD cover. A general carton design must be neat. No, I don’t know the first thing about it. But then again, that’s never stopped me before!!
One question. In order to use the perspective tool on an object, that object has to be a path. The DVD logo and your own logo for the DVD box, are they paths and not bitmaps? Especially your logo looks like a bitmap to me.
Thanks for these great tutorials!
I tried to do this in Inkscape 0.46 but the perspective effect doesn’t work as expected. I don’t know why, but the gradients are not transformed with the paths, so I have to readjust the gradients after applying the perspective effect. This is very frustrating when working with complex artwork. Any idea for a workaround?
@Viktor – Check under File->Inkscape Preferences. Under the Transforms section there are a series of checkboxes.. make sure ‘Transform Gradients’ is checked off. I have all 4 options checked off. Let us know if that helped. Glad you like the screencasts. 🙂
Tried that, but it didn’t help. I checked it on Windows XP and Ubuntu Hardy as well, the result was the same, the gradient stays at its original location. Any suggestion how to do perspective on paths with gradients properly?
Sometimes when I have issues with the perspective effect I ungroup and regroup my paths (if it’s a group of paths). Or even sometimes ungrouping, duplicating and regrouping (to create a new set of paths) sometimes helps.
Failing that, I highly recommend joining up over at http://inkscapeforum.com and asking there. You’ll likely get a lot more eyeballs on the problem over there and might find someone with similar issues.
not sure if you read back this far or not, but was doing something similar, but having trouble blurring a line from the bezier tool as shown in this tutorial. Using 0.47. The selection appears to grow as if it is blurring it, but doesn’t show the effect. Just me?
