Episode 088 – Wrap Text Around a Globe

by heathenx

In this episode I will demonstrate how to wrap text around a three-dimensional globe in Inkscape v.046.

I used a fairly new extension from Gerrit Karius (aka G33K) called Bezier Envelope. If you want to follow along or use the Bezier Envelope for whatever future purpose then be sure to download it here. Thanks Gerrit. 🙂

Update: Gerrit has released an updated Bezier Envelope extension for Inkscape version 0.48. Grab it here. We can now use more than just 4 nodes. Here’s a sample. Thank-you Don Waters for getting in touch with Gerrit and making this happen. 🙂

Episode 060 – Live Envelope Effect

by heathenx

In this tutorial I’m going to have a look at a bit of node sculpting to simulate a live envelope effect in Inkscape 0.46.

Check out this YouTube link to see where the inspiration for this screencast came from.

Thank-you Don Waters and Richard Querin for providing insight into this nifty effect. 🙂
