    warp tool and/or puppet warp, perspective tool in photoshop

    wanted to keep it in vector, the warp and other one aren’t cutting it either

    The two things you want to do, are the few things Illustrator doesn’t do very well. But then its in the nature of vector files that you wouldn’t normally want to do that much too them.

    It does sound like you’re well into photoshop territory there though.

    Not sure if I’ve interpreted it right, but are you after making wavy tire tracks? You could copy a small section and paste it as text on a path… Then just muck about with the kerning til it looks like a tire track.

    You could then apply whatever bevel/emboss filter suits your needs.

    how is that possible if it’s text on a path tool and i’m trying to copy in a vector shape?

    i’ve downloaded a tyre brush tool 😀

    Apologies, I’ve just tried this and it no longer works. It used to – in the good old days of Illustrator…

    You can still do it in Indesign – you just copy a vector graphic (or anything) and paste it into a text box. You can then apply this to a path. It then treats it as text, you can kern, resize, baseline-shift with completely reckless abandon.

    cheers. I’m happy with my brush, but will give this a go too.
