    Use a script next time, holy shit, it’s like you’re talking to someone at your desk at work.

      I think it was plain and simple because Pete is talking in a strait forward way. No technical garbage that leaves questions. If you don’t like how Pete SHOWS US A FREE EDUCATIONAL TUTORIAL, don’t watch his tutorials or come to this site.

    Hey Pete, very nice tutorial.
    One question, though: I try and try to do the pathfinder command on the “o” (minus front, right?), but it won’t work. s this a new feature in CS6, or is there a preference I have not turned on?

    Thanks in advance
