Default adding noise to illustrator gradients?


Is there an easy way to add noise to illustrator gradients? I'm trying to accomplish an effect similar to the airbrush look of 20s/30s posters. you can see the same effect on much of Quiznos in-store graphics too.

you can't apply that effect to vector art-only to bitmaps you've imported.

I can in AI9. Are you in RGB Mode? It won't work in CMYK.

Maybe it's changed?

Matt that is Filter>Artistic>Film Grain that you can only apply bitmaps, Effect>Artistic>Film Grain can be applied to Vector objects.

Moreover, it can be applied to grad-filled vector objects and used in conjunction with transparency. Of course it is a raster effect and will be rasterized at print time or upon export. But it's live while in the native AI do***ent.

You could get it the way you want and then rasterize it and convert it to CMYK.
