I’m tyring to apply a feather to a path, but I only one it applied on one area of the path.
I tried using the Direct Selection Tool (A) to select the anchors I wanted it applied around, that didn’t help.
Is there a way to apply a feather (Effects → Stylize → Feather) to only one part of a path?
This is just an example, not the actual paths I’m using
I want the area in the dashed red line, to gradually fade in (using a feather was my initial thought)
Unfortunately no. There is no method to apply any effect to a portion of an object. The Effect will pretty much always alter the entire object.
Using a gradient would probably be your best bet. Or an Opacity Mask.
