Modifying the intermediate objects of a blend

You can alter the appearance of a blend by adjusting the space between intermediate objects, rotating them, setting their color progression, or accelerate their fills and outlines, you alter the appearance.

You can control the spacing between intermediate objects by setting the distance between objects, or by specifying the number of intermediate objects in the blend. When you're working with a blend that's fit to a path, you can specify the exact distance between the intermediate objects.

When you rotate a blend's intermediate objects, the rotation progresses counterclockwise around the centers of rotation of the intermediate objects. Looping, rotates the intermediate objects around a point halfway between the objects' centers of rotation.

By setting the color progression of intermediate objects, you determine the way outline and fill colors progress between the start and end objects of a blend. CorelDRAW provides a straight, clockwise, or counterclockwise path through the color spectrum.

In a basic blend, the intermediate objects are spaced evenly as they progress between the start and end objects. Similarly, the intermediate colors progress evenly between these objects. You can change object and color progressions so that they appear to accelerate toward the start or end object. For example when you accelerate objects in one direction, they get closer together as they progress in that direction.

By mapping nodes, you control the way the start object is transformed into the end object. As a result, you have greater control over the appearance of the intermediate blend objects.
