Design Illustrator Foundations Creating Home Page Assets The Blend Tool

I was only able to blend the two stars by doing Option > Blend > Make - but not the way Mat does it in the video - why?

Hey everyone,

I was only able to blend the two stars by doing Option > Blend > Make - but not the way Mat does it in the video (by clicking the blend tool - and then clicking on the yellow star and then the red star).

When I try to do it the way he does - nothing happens - there is simply no response when I click on either object (though it is clear that the blend tool is selected [rather than there being a circle with a line through it or something).

Why is this the case?

To see exactly what I'm referring to - you can go to 5:27 in the video.

Thanks -

You need to play around with the blend options to get like what Matt has. Try changing the specified steps and specified distance. It is on Objects > Blend > Blend Options..
