Metaball Plugin

II've made a Live Effect plug-in version of "Metaball" script that I posted years ago on my other page.

This Live Effect plug-in connects circular paths in a group with metaball-like shapes.

The difference from the script is that the effect is executed again everytime after a user edits the shape. Please try moving a path with the Direct Selection Tool after the effect was applied.

It would be more fun if this had a preview checkbox and a slider control. This is an issue in the future.

Tested with Adobe Illustrator CS3 13.0.3 / Windows XP SP3.
I think I'm not familiar enough with AI SDK and the plug-in's architecture. This is a beta software. Please use it carefully, at your own risk.

For more information, please read the included readme file.
