Today I introduce you Illustrator Script which rotates a linear gradient angle of all selected objects randomly. This script was designed by Iaroslav Tabachkovsky.
Install the scripts into the following folder, for example:
For Windows: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS5\Presets\en_GB\Scripts
For Mac: Applications / Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS5\Presets\en_GB\Scripts
To demonstrate the work of the script create a couple of circles and fill them with different linear gradients with an angle of slope of 0 degrees.
Select all the objects and go to the File > Script > Random Rotate Linear Gradient.
As you can see, the angles of linear gradients have now random values. I want to underline here, before the script is applied the selected objects must be ungrouped.
I hope you’ll find some usage of this scrip in your work; you can use it for example in creation of abstract vector backgrounds.
