How to create a fading effect on the border of an object, with illustrator


Imagine I have a black disc. I would like to create a gradient around the disc, whose value is white 100% opacity on the border of the disc and white 0% opacity at the end of the gradient.

Now, replace the disc with any other object : I want to do something similar.

Is it possible ?

If you want to fade your object into another colour or background, you can use the Feather tool.

Go to Effect > Stylize > Feather and then play around with the distance, opacity and transparency until you're happy with the result.

Hope this helps.
