Make a non-raster glow in Illustrator


Question

I was wondering if it was possible to create a non-raster inner/outer glow? If so, could you please tell me how to do so.

Thanks.

I have not launched Illustrator in a while, but there's one general solution:

  1. copy your shape
  2. shrink/expand it
  3. make a flow transition of shape and color between first and second shapes
  4. color first shape fully opaque white and second fully transparent white
  5. tweak intermediate shapes count and/or colors
  6. there's your inner/outer glow :)
