If you're a FreeHand user who has been struggling to get up to speed with using Illustrator -- or if like me, you've been using the two products over the years -- you'll want to check out my latest video at Lynda.com, Migrating from FreeHand to Illustrator.
Here's the description of the title from the website:
Migrating from FreeHand to Illustrator shows how to smoothly make the transition to Illustrator, including how to create and edit vector graphics and how to use FreeHand files in Illustrator. Instructor Mordy Golding approaches the lessons from the perspective of FreeHand users who want to work in Illustrator for small or large projects. The tutorials demonstrate the basics of importing FreeHand files into Illustrator without losing detail, editing paths and changing object attributes, and using advanced creative effects. Mordy breaks down Illustrator-specific tools using FreeHand terminology to make the switch as seamless as possible. Exercise files accompany this tutorial.
I hope this video will be of help to those who are either currently making the move from one app to the other, or who are contemplating using Illustrator as well.
