Chrome Studded Sphere - I recently had occasion to create a studded sphere for an image I was drawing. I used an old technique which you older users will be familiar with involving the use of the Mold Tool and edited Circular envelopes. I then took advantage of Xtreme's new Live Effects Tool to apply the Eye Candy 4000 Chrome effect. And I even found a way to expedite object selection using the Name Gallery. This tutorial should be appropriate for users of all levels. New users will get a good tour of Extreme and old users can reacquaint themselves with some old and some new techniques.

The animation above was created with Xara Modules Cross Fade Effect which shows the sequence this tutorial will take. Xara Modules are a series of Java Scripted effects that are easy to use and inexpensive to add to your toolbox of effects.
