Cvalley has announced Xtream Path, a plug-in for Adobe Illustrator.
Xtream Path includes 36 effects and tools that simplify the drawing and editing of paths by eliminating control points and direction lines. You can edit paths where you need to, and cut down on the number of steps required to complete basic tasks.
Xtream Path will cost $139 (around £90). A demo version is available, and you can visit CValley's Flash movie page to see the plug-in in action. System requirements call for Mac OS 8.5 or Mac OS X v.10.1 or higher (with support for Mac OS X v.10.3 Panther) and Adobe Illustrator 8.0 or higher.
