I'm designing a template for product packaging. While designing, I'd like to have the layout as it would be printed out flat, but I'd also like to have different 'views' (front, back, bottom, etc) so that they can be easily show to other people.
I'd like to do this with a transform so that I won't accidentally have any differences between the layout and the views.
Here is what I'm trying to achieve: http://imgur.com/a/3Ponj#0
First I apply the transform effect to the "Original" (rotate, move horizontally and vertically) (image 2)
Then I add a compound clipping mask so that the "C" panel isn't shown in the view I just made (image 3)
So far so good. When I try to add another transform effect is where the problem arises (image 4)
As you can see, the second transform is including everything from the first transform. Is there a way around this? Or maybe a better way of doing what I'm trying to achieve? I am using AI CS5.5.
