How can I make an Ellipse with gradient on separated layer, and remove everything, which is not in shape, located on another layer?
I will describe it on a schema, like I do this in Photoshop (example):
5) Then I click delete on a gradient layer - and gradient, that is outside my shape (text) - is removed. As result I have a nice text, with a good gradient, that will not cause any issues, if I change my background.
And that's the problem with AI. How can i do the same in Adobe Illustrator? For example I have such two objects on two layers, and want to add a gradient on both of them (ellipse), and later cut everything in this gradient, that is outside my layer. Is it possible to do? And how?
