I was wondering if it was possible to create a non-raster inner/outer glow? If so, could you please tell me how to do so.
I have not launched Illustrator in a while, but there's one general solution:
You can have multiples strokes with different colors and transparency in Adobe Illustrator. Simply create multiples strokes with different opacity values, set the blending mode that fits and progressively increase the weight of the stroke.
If you want an outer glow make sure the fill is in top of the stack in the Appereance palette. If you want a inner glow make sure the strokes alignment are set to "inside" in the stroke palette and the fill is in the bottom of the stack in the appereance palette.
