This question already has an answer here:
So I am literally a illustrator noob with literally 4 hours of experience since writing this post. I am creating a logo for my school robotics team and I wanted to make the background of the logo transparent for our team website but realized that while I can make the background of the logo transparent the objects cannot be transparent. I was wondering how can I keep the effects of the objects while still making them transparent.
Here are some images of my logo and my situation.
The first image is what I have on Ai.
This is my image converted to the pdf file, as you can probably tell I want the white parts to be transparent (sorry for the bad image on the 2nd one btw).
