(This question is related to another investigation into visual techniques using gradients and noise-filters: Research: Grainy/Noisy Gradient)
I am trying to apply a
Effect -> Texture -> Grain) to a shape with a gradient as its fill color. Although this has worked with other shapes and gradients before, here the
Grain-Effect somehow is not displayed the way it usually is. It is basically not visible, the shape remains filled with a smooth gradient. Take a look at these screenshots to see what I am referring to (in this example, Shape A refers to all the other shapes of my current project on which the effect has worked without any problems).
1. Shape A and B before the application of the effect (+ their respective gradient-settings):
(Gradient Shape A)
(Gradient Shape B)
Grain-Effect settings while adding the effect to A/B:
(Adding the effect to Shape A)
(Adding the effect to Shape B)
2.2 Closer look at
Grain-Effect on Shape B:
A closer look at the shape while applying the effect reveals that some grain/noise particles are somehow still added to the shape's fill.
2.3 Shape A and B after the application of the effect:
Does anyone know why this shape/gradient is behaving this way? I would like to be able to apply the
Grain-Effect to it just the way I'm doing it to my other shapes, i.e. Shape A in the example above.
