    Question CC3 - Smoothing a Fractal

    I have a big island where I've fractalized up the coastline something fierce using the Fractalize option. But it's gotten too fractal and I'd like to smooth it out again (remove some nodes I guess).

    Is there any way to do that easily in CC3?

    I don't have the original smooth coastline saved to go back to and I really don't want to have to redraw it...

    thanks for any help - teije

    Easy. Right-click on the Fractalize button and choose "Remove Nodes." Click on the object, and you'll get a remarkably helpful dialog box that says "YES." Click OK, and you'll see the landmass get reshaped. I think it removes every second node, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Thanks Midgarsomr - that sounds so obvious I'm not sure how I missed it (or maybe that's why I missed it!)

    I'll try that out
