Perspective on numerous paths

I created a road with numerous paths, the image is attached below. Each section is a path/shape. I am trying to make the back of it shrnk like it is going to the back of the scene, but I can't get it too.


I have tried grouping, but that still doesnt work.

Thoughts? Thanks,

Ryan

Hi

Some effects may require compound paths to work. Select all (CTRL+A) and go to Object > compound path > make and try again...

thanks, I know now what you mean...

the answer is much easier than the warp tools. Select the 'Free Transform Tool' from the tool bar and pick a corner of the selected grouped item, then hold CTRL+ALT+SHIFT and it distorts it in perspective.

Ahhh!

I tried that and still it just adjusts the whole object and does not add perspective.

I have all those items grouped and I am using the Free Transform Tool, then hold: CTRL+ALT+SHIFT

Do I click a corner THEN hold down the keys?

Thank you for your help

Yep, when I opened your file it only had the road, so I grouped all items and selected it with the normal picker. Then I selected the FTT and picked the bottom right corner holding down the three keys.

A drag to the right created the screenshot above...

This is in CS2 I don't think they changed it in CS3 or 4 but if all fails have a look in the help file for perspective.
