Please see attached Adobe Illustrator file (CC 2019)
I have an image that includes an alpha channel. I want to bevel only the area that is NOT the alpha channel.
Specifically it is an arm that I want to give a slight bevel around the edges. I tried 3d effect but that incorporates a grey "box' as a part of the effect.
I might also want to include a drop shadow -- but only around the edges of the arm -- not the square alpha channel.
So I need to isolate the arm from its alpha channel.
Hopefully it's probably a pretty simple solution -and the attached Illustrator file should make things clear....
