I am new to Corel Draw, and this is my first post on the Corel Community.
I start to create a Star shape, with a Power Clip of a nice Sea Texture, and then when i want to add a Bevel effect, the program didn't allow me to do that. so i try to flip, and too do first the Bevel and then to doo the Power Clip, but now the program didnt let me to do the Power clip, its poping up a message that i can’t do that to this kind of object.
So, My question is:
Does Corel Draw not allow to do both? or maybe it's a setting or a kind of bug?
Please help me to figger it out. [in other vector programs i fond this kinds of effects to work instantly and properly)
this is no problem - draw two star, one for powerclip, second above - for bevel. Apply small transparency for star with bevel. You got nice star with bevel and sea texture
Thanks Shark. but No, this is not a good idea. i have now to play with the colours and the the transparency... i need someting instant!
Maybe in the 2019 version...

Sorry, there's not "instant" effect like this.
On CorelDRAW, you can create the effect using two objects, the star with bevel and the powerclip (a lens on multiply mode could create the eeffect you want). Or you can use PhotoPaint for create this kind of effect. But still, there's not "instant" effect.

Sory, but i can't understand that. A vector progrom like Corel Draw, without normal 3D effects?
If i want to get someting nice, i have to loss my vector, and do it in Photo Phaint as an image?
Ronny Axelsson said:Affinity Designer can do it and is a great program in many ways, but I suppose you want to do more than beveled stars and you will probably find a lot of other limitations in Designer too, or in any other software for that matter.
Only "Affinity" has the ability to program an Aplication with great 3D effects, and "Corel" not?
It can be that Corel Draw has a lot of other Amazing things what you will not find in "designer" or in "illustrator", but 3D effects is a Most in a Vector program. its like a Coffee machine, with no Coffee beens...
and no, my plan is not, to use Draw only for "beveled stars"... but 3D effects i need not only for stars and shaps, and i am not the only one.
In other graphic aplications, we have the ability to do "instantly" (also for "vector", and with very wide Flexibility):
Please add ALL this effects to Corel Draw.
All these effects are already present in CorelDRAW from earlier versions
Draw star, use it as powerclip for image, then convert powerclip to bitmap (with transparent backgr.), go to Bimaps-3D Effects-Emboss... and you can get what you want. Instant. Almost.
Sory, but in a Vector aplication like Corel Draw, i dont have to lost my VECTOR to create a 3D effect.
Take a look in other aplications, and you will find that im not talking now of things that are not possible to generate in a 2018 / 2019 vector aplication.
so, now i just ask that they shold add this prime features in the next version (and i found that i am not the first one to ask that).
