Brush with feathered edge - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Hi, Is it possible with illustrator to make one of your paths be drawn with a brush similar to a photoshop brush round dot brush with a low level of hardness so that it has a feathered edge. I am using Illustrator 9.0. Is there any other options in further releases....

    Hi,

    a brush similar to a photoshop brush round dot brush with a low level
    of hardness so that it has a feathered edge. I am using Illustrator
    9.0. Is there any other options in further releases.

    Not sure of what the "book" way to do this is, but you could draw the path
    and then apply a gausian blur to it to get that feathered edge. Make sure
    you set the doent raster effects setting to a high value--it defaults to
    72 dpi...very pixelated.

    try turning the opacity down on the object if you want it to be lighter

    then go to the "effect" menu > "stylize" > "feather"
    (i think the feather option was added in version 9, so you are lucky)
