polar array


Define the center of rotation, angle and count it will then copy and rotate based on the original distance from center. I have included images to show usage. This was based in part on Radial Copy by pkotronis but as i couldn't figure out how to use his i made a simpler one

edit: I added a layer resize to fix errors and a new script that does the same thing but creates a new layer for each rotation.

Radial Copy (True Polar Array)

Note: I accidentally posted this as a plug-in first. I've now correctly posted it as a script.

This script allows the user to select an item in the image and to create a true polar array of the selected object (think kaleidoscope as opposed to Ferris wheel seats). It is useful for creating objects that possess radial symmetry.

The user can control:
-center point of rotation
-distance from the center point to the objects in the array
-starting angle for the rotation
-angle between each copied object
-number of objects in the final array.
