Repeating shape on a circular path.

Recommended Posts

Typo at 50s: “Duplicate you shape” instead of “Duplicate your shape”. And at 1m: “ammount” instead of “amount”.

Also at 1m, you say “divide 360 by the number of shapes you want”, but instead of calculating 360/12 yourself and typing in 30 (as shown in the video) you can simply type in 360/12 and let the app do the calculation for you. This is particularly valuable for cases where 360 isn’t exactly divisible by the number of shapes.

Oh, and while I’m here: “Thank you for Watching” doesn’t need (read: shouldn’t have) a capital W.

Thanks Alfred, I really appreciate the feedback and corrections, however I don't think I can update the video on youtube without deleting it(not sure since I am pretty new to this). I will make sure I proofread my text instructions better in future videos.

BTW I love Scotland, I lived in Glasgow in the early 2000s for a year.

Great job @kx08  quick question though..if you wanted the stars to all have the same direction while duplicating, how would you go about that?  In your tutorial, the stars end up rotated in different directions but what if you wanted them all facing the same, top point up?

Thanks @Pariah73 . To be honest I can't think of an easy way to do what you are asking. The only way I can think of is after you complete the method shown at the tutorial uncheck the Show Rotation Center button and then select them one by one and set their rotation to 0 degrees in the Transform panel. If the duplicates are not many it is doable, but if there are too many duplicates it will be a nightmare.
