Features

Duplication count

Duplicate selected group or layer by providing the duplication count or Looper can automatically calculate the count based on the rotation angle to form a complete circle.

Scale

Selected group or layer can be scaled by absolute value (px), proportional value (%) or at random.

Opacity

Opacity of selected group or layer can be set to update at random, increase from 0 to 100 or decrease from 100 to 0.

Rotate

Rotate selected group or layer by providing a specific rotation angle or Looper can automatically calculate the angle required based on the duplication count to form a complete circle.

Rotation angle can be incremented in a linear fashion, randomly or can be set to increment sinusoidally.

Move

Selected group or layer can be moved Horizontally, Vertically and Diagonally with a set increment value. Duplicated items can also be distributed randomly within a given dimension (width & height)

Form a grid

Duplicate the selected group or layer to form a grid. Number of columns, rows, horizontal margin and vertical margin can be manipulated. You can also alter other properties like opacity, rotate and scale to the grid elements.
