repeat radially, like sun rays?
on Sep 27, 2008 at 6:40:44 pm

Hey guys, I know there's a quick and accurate way to repeat an image around a circle, like to create cartoony sun rays, but I don't know what it is off the top of my head. Can you help out? Something like:

p.s. I'm looking to not distort the rays, like I don't want them to be thinner in the middle and wider on the outside like in this tutorial:

but rather just straight copying and pasting radially.

Thanks!

Find the exact center of your circle and mark it with guides. Then select the ray you want to copy/rotate and pick the rotate tool. Click the rotate tool once in the center of your circle. Then move your cursor to the ray, hold down the alt key to make a copy while rotating the ray where you want it. Then you can simply use Apple or Command "D" to duplicate what you just did. Keep hitting the Apple/Command "D" until you have finished the radial.

I hope that made sense.
