Symmetry Question, Zig-Zag Effect
on Oct 28, 2013 at 6:37:18 pm

I'm working with the Zig-Zag effect and have noticed an anomaly, or not the result I expected. The effect seems to be symmetrical except on one area of the underlying path at one anchor point. Relative and Absolute both yield a non-symmetrical result. Is there a way to get symmetry with this effect? I'm working on some snowflakes to import into After Effects and would like for them to be symmetrical.

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks, Bob

I'm willing to bet there are some subtle changes to the zig zag effect that are causing that. The easy fix is to outline the stroke and make changes to the resulting object. Also, you can create any shape and duplicate it 6 times around the center. The banner here was done that way (the little shapes and such in the background): http://weegonza.com/

Might be easier and more symmetrical.

Save early. Save often.
