Ok i made a path gave it a stroke repeated it moved its position to 0 and changed rotation on the repeater essentially a math round made of a shape. Now my question is my math round has 51 segments in it I want the inside of the stroked shapes to have a grid. So I made a precomped layer of the stroke put the grid inside of it applied a mask to the grid, but the grid doesnt repeat like the layer does for me. I ended up having to make 51 masks for it, but Im sure there has to be an easier way?

My desired effect is something like this but id rather have the grid follow the rotation as well...

You could duplicate the shape/stroke layer and change it to a fill layer, then set it up with the same parameters to make circle. Then take use that as a alpha matte for your grid layer.
