I applied the twirl effect to this image, but since it's not really working the way I want it to because of the way the storm is angled in the picture. I've used the swirl effect on a few other pictures and it worked great - but they were top down radar images. I attempted to use an adjustment layer and rotate that, but that didn't work either.
Does anyone have any ideas? Surely this must be possible. Sorry if it's been asked before - this is the first time ever that I've not been able to find something by searching!
I think you would be better off making a slightly animated black & white spiral shape, with it central point being the eye of the hurricane and using that as a displacement map. If I have time later, I'll try to make an example project.
