16.26 - Polar/Rec

Quick Reference to Scripting Command
Items in CAPS are 0/1 or ranges with more options than just 0/1.
Ranges other than 0/1 are indicated by brackets, such as [0-2].


This operator may be applied directly to a Warp Layer, resulting in a geometric effect that may be removed from the underlying sublayer composite by simply zeroing out the warp or disabling that layer. In addition, the effect may be moved over the underlying sublayer composite without limit.

A visual reminder that this operator is warp-compatible is the small green dot at the upper right of its ICON in the toolbar.

Operation Example

Polar/Rec takes an image defined in rectangular coordinates and maps it to a polar form. This operation is most useful on square images, because cutoff and overextension will result from dissimilar height and width. This operation is also best used if the the image is perfectly symmetrical on the very top of the image, as they will be mapped side-by-side on a vertical line from the top center to the center of the image.
