Does work very well. Thank you!

Just as I finished this, I realized that the spiral goes in one direction only. Could an option be added so it turns in two directions (clockwise or counterclockwise)?

 

The objects start large at the edges and get smaller toward the center. Can the opposite be donne?

Hi Eli, that will certainly get some attention. :)

 

Open Droste and slide Inner Radius about halfway or more to the right and keep the Inverse Transparency checked. That will give the opposite curl

 

Have fun.

Hello doughty, and thanks for the tip. For some reason I love repetitions, tiles and symmetry. It is better than eating chocolate and I do eat lots of it. :)  And being able to do something with just about any image and never go wrong and not having to deal with math (  :mrred: ) Drost just makes me crazy! happy-smiley01.gif

Oh my word! This reminds me something out of a Salvador Dali piece.

 

Would be nice for surrealists out there.

 

You could make spirals from flowers, seashells or galaxies with this...

Version 1.1 posted.

 

This plugin had been using the MathNet.Iridium library for the Complex struct.

However, the Complex struct was added to the .NET Framework some time after @PJayTycy initially created this plugin.

 

I have therefore removed the dependency of the MathNet.Iridium.dll file.  After you've updated the plugin, you can delete that file from your Effect folder.
