A layer repeater for After Effects
The Spoke After Effects repeater allows you to duplicate and repeat any layer, not just shape layers, around a circle in After Effects. It's the circular layer repeater After Effects has been calling out for.
How it works
Select any After Effects layer you'd like to repeat, choose the number of copies you need, and hit go!
The script will create the specified number of copies and arrange them in a circle pattern relative to the original layer - this means when you change the position of the original layer, the other layers will automatically update to stay in a circle.
The Spoke script also adds a centre point null which allows you to dynamically change the position of the centre of the circle.
Link or Unlink the values
The radial repeater script also has an option to either link or unlink the rotation, opacity, anchor point, and scale values to the original layer depending on what you'd like to create.
Linking the values means that each duplicate will look exactly like the original, whereas leaving the values unlinked allows you to customise each copy individually.
Experiment with linking and unlinking the values to produce different results!
