Converts images from rectangular coordinates to polar coordinates, and vice versa.
Tip: This filter works well with layers containing horizontal or vertical lines, such as the Stripes or Checkerboard generators. A similar effect can be created with any image by adding the Line Screen or other related filters.
Adjust this filter using the parameter controls in the Filters Inspector:
Center: Sets the center point of the distortion from Polar to Rectangular or Rectangular to Polar. You can also drag the Center onscreen control in the Canvas.
Polar to Rect: Applies a Polar-to-Rectangular distortion to the image. When this checkbox is deselected, a Rectangular-to-Polar distortion is applied.
Mix: Sets the percentage of the original image to be blended with the distorted image.
Publish OSC: Publishes the filter’s onscreen controls in Final Cut Pro X. For more information on creating content for use in Final Cut Pro, see Final Cut Pro templates overview.
