Wave Layout

1) General Information

  • Objects will positioned along a calculated sine wave.
  • Position for each object will be calculated by their center point.
  • Order of objects is defined by sublayers from top to down.
    If you need to change the order please change the sublayers accordingly.
  • The units will be taken from your document settings. If your document has pixels as units than a value of 10 applies 10 pixels.
    If you have inches than gutter width of 10 is 10 inches….you get it.
  • Please check the walkthrough video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gPVciO5MK8&

2) Period

  • The size of a single wave cycle until it repeats.

3) Amplitude

  • Amplitude is the height above and below a zero line (reference line). If the amplitude is set to 50 the height of the complete wave will be 100 (from -50 to 50).
  • If you need a complete wave height of  200 than you have to set the amplitude to 100 (half the height).

4) Distance

  • Distance between the center points of each art object.

5) Start Angle

  • Start Angle defines at which point the first art object is positioned. Accordingly all other art objects will be set.
  • The best way to watch its effect is to press the up arrow for a longer period. The value will increment and you can watch the arrangement.

6) Position

  • Optional value that defines the x and y value where the wave arrangement starts.
  • This is independent from the Start Angle.
