13.8. Transformación recursiva

13.8.1. Visión general

This filter applies a transformation recursively.

As in Unified Transform tool, this filter display a frame around the image with several kind of handles:

  • Diamonds for shearing


  • Squares for scaling horizontally or vertically.

    Escalar horizontalmente

  • Small diamonds for changing perspective, in large squares for Scaling in all directions.

and outside the frame, the mouse pointer comes with a rotation icon: click-and-drag to rotate around the pivot. This pivot is, by default, at the center of the image: click-and-drag to move it.

Estas opciones se describen en la Sección 2, “Características comunes”.

Primera iteración

This option is used when the number of iterations has been set. Then the transformation starts at the position determined by this option.

Desvanecer color

The color that will be used to fade. Default is transparency. You can change this color selecting a new color by clicking in the color swatch or using the color picker on the right.

The result of this filter can be larger than the original image. With the default Adjust option, the layer will be automatically resized as necessary when the filter is applied. With the Clip option the result will be clipped to the layer boundary.

13.8.4. Using Recursive Transform Filter

You can use this filter to create a Droste effect, 3D effects, trees.
