When it comes to making borders and frames for cards and designs, there are a few ways to go about it.
But in today’s video we’ll be looking at how to do that with the cool Duplicate Rotated feature.

Hi there, guys. In today's video final cut, we're gonna be looking out to make a circle border using the duplicate rotated effect. Before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be fine on softwaretraining.co.za. You'll see a lot of you guys will notice. We do have a variety of from software's we cover, and also we upload training videos daily. So just by their content, otherwise, if we had back in the programme, yeah, now we're in. A previous video covered the cricket rotated effect before, but today we're gonna be looking out to create borders with So, first of all, what we're gonna need is a shape of vector shape that we can use as, um, the starting point for the border. That's what I'm gonna do is just head to my library was just under this little book with astonished. Then I'm going to navigate to the swirls under its templates. And then I'm gonna grab this one with a little hole in the middle. Yeah, it makes for a nice border. Then just move this one to the top year. So stay a little bit as all mhm and you see the colour so can nicely distinguish That's the border. Then what you gonna do with your shape selected? We're gonna go to object on top on the main menu. I mean, we navigate down until you find duplicate rotated Shook. A key for that is control ship. The MHM, now under its options, will be looking at three of them today. So the first one is total copies. It's the amount of copies, obviously. Then we're gonna be looking at rotate V offset for the vertical offset. And then we're gonna look at group duplicates. So let's start by adding one, um, extra copy. Now, what we're gonna use this copy for is kind of just set the distance between the border. So if you have graphics in the middle, you always use this. It's a reference. So then we go to rotate the offset, and we increased this number. Well, we find okay. Say I like my my border about that size. Then I will select on group duplicate. So what this will do is once that is done, creating the effect any copies you've made, or throw it all into one folder, which is in a group so that makes it easily to manage it. So on your layers panel, you won't have just loads of these little symbols. But you'll have one folder with all of them in there, so you easily move it around. And so the next what we wanna do is we wanna make copies of these shapes, so increase them out. Basically, ideally, we want all these shapes to touch each other. So when you finally cut it out, um, it is a single shape. So this is kind of like the minimum you would put if you're going for that type of border. In my case, I want this little circle to align something more than metal. So we're gonna say we've got about 14 year, okay? And now we can see on the layers panel here. If our scale is a bit bigger, we've got a duplicate. And if you open that for a whole individual shapes in there now, we're not quite done yet because as we had to go to the preview now, you'll see we still have a problem once it wants to cut. There were all these little circles overlap. It's gonna wanna cut them out as well, and that little shape there, which is gonna make a mess of the board. So what we wanna do is basically wild all these things together. Now there's two ways we can do it. The one is a destructive way. No, underwear is non destructive. So first of a destructive ways is kind of It's a more permanent way where you want to go to path, and then we go to union hold you let me show you it. Okay, Now we select that, and then we go to preview. You can see now it has fixed it. But as we go to our layers menu here, you can see it is now a single layer is no longer in a group. So if we undo this, let's say we want to do it more, um, non destructive way. Then with your layer group selected, we're gonna go to the styles panel, which will be this little spinny on the right. Click that and then you make sure while the selected under its options. Now, if we got a preview, you will notice that we have the same result as the union. But this is non destructive. So means you can still move the shapes if you want and change them, headed them and so forth more easily. Otherwise, that is it. On creating a circle border in final cut we had year to the programme is available, we are freely just head to the downloads page. Otherwise, if you guys go to softwaretraining.co.za like I mentioned the intro video, we do have a variety of different Softwares we cover. And also, if you don't want to go through the list of videos, you can always isolate your search on top. Yeah, right. Five point you're looking for and just hit a little magnifying glass. But it's still run dry, and it's no result. You always go here to request a training video, and then we will make that video for you. But otherwise thanks guys for watching and cheers.
