I have several "confetti" images that I want to take the design and create a method so I can replicate it as a fill I can apply to shapes/outlines.
Here's an example of the source image.
I'm not set on Illustrator or Photoshop, pretty much whatever I can use to do this efficiently.
I'm trying to avoid manually cutting out each circle.
The issue is setting-up the initial pattern so it has layering and the color-variation.
I've looked into some Illustrator scripts to randomize fill color and randomize ordering but this means that I'd have to extract each color circle and save it as a symbol for it to be of use.
I was considering using Jongware's CircleFill script to generate circles and then apply styles but then there is the issue of ordering and layering plus color randomness to account for.
I have access to Astute plugins now but I'm VERY new to learning them so I'm not sure if any of them can help me.
- I've started tinkering with "seed pods" of circles that I apply a random transform each command to. My issue now is that I have to create a lot of variations. Is there a more efficient way to create these and then splice them all together?
