    No copy and paste here ! :)
    As most of you know I have all but beat to death spiral effects .
    Well after 2 years or so of trying to get what I imagined a spiral to look like ,I have finally stumbled on how to get a spiral properly working on a mega tree or cone shaped object from a rectangular 2d grid .
    using tools like photoshop Ae illustrator and alike it is a difficult task to figure out the proper procedure to
    process a spiral in this fashion .
    By pure fluke I discovered that by increasing the width of the aspect ratio prior to rendering , this increased the depth of my effect by some means of compression that I don't fully understand.
    here are some results.
