Kalidiscope effect

Friends in the Photoshop Family:

I stumbled onto a set of steps that allowed me to merge two images and then (magically) created a new format that would spin the two images like a kalidicope effect. The images tumbled, turned, and would spin. Fascinating! I tried to do it the next day and couldn't remember how I created this magic window.

 

I did NOT cut the images. I did NOT use mirror effects. I simply put one image on top of the image in the document screen and then . . .  and then . . . I don't remember what I did next. 

 

What is this effect called? And, where can I learn how to repeat it. 

Thanks in advance.

But that would be destructive, so not prudent. 

I may have misinterpreted your description, though … 

 

If you just want to create a kaleidoscopic arrangement you could use a script.

If the two image layers being rotated and blended are smart object layer I do not  think the process would be destructive or fast and may not display well unless a refresh is added between rotations which will slow down the rotational processing. Try using a Video Time line...
