Image sampler with ellipses

Is there a way to use ellipses with image sampler? Ideally I’d like to set an angle orientation for them.

This is best work around I’ve come up with.

wherever you’re creating a circle from a point you should be able to draw an ellipse…

did you try the ellipse component?

I’ve tried that as well. The issue is rotating them. I can’t figure out how to do that without skewing the pattern. I’d like to generate circle and ellipse patterns sharing the same grid alignment. Then layer both and delete sections to generate added visual interest.

what do you mean? …if you have a grid of points, and you make a circle or an ellipse or a rectangle from the same grid of points, then they’re all sharing the same grid at the same location(s).

or are you referring to having them aligned to the same plane at each point?
something like this?

Thank you so much. I managed to splice your file into my image sampler. You did break my brain in the process. I also realized I’m going to need 64 gb of ram for 3950x build. I owe you big time.
