Need some help with Apple Motion, converting shape?

I'm in Apple motion and have a 5 pointed star from the shapes folder and now I want to turn this 5 pointed star in to a 10 or twenty point star.

I know in After Effects this can be done with a click of a button and I thought that Motion might have the same function.

Any idea how I can do this with ease.

Thanks

I found a solution to my problem and have decided to reply to myself.

To get more star points from a shape in Motion do this:

Add filter to star shape.
Go down to Tiling, add Kaleidoscope.
Go to the filter tab in the inspector and make sure you have the Kaleidoscope filter clicked so you can make changes.

For my purpose I wanted more star points, more than 5.
Under the filter tab click Segement Angle, 14.0
Offset Angle, 38.0

This gave me a work around getting more star points for an ad that needs a sparkling star spinning for a commercial that needs the price of a consumer product for sale.

Cheers
