MadJik Posted July 18, 2010 Share Posted July 18, 2010 Distorting Mirror Effect Plugin What's this? As I'm still playing with sinus & co. formulas, I've created some effect similar to the distorting mirror you could have in some fair. Original model from http://www.photo-libre.fr This example doesn't show all the possibilities of this effect, you'll have to test it by yourself... How does it works? That uses some function sine to apply a horizontal or vertical distortion like a simple or combined distorting mirror. While moving, if the image leaves the area on a side then it reappears on the opposite side. TIP: Enlarge the canvas with a transparent border to keep the image 'inside'...
