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'...

__Horizontal/Vertical smooth adjustment amount.

X/Y variation (-500,+500, dft 0)

__You could add a increment to the X/Y Wave amount.

You could use negative values to invert the waves.

Angle (-180,+180, dft 45)

__Choosing the angle allows you to start somewhere in the curse of sine...

Mode

__Quickly choose to distort by X, Y or both X & Y without changing the sliders.

Variation

Effect Mix

__This is a slider to mix the final image with the orignal image to make the effect more or less subtile.
