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'...
