Wet Floor Reflection plugin (ymd:100725)

Wet Floor Reflection Plugin




What's this?

This plugin is added to the menu Effects, submenu Distort.

This is a new update for the object reflection water plugin.

I've provided a user interface for the codelab created by BoltBait.

This plugin was blocked for a new release version of Paint.net.

That's why I've updated it for myself, and since then I had the agreement of BoltBait to publish it.

Many thanks to Boltbait...



Download it!

Plugin WetFloor.dll

The MadJik's All plugins package is available !




How to install

Close Paint.net


Classic version of Paint.net

Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects


Microsoft Store version of Paint.net

Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: /My Documents/paint.net App Files/Effects/

You have to adapt for your language My Documents



How does it work?

You have to have a transparent area below the object you want to reflect.

Then adjust the settings to obtain a reflection you like.

You could also fill the transparent areas you DON'T want any reflection on with the primary color.

Then the effect will replace back the primary color by transparent.



The User interface



Maximum distance of reflection in %:

The reflection starts at the first transparent pixel found from top to bottom.

This slider is setting the distance you want for the reflection in percent of the height...

Darkest reflection in %:

This is the 'strength' of the reflection. High value (darker?) will be a clear reflection and low value will be more foggy.

Bottom pixels of object to ignore

You could change the 'border line' position up-down with this setting.


Anti-Aliasing level.

Primary color mask (checkbox)

See the picture below and the explanation above...


Demo by pictures:

1. Original model (Black is the background, I've used a tranparent layer to work on)



2. Effect with original plugin



3. Effect with updated plugin



4/5. Effect with the method of mask using primary color


The mask will allow you to add a reflection on images with transparent parts.

Fill the transparent parts with a color which isn't yet in the image.


The plugin will replace the primary color by transparent.

I down loaded your program. Can you tell me how to use it on the paint.net program? I can't open it with paint.net v3.20. Do I open paint.net program and then open the mirror program threw that or what. I am new to this. Any help will be taken greatfully. Thanks for your :? time.

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
