Visual Effects

A missing reflection is a sure give away that your composited foreground object wasn’t in the original shot. Reflection gives you a fast way to help sell a professional composite.

Motion Graphics

Use reflection to add life to your motion graphics. Great for use with text and logos.

FEATURES

Easy User Interface

Reflection’s visual user interface makes it easy to grab on the effect and take control. Changethe angle, reflection start point and more with simple handles in the AE comp window.

Fade and Softness

It’s easy to blur or change the opacity of the entire reflection, but one of the unique, powerful aspects of this effect is its ability to blur and fade the reflection as it gets further from the source.

Transform

Reflection makes it easy to manage both the scale and offsets for more convincing (or stylized) results.

Motion Blur

Reflection has the ability to add motion blur for even more realism.

GPU-Accelerated

Reflection is GPU accelerated so you’ll get fast feedback and rendering.

Show Reflection Only (NEW)

Based on a popular request from customers, Reflection 1.5 now includes a one-click solution for instantly hiding the contents of the source layer and showing only the reflection. This is very useful for situations where you’d separate out the source and reflection as layers in order to add effects to your source that you don’t want applied to your reflection.

Distortion (NEW)

Not all reflections are perfectly flat. Reflection 1.5 includes the ability to distort your reflection over bumps and dips in the background layer (such as the ripples on the surface of a lake) for a more realistic composite.
