Eran,

This is a great tutorial and I bought RG Warp as a result. It works quite well but I found that if I use text that is in a tracked shot that the RG Warp does not "stick" to it. It moves with the camera pan, while the text remains anchored where it should. Any idea how to get the RG Warp Reflection to follow the tracked text?

Appreciate it.

Eric

In order to fix that you can download a free Reflection preset from here:
http://www.sternfx.com/flv/Reflection_preset.zip
I've put in a special expression for the mirror effect which should fix this issue for any footage, expect Text.
If you wish to use it with Text layer, then you need to Pre-Compose the Text, apply the Reflection preset and then change the Y value of the Reflection Center until you see fit.

I hope this helps :)

Great tutorial. Thanks.

But one question about the no-plugins method... for me the mirror effect does not stay with the layer when I move it, instead doing the mirror opposite. When I move my layer up in the comp the mirrored effect moves down away from it. How come yours stays with the layer?

Nice tutorial Eran. FYI for anybody that wants to buy, Digitial Juice has this plugin for $99 vs. $199 on the RG site. Not sure how long it'll last but it's a good place to look if anyone is interested.
