White Image Border + Image Reflection
« on: January 26, 2019, 10:19:43 AM »
Hey guys I've finally understood how to do image mirroring and also how to do dynamic image borders/frames.   The code for the image mirroring is here but I've always got confused how to actually make it work.  There is one flaw with the image mirroring however that i'm not sure how to fix.  Any picture that is very long in length will not work.  Look at Darius in the example pic.  Also the only way to make it look good is on a black background with a custom overlay to "sell" the reflected image, so you are limited to design choices.   

But now maybe someone can re-create this:

I've attached a simple theme utilizing the scripts.  Hopefully it's helpful!

I wrote a simple shader that may or may not help with the fade to alpha versus black (attached). You may have to place an image on a surface and make it the size of the entire screen, then resize the surface to the image's original dimensions...or you might not. It's highly experimental, but it's yours to play with if you're so inclined!
