Tintin, vincent, liuyongcai and 9 others like this!

When playing around with the mirror layer I realized nice compositions can be created by using multiple mirrors.

This show uses 2 text and 4 mirror layers.

I placed and rotated the mirrors so that the 2 texts are, at least partly, visible in all of them!

thanks michiel, when you think of it a mirror is something extraordinary, a little glass, a silver painting and hop you find yourself in front of yourself, with an object between two mirrors face to face it is an infinity of copies that you can see.

"object between two mirrors face to face it is an infinity of copies"

Well this doesn't work in BluffTitler because of the infinite calculations.
So maybe the workaround could be a limiter to make the number of copies FINITE.
For instance 4 times, but you would then also need the ability to set the distance progression of the next reflection and a "fog" parameter would be nice to make the reflections fade away.

Just thinking out loud here :)

Thnx Michiel. The number of creative options of BT are almost infinitive.

Yes it's true, i have already noticed this in this show, at 2 or 3 sec we can see the ghost of van Gogh in the background mirror instead of the reflection of the front mirror. It's the magic of BluffTitler ??

Vincent, your video is private ?

michiel, 4 years ago

Hi michiel, just changed its status, sorry!.

Nice one Vincent! For some reason I had never seen this before. Wasn't it posted earlier in the community?

I understand why the mirror isn't visible in the mirror. But why does it turn white at the end of the video?

michiel, 4 years ago

Thank you Michiel, long time ago i have posted a slightly different black and white version, for the white at the end : there is nothing in front of mirror except camera layer and light layer, there is no wall in front of background mirror.

Thank you Michiel for this new idea which opens up interesting perspectives.

I would like to know if the same thing can be done with about 10 pictures. Maybe not the mirror part. Just flying pictures with a logo.

Doowrenum, you can create as many picture and mirror layers as you want. You won't have to worry about running out of memory until you start using hundreds of 4K pictures.

Create new layers with submenus of the LAYER > ADD LAYER menu.
