Hi folks,

I'm just trying to work out if I can get a mirror working under the following circumstances.

For example:

**
Main comp 1280 x 720
PreComp to be mirrored 100 x 100
**

When I apply the mirror I do not see the expected result or a duplicated and flipped version of my pre comp.

I understand that the mirror must be working within the confines of the 100x100 layer and therefore displaying it outside of those bounds, you would not expect to see anything.
I did however, expect that turning on 'continually rasterize' would work, but it does not.

Of course I could easily comp my smaller image into a full size pre-comp, or just duplicate a layer, but I'm trying to fill a hole in my understanding. Hope you clever folks can shed some light.

Cheers

Moog

Why not precomp your image into a 100x200 precomp? Then apply the mirror effect to the precomp.

apply the grow bounds effect (with increased value) prior to the mirror effect.
