Hi,

When doing most reflections I do use the Video Copilot plugin, or flip the image, blur it out and tweek/skew it a little.
That works fine when objects and a car is standing with the wheels on a horizontal line.

When that is not the case, and the car is standing in a three quarter view this method is not going to work.

Any good ideas?

Do you have a screenshot? I don't quite understand what the shot looks like.

And how are you acquiring this car image?

Is this what you mean? This is a quick test of using Bezier Warp on the lower image. It's not looking that great but I bet you could touch it up and get little to no visable warping.

Thank you! This is exactly what I mean!
How did you manage to do this? Can you walk me through it?

Sorry for the late response!

Here's a quick run through of what I did. There may be an easier way, but this seemed to worked pretty quickly.

1- flip image



2- Fix perspective using bezier warp


3- Paint out whatever surface you may need to keep on the top layer.
In my example the image had a surface so I just kept some of it.. Not sure what you have there or what your plan is on that but this is what I did.


I didn't do any touching up of the image itself as you can see, but it sounds like you have the source files all set so it didn't seem necessary. If Bezier Warp doesn't work for your image maybe try corner pin or some other warping tool. Hope this helps!

Thank you very much!
I can see that this works if the three quarter view is not more twisted than in your example.
