Hello everyone I have become quite stumped on how to create the effect im looking for.

What I want to do is have a video acting as a reflection in lets just say a mirror and have the mirror break to reveal something behind it. Now the tricky part is I do not want to just add a shatter effect to my video and make it break. What I want it to look like is a reflection and when the mirror breaks the video actually doesn't move at all and you can only see the reflection in the broken pieces as they fall.

So far I have only been able to create the shatter effect directly to my video and my video falls to the ground which clearly doesn't look like a reflection in falling pieces of mirror/glass.


I saw this type of effect in a video so ill post the link to that to hopefully give you a better understanding to what I want. I realize that they probably didn't make this in any effect and they actually shot it live on the spot with a video camera but I want to re-create this.







Thanks,
Shaun
