    Hi, I am trying to have an object float around in a random motion, with a reflection.

    I found the randome movement code somewhere, and tried making it work with the reflection. It works on the x, but not y ... it makes the reflection keep rising and rising untill it goes behind the object.

    Please tell me what im doing wrong, TIA

    onClipEvent (load) {
    width = 5
    height = 5
    accelFactor = Math.ceil(Math.random()*4) + 2;
    newX = Math.round(Math.random()*width);
    newY = Math.round(Math.random()*height);
    }

    onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
    currentlocx = this._x;
    currentlocy = this._y;
    differencex = newX-currentlocx;
    differencey = newY-currentlocy;
    accelx = differencex/accelFactor;
    accely = differencey/accelFactor;
    this._x = this._x+accelx;
    this._y = this._y+accely;
    _parent.reflect._x = _parent.reflect._x+accelx;
    _parent.reflect._y = _parent.reflect._y-accely;
    if (Math.round(this._y) == Math.round(newY) && Math.round(this._x) == Math.round(newX)) {
    newX = Math.round(Math.random()*width);
    newY = Math.round(Math.random()*height);
    accelFactor = Math.ceil(Math.random()*4) + 2;
    }
    }

    Hey -
    this line:
    _parent.reflect._y-accely;

    should be
    _parent.reflect._y+accely;



    Psx

    psycholonex .... if i change the - to a + .. then it will move in the same exact motion as the main object.. i need the reflection to have oposite motion in the y axis

    ..looks like it's working to me, what are you exactly asking me to do? (it actually moves fine, if you take it's _alpha off you can see it "reflecting" the bottle correctly..)

    I GOT IT....ok, now I understand! hehehehehehe
    should have told me it takes a LONG time to go up...
    this is probably a rounding problem, I'll check this out.

    Ok, I couldn't actually figure out what was wrong...but it was surely a problem related to the decimals of the x and y coordinates....

    Anyway I changed the reflection now...it refers to the shadow y position....just move it up or down and the reflection height will change accordingly..

    Hope this is ok now
    And the next time make it clear...just say "Hey! this is NOT what I wanted!".



    cheers.

    Is it ok like this?
    Actually you should make the image of the bottle from beneeth..so that you get a photo-realistic reflection...that would be very, very cool
    I like the overall effect of the thing anyway

    Cheers

    yes, the way you did it is ok.

    I originally was planing to use the image for the reflection, but because the original picture is taken at an angle that it is, if I flip it, it doesn't look right. So im debating if I should try to play with the image in photoshop and use that 2nd image as a reflection, or I should leave it in vector for the filesize sake.

    best thing is you get a second shot of the image....filesize is going to stay low anyway....those photos are really small
