How to make symmetric/reflected/mirrored animation?

I want to make an hand drawn animation that is repeated 4 times, reflected, so it creates images like, for example, this:

http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2012/010/c/c/tiffany_4_times_reflected_by_geekytiffany-d4lzec4.jpg

Of course is don’t want to do this afterwards. I just want to see what is happening and how it’s looking, in real time. So that when you draw a line, it appears four times on your sceen… And you can really start sketching and search for cool things you can create this way… Much like the ‘‘symmetry modifier’’ in 3DS max, for example.

Is this possible in Toon Boom?

Thanks in advance. :slight_smile:

You can do that using the module “apply image transformation”

From the original drawing, bring 4 connections to the composite. One will be the original and the other 3 will be the transformed ones.

Add an “apply image transformation” to the 3 copies and add a peg to those modules.

Now you have to change the scale of the pegs, being…

x=1
y=-1

x=-1
y=1

x=-1
y=-1

(the original one would be x=1, y=1 so you don’t have to change anything to this one)

And that’s it

I’d like to attach a snapshot of the network with the connections made but this forum is… :confused:

Thanks archiviloria :slight_smile:
I’m gonna try that out!

For anyone who wants to do this too, i’ll post the image you posted (in another tread) here:
