RED GIANT Reflection plugin for Adobe After Effects

Fast Reflections

Reflection is a plugin for After Effects that makes it easy to add a reflection to your layers. With controls for softness, distance fade, length and more, this effect goes far beyond the standard methods for creating reflections.

Visual Effects

A missing reflection is a sure give away that your composited foreground object wasn’t in the original shot. Reflection gives you a fast way to help sell a professional composite.

Motion Graphics

Use reflection to add life to your motion graphics. Great for use with text and logos.


VFX Reflection has been designed to include lots of features to make adding reflections in After Effects simple and fast.

Easy User Interface

Reflection’s visual user interface makes it easy to grab on the effect and take control. Change the angle, reflection start point and more with simple handles in the AE comp window.

Fade and Softness

It’s easy to blur or change the opacity of the entire reflection, but one of the unique, powerful aspects of this effect is its ability to blur and fade the reflection as it gets further from the source.
