Wow, I can see why you want to achieve this. 
I can't help you, it's too much work just to try, but apart from convert to smart object, I think you can do everything..

Hello Anna,

 

Just to let you know that this is one of the topics I'm gonna cover in an upcoming tutorial, the mirror and prism effect.

I'll post here at the forum as soon as it goes online.

Hello Anna,

Principle I see there no problem in Affinity Photo, one would have only something to adapt the expiration to affinity.
On the fly a workaround is created but because of the complexity is not as easy as possible, I would like to write to you just try it times with shapes, works quite well.

The video is well done, as is played with many functions of Photoshop,
I think that one could also make something more simplified.

Fun! Pedro, I've clicked "Follow" this topic and look forward to your tut. Alan "MyStrawberryMonkey" was also talking in a post about mirror being one of his fav filters.

I'm still working in another tutorial (three to be precise) before I can do this one but I wanna share what I made just to see if my idea could work. I also want to say that my goal is not to copy the MDNA cover despite you can do it with the approach I'm using. Will see the end result. For now see the attached file and tell me what you think.

 

Cheers,

Pedro

Great looking! With this starter, I can see a lot of options for variation of result. For example, the choice of bkgd image will matter, the width/number of your (primary & secondary) rectangles will matter, and the choice of filters applied to (I'm guessing) the rectangles will affect the outcome. Possibly, the rectangles can be slanted off perpendicular also.

You are correct jer,

 

There are a lot of things to consider in order to get a good result with this technique. Nevertheless you can use it in every image despite the results.

And yes, the rectangles can be slanted as you like.

Looks promising so far and as a hint, if you also could automate the whole creation process or portions of it via replayable macros, I believe a lot of people will use it.

Wow,I like your tech. I understand the other bits can be done on ones own,but this here I like,still right up there with the split mirrors,even if you didn't want to "copy" all. Thanks for sharing your preview and cant wait to see you're tutorial on this and others. :)

Thanks Pedro,

 

These are great tutorials. Thank you and keep them coming.

 

Did you consider self-publishing a book with advanced tutorials about AD and AP?

 

I think that the community would appreciate your efforts and would make your time spent on making these tutorials more worthwhile for you.

 

Regards

Hi Seneca,

 

Thanks for the kind words. And I don't have intention of stoping here :)

Regarding your suggestion, its something that already came to my mind and that I'm considering seriously.

Let's see if I manage to get the time to do something worth it.

 

Kind Regards,

Pedro

Pedro, fantastic! There is an amazing amount of training in various effects in this 29 min video. Additionally, I really enjoyed the 9 min of pre-work in AD then moving into AP for the remainder. Seeing how AD & AP can work together on a project like this made me think where it might be effective in some of my own works. Also, the many uses of Adjustment Layers and the duplicating, stacking and grouping of them was extremely helpful. And the result is beautiful. Tons of stuff in this one video - THANKS!

Hi jer,

 

I'm glad you like it and found it useful for your work.

Its also important to me to understand if the tutorials I'm making are being helpful and built in the proper way, so thanks for the feedback.

More will come very soon.

 

Cheers,
