    As far as I know, only with plugins. Or maybe a script call.


    I mean, MV does not have mirroring for pictures that I can find.

    Load it in Photoshop and highlight the picture with the rectangular marquee tool (M) or lasso. Then press CTRL+ALT+T. Then you can make a mirrored copy of the image. You can also press CTRL+T to just flip the picture.

    You can flip a picture by setting the width to -100 :

    This is exactly what I don't want to do. The picture may be mirrored but it moves from the spot away.

    @Zak Well, all that needs to change is the width. All the other settings can stay the same. The picture shown is just an example to show the width being negative. You do not have to change the X and Y values to what is shown on the screen shot.

    ah, I didn't even think of just putting -100%!


    Zak, the picture only moves from the spot if you change the position in its designation.


    BUT, since it is a Move Picture, you'd need to see the value in the original Show Picture to put the same...


    Alternatively you'd use a variable.

    Unfortunately still not working. The picture lands with the same position numbers somewhere else.


    Maybe it's bugged, honestly don't know what's wrong with it.


    Maybe I'll try it to bind to a variable later on but I need to read into this first I guess.

    You have the origin set to upper left, I guess?


    Because than the -100% scaling will flip the picture into the other direction. (If you want to see it in action, show a picture somewhere on the screen and use the Move Picture command to "resize" it slowly to -100%, for 60 frames or so. You'll see what I mean.)


    You need to either set the origin to center or add the width of the picture to the X coordinate.
