Episode 6: Adding Reflections and 3D Transformations
In this final episode, we’ll finish up the Cover Flow application by adding reflections to each of the photos and apply 3D transformations to the side photos. You’ll learn how to:
- add images and their masks to a reflection layer
- use Quartz drawing functions to create gradients for reflection masks
- rework the layout manager to properly handle 3D transformations
- apply 3D transformations and blur effects to images
- use a sublayer transformation to apply perspective transformations to the layer
