What I want to share today is my little hack to reflect a CCSprite used in to cocos2d. I say hack because it does feel a little dirty, i didn't go and learn about the details of Open GL and the like, simply patched things together to get a working solution.
Below is the code for my ImageReflector, the basic idea and how it got it work was simple:
The best looking reflection example I found was Apples' example. So the methods createBitmapContext, createGradientImage and reflectedImage are directly from the above example. I wanted to use it in cocos2d so I used CCRenderTexture to create a UIImage, passed that to Apples' example code and then simply converted back to a CCSprite with the help of the CCTexture2D class.
