I haven't yet tried this myself, but ...

Example using a rock and water:
1. Take a rock, remove a piece of the bottom (so later on it looks like it is in water).
2. Copy the result and rotate that one 180 degrees.
3. Put down a solid floor (water, rock, etc).
4. Place the rotated copy on it.
5. Put a transparent watertile or the Nightcover (look in forum), or any other transparent cover that looks like water over it.
6. Put the original rock with the removed bottom on top of the copy in such a way that the bottoms touch eachother.

Please try this and post a result. You can also do this (but in a slightly different way) with a tree or structure situated on a waterfront, or a ship on water, or something reflected in a mirror, or ...

Have fun

Actually, the "transpose" tool (the >< button) is better, since you actually want to flip the rock's appearance so that it looks like a reflection.

Remember that this is only a horizontal flip (along a vertical axis), so you need to align the rock vertically, make a copy, flip the copy, and then move the rock and image into position.

I may get a chance to post an example tonight, if all goes well.

Just found this from the tutorial list. It seems to me that, rather than trying to blend a transparent water tile on top of the rock, you simply make a copy of the rock and make it quasi-transparent itself, then drop a solid and a transparent version on the map. Just another approach that strikes me as easier to manipulate.

But then you have to make that rock transparent outside DJ ... The whole point was to do it all in DJ itself

I too would like to see a picture of this.

Tutorials without pictures is like Oreos without milk.
