JavaFX Reflection Game !

On the way to exploring little more API of JavaFX, I reached to a fair animation. That is reflection. Here is the output of "crying baby".
Here is the code:

import javafx.application.Frame;
import javafx.application.Stage;
import javafx.scene.geometry.Circle;
import javafx.scene.paint.Color;
import javafx.scene.image.ImageView;
import javafx.scene.image.Image;
import javafx.scene.effect.*;

Frame {
title: "Crying Baby"
width: 400
height: 700
closeAction: function() { java.lang.System.exit( 0 );
visible: true

stage: Stage {
fill: Color.WHITE
content: [
ImageView {
x: 100
image: Image {
url: ""
effect: Reflection {
fraction: 1
topOffset: 50
ImageView {
image: Image {
url: ""

Things to watch:

1. Effect: Reflection -

bottomOpacity:0.1 - set the opacity of image in reflection.

fraction: 1 - set how much part of the image should come in reflection.

topOffset: 50 - How far image from the focus. There are some more useful parameters in this.

2. Opacity of second Imageview allow me to see the reflection of first image, else it will cover the reflection.

On the way to make some moving animation, but I don't know what happened to the support of gif image. gif image works like static image, don't know why ?
