For the mirror... look it up where you found the picture. and you need to have v.97 preview. The shadows. You must enable shadows cast and recieved on the object and the plane. Then you need to change the shadow settings of the light. If you don't understand this I can explain in more detail

The mirror in Anim8or is just a material.
Make sure you have v.97 then in the material editor
click attributes and enter new
in the top box type "specular" (without quotes)
in the bottom box type "reflection" (without quotes)
You can then edit the specular value in the material editor to adjust the amount of reflection.

For soft shadows in scene mode create a light double click it
click advanced
check the 'cast shadows' box
select raytrace and check the 'soft' box
then change the size box to about 3 (the larger this value the softer the shadows)
