Reflections?(Like a mirror)
« on: May 21, 2008, 01:09:56 am »

Ok, I have Anim8or V0.95 How do i create an object that reflects Like a mirror? I know it can be done, i've seen renders that have it.(An example would be the "Full House" Creation in the Finished Creations Area. Notice the Red Table Reflects objects above it?) How do i do this with having any tricks like photoshop?  :-\

You have to use the latest version, v0.97.  You can find it here: http://www.anim8or.com/download/preview/index.html
You use the ART raytracer which you can read about here: http://www.anim8or.com/download/preview/art_raytracer.html

Warning:  version 0.97 is not a fully stable version of Anim8or, and does not contain some of the features of V0.95, such as panoramic backgrounds for example.  I strongly recommend continuing to work with 0.95 for modelling and rigging, for its stability.  You can open 0.95 files in 0.97 (and 0.96 incidentally) and render using the (seriously cool) ART renderer, but be aware that some features will not function.

apart from the new shadow bug, i think 0.97 works better for me. it crashes less.

I have to agree with mcheccyb here.  I haven't come across any of the modeling bugs in v0.97 that I have in v0.95.  I find it a much more stable version.  The only thing that's more unstable than v0.95 in v0.97 is the ART raytracer which isn't even included in v0.95.
