Hi there... I am experimenting with rendering in Maya and am struggling with trying to get object shadows to appear in reflections using Raytracing... is there something simple I am missing? Any help here would be fabulous!!

Thanks...

Set Ray Depth limit on your light to 1+the amount of shadow ray reflections you have...for the start 2 will work fine...be sure to also check Render Globals>Raytracing>Shadows , which has to be set not lower than the Ray Depth on your light since its a global overide...
