View Full Version : reflection

01 January 2005, 08:37 PM
i am a little confused as to how i would go about rendering out my scene.....not sure whether to render in different passes for relfection, diffuse etc...

i have my 3d objects emerging from my shot footage of my car, i have matched the camera and matched the car model up accurately. My object emerging is light by a HDR image and works well, i have rendered this straight out and matches up fine with footage, how do i go about the reflections in the car body?

Most definately render out in layers. If you run into any problems, like a reflection to strong, or something the wrong color in the diffuse channel, you can quickly change that in post, if not you have to re-render all of it again.

first what software are you using?

I have a very basic example of this on my web site on layers over footage.
