View Full Version : Rendering only reflection using layered shader

02 February 2005, 12:15 PM
I really appreciate this forum with great help everytime I ask questions.

I have problem rendering good reflection using layered shader. I used a
usebackground shader for the reflection, but it looks totally wrong when
composite in photoshop.

Therea are 2 layers on the layered shader;l top one is a clear blinn like glass,
and the bottom layer is just a blinn shader with no reflectivity. I want the
reflection of the clear layer, but am not sure how I can get only the reflection
rendered separately for later composite. I am wondering if using sampler info
+ ramp to control the reflectivity of the clear layer is creating a problem...

Does anyone have a good solution or trick?

Thank you very much,

could you post a picture, as its hard to understand your problem, not due to language, its just i could be picturing something completely different to what you are describing.
