Hi,

Can anyone help me with a little reflection issue I've got?

I have an animation with several elements and a series of camera moves...

All I want to do is add a white reflective floor with a graduated fade through the reflection (to white).

I did it by adding the grad to the reflection option in the material channel, however because my floor plane was so big it doesn't work properly.

Thanks

Maybe try dispersion?

what does the gradient option actually do to the reflections?

Hi all,

Thanks for your speedy answers.

They don't seem to work for me (not sure if i'm applying the plugin correctly)

I'm using v9.6 on a mac, does that make a difference?

The grad basically fades the refection out to white.. doing with a grad in the reflection channel only works if the floor surface is quite small (mine is not)

Can anyone else shed any light?

Thanks

You might untick the "tile" option on your material once you've applied it to your floor. The gradient will then be applied to only a small portion of the total area. You might have to resize it and move it around in texture space to center it properly.
