shadow inside reflection
I am wondering how to get shadow to appear inside reflection. Say, I have a character standing in front of a mirror. When I render out, only the character is reflected.... What would be the right way to solve this problem...
Thanks in advance

To get your shadow visible you should add 1 to the "shadowTraceDepht" in the renderglobals.
BTW, are you using raytraced shadows?

Hi, the problem is the Shadow Depth.
In the Render Globals under raytracing, increase the shadow depth number, it sets how many levels of reflection/refraction your shadows will appear in. You also need to turn this setting up on the light I think, in the raytraced shadows section.
