So I wish to apply the reflection plane to a curved surface.
Hi mjb11800, the tooltip text for the (+) button is 'Add Plane
', and once you've clicked that button it says 'Click a standard material or glass to add a plane
'. In other words, reflection planes only work on flat (planar) surfaces such as floors, windows etc.
b)If so, how do I cover the entire material?
If a material is reflective and you haven't applied a reflection plane to it via the Reflection
effect, it will use less accurate projected reflections
. There's more information about this reflection type in the Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts
Oh and in future updates, please please please can we have volumetric lighting that works with spotlights at night with the fog/dust (etc) special effect?
I'd be grateful if you could post this suggestion in the Wish List
section, so that it won't disappear in the General Discussion Area
