hey all,

i have a quick question for everyone. i am sure it is something small i just forgot to turn on or something, but i have made a studio lighting setup with three luminous polys all with their luminosity set to 100%. the polygons seem to be lighting the scene, but they are not showing up in the reflections. i have some chrome, but it seems to just look like clay when rendered, almost like the luminous polygons arent even there. did i miss something?

thanks,
adam

okay, nevermind. it has been one of those nights haha. i forgot to turn on raytrace reflections. i was treating it like an HDR and didnt even think about the raytracing. genius.

It must be art drugs, too many or not enough.
