Hi

I am trying to create a reflection of a number of models.
Basically I have created a floor object, placed other objects on top of it and want to see these reflected in the floor.

I have turned on rlection on the floor but can't seem to get an actual reflection, no matter what I try.

thanks in advance

whats your surface settings ? ( on the floor )

you have turned on reflection in the render globals settings or on the surface ?

Bingo - didn't have the ray trace reflections turned on in Render options.

many thanks for the prompt

Tip for making a mirror: if you really want 100% reflection use a black color, set Reflection to 100% and Diffuse to 0%. In most cases Diffuse and Reflection should add up to make 100, like 40% of one, 60% of the other for example.
