Hi, I have a somewhat complex chrome object and was wondering if there is a way to turn off self-reflection on it. I still need to seen by rays for shadowing, but the self-reflections are a little distracting. Thanks.

Put the reflection of the object texture to zero?

Haha! Sure, that would work . . . except that I need the object to reflect objects around it. Just not itself.

Have the impression it's not working in last LW version but this thread (http://forums.newtek.com/showthread.php?121537-Selective-reflection-object-ray-switch-node) could give you some ideas. You could also consider bake the environment (a sequence if animated) and use it as spherical reflection map for that specific object.
