Hi all, i don't know whether this question belongs here but here it is.
If you would care to look at the last image in this thread.
Now as you can see the headlights chrome is not as it should be.
So how can i render the same scene which uses hdri for the reflections and still get that nice chrome look as you see in real life.
My guess is to use a reflection map on the chrome surface but somehow that's not working correctly.
Can i use the hdr image as refl. map? If not how does a good refl. map look like.
If you have a sample it would be great.

Cheers and thnx alot

HDR's are ideal for reflection maps.

It looks like the reflection value is just too low. Go for 95%.
