I want to make my object chrome. I selected the object, went to surface editor and set reflection to 100. This doesn't seem to have changed anything.

Does your object have something to reflect?

Did you activate raytrace reflection in the render options?

Once you make sure raytrace reflection is on in the render options, in your reflections options under your enviroment tab in the surface editor, I get good results with setting it to raytracing + spherical map. Then pick a good image to reflect underneath that setting.

NICE! My reflected image could use some work, but it works. Thanks!
