It's rather simple but may save people some time. I have put together an object and scene that will generate glass topped buttons, all you need to do is load in your own image to go under the glass.

You can collect it on my downloads page here:

As I said it's fairly basic, so if you tinker to improve it, please share the results with other Lightwave users!

Here are a few results:

A couple more examples using a couple of Vue reflection maps - I have included those here too. The reflections are deliberately rather strong, as this works well when the buttons are reduced to avatar size...

(And I swiped the underlying LW logo from Dave Jerrard)

I'm rather hoping others will tinker with it and produce some variations to share...

If I get a chance will have a footer. Got a couple ideas that may work.

This is rather fun and easy...

Here are a few more, done by just replacing the main image file...
