    Help creating a mirror

    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.
