Thread: For Cycles and combining Live Footage and Reflections...

    For Cycles and combining Live Footage and Reflections...

    Is there a built in way to take a live footage or photo and to have your 3D object and be able to add its reflection into the footage Using Cycles? Example I have live Footage with a glossy floor that is reflective. That is in the live Footage so I want my CG object to be reflected in that. I know in the normal Render Engine its there but I don't see it yet in Cycles? I saw the Shadow one and got that to work. Just wondering if its in and I am missing something or if it is not in the current release but will be later?

    You need to set your own footage and world texture (to big to attach).
    Dont forget to run the tracker again and reconstruct plane etc..

    Good work dave! I didn't think it was possible to composite reflections without the use of BI. It's strange though, I tried a similar method some time ago and it didn't work. After I took a look at your file and tried again, voilą! Thanks a bunch!

    Also, here's the method I used:

    Very, very smooth. Really, really helpful Dave.

    Crap. Now I've got to go back and change a bunch of files to get this in there!

    Thanks again guys!
