Help with Reflections and Mirrors

(MikeDough2) #1

Can anybody tell this newbie how to make a reslistic looking mirror with material settings? I tried checking the ref, refl and cmir boxes but I couldn’t make anything remotely like a reflection on the material.

Since Blender is not a raytracer, you need to fake the reflections with envmaps. Look at the tutorial links above. There are many tutes on how to do this. I also have on on my website in the Links section.
