How do I achieve this effect???

Basically I am putting together some models that will be rendered and animated with motion blur and a few other things. A few of the objects are gonna be metal and I wanted to know if anyone knows how to make it shine and reflect like silvery polished metal does.

Like what materials would have to be applied to the object?

I appreciate any help. Thanks.

Download the materials CD (from the Blender website, free, look under resources) and there are good metal material settings in there. Basically for chromium and shiny reflective surfaces you turn up Refl in the Mirror settings.

maybe the free blender material library?
