Make an object invisible but its reflection visible

I want to make the reflection of an object visible but the object invisble in my final render. How do I do that? Thank you.


I saw a really nice trick for this an Gleb’s channel but forgot… Anyhow, have you tried switching off camera and shadow in the object properties/visibility?

@HEV_Suit You can set it up in the node editor with a light path node. Here is an older video about the light path node and its uses. It still applies today with current builds.

Thank you for answering.
How would I do that in v2.79?

same thing, object tab, cycles settings on the bottom and uncheck camera and shadow


It worked. Thank you.
