First post. Been hanging around for almost a year. Finally feel worthy to ask stupid questions.
Playing with Motion 4 I like the ability to make an element reflective. Simple click of the check box. What I don't get (not that its version 4 specific) is how to make a background (say a color solid) appear to be made of glass or otherwise demonstrate the illusion of being a reflective surface.
If this is purely a Photoshop thing thats fine, but I'd like to know/see demonstrated the effect done in Motion as it may make integration with a project easier. For example, going back to PS every time the project is tweaked to keep the illusion correct would be time consuming.
I know its a matter of "If I want it to work this way, it should", but butter to ask smarter users than myself.
Hi, Noah. Thanks for the interest. I'll look to post an example, you are probably correct that there is a method, I just haven't figured it out.
While I don't have an example to post (I'll look for one, though) imagine the gloss of a hardwood floor right before an NBA game. You can see the painted lines and team logos through the gloss, but you just as easily see the gloss itself.
Does that make sense? I'm afraid I don't know the industry terminology.
