Zaxwerks Reflector HELP
on Jun 2, 2008 at 8:42:26 pm

Hello,

I have read many forums and tutorials on the Zaxwerks Reflector. I cannot seem to get it to work properly at all. I have created a 3D plane from a solid in AE. I then put the Reflector effect to the floor and not my 3D logo. I have created a 3D logo through Invigerator Classic. Nothing happens. I have tried updating the Reflector. I get a reflection when I turn the 3D logo into a 3D layer. I have read not to do this but it seems to work. However, the reflection on the floor is not correct. It looks like a mirror of a mirror if you understand what I mean. It is at the wrong angle.

In addition, the reflection looks wavy.

Any help or if some direction of a tutorial is much apprecited.

Thanks,
Kevin

Hi Kevin.

Be sure to turn off "Hide 2D Layers" in the Reflector effect.

Since the Invig is on a 2D layer, it will be hidden by default.

Let us know if this fixes your problem.

Hello,

Yes, thank you that worked. My question is that since the 3D floor plane is in 3D space, do I have to angle my 2D solid of my 3D Invigerator logo in order to get the correct angle of my reflection? What is happening is that when I spin the logo, the angle on the floor is slightly off. I see this is due to the floor is at a different camera angle than the Invigorator logo, since it's in it's own 3D space within Invigorator. Is is better to just animate the AE camera and not the Invigorator object within a set in Invigorator? I hope this makes sense.

Also, my reflection seems to get cut off. Any suggestions or tutorial you can point me in the direction of. I have read te documentation with the plugin and am still have trouble getting good use out of it.

Thanks again for the help.
Kevin

Hi Kevin.

Make sure your Invig effect is using the Comp Camera
(look for the "Use Comp Camera" checkbox in the ECW).

Once that is checked, you can consider your Invig objects
in the same 3D space as your 3D floor. They're both viewed
through the same camera.

If that doesn't help you, send me your project
(matt@zaxwerks.com) and I'll take a look.

Let us know if you have more questions.
