I see what you're requesting now. Thanks for the detailed explanation.

I'd suggest making the material for the floor completely transparent.
This way, only the reflection will show up in the mask for the floor in After Effects.

I made a test scene in ProAnimator:

The floor has a transparent material with Ray Trace Reflectivity and Falloff applied:

Once back in After Effects, I added a camera and a blue Solid. You can see that the Solid
looks like it's reflecting the ProAnimator scene, even though the reflection is coming from
within the ProAnimator plug-in.

Let me know if this helps, or if you have more questions.
