Reflection still visible in opacity map
on Mar 13, 2014 at 5:23:42 pm

Hi - I'm applying (or at least trying to apply) a material to a box.
The box has some holes in it - these holes are created with an opacity map - no problems here....when I add a reflection map to the box it still reflects on top of these holes. I've altered the reflection map to factor in these holes but am having no luck.
Any ideas ?
Joey

I'd guess that you have to use the opacity map to cut out the reflections in the reflection map - in other words, add the opacity map from the box to the opacity channel in whatever type of reflection you're using.

You're quite welcome. That one has bit me dozens of times, which is why I knew the answer right away.
