Reflections on white seamless background

Hi guys.

Sorry for this question but I've been banging my head about it.
I have a purple box. I put it on a floor (plane) with a reflective material. I render and I got my reflections.
Now I add a background with the same material, put a composite tag on the plane, check composite background.
And the reflection is gone.
I want a simpe reflection on a seamless white background.
How do I accomplish this?

(I use C4D R12)

I think you may have something else in your scene that might be interfering with the reflections. I tried what you did and I was able to get the seamless floor effect. I've upload my file 2469_seamlessbgtest.c4d.zip .

You can also check out this greyscalegorilla tutorial

There also is or was a free alternative called Creating Film Render Kit that I use but I can't seem to find the link online anymore.

Hope this helps


Greg
