Reflection Issues - raytrace
on Apr 18, 2013 at 12:04:07 pm

Hi,

I'm following this tutorial: http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorial/3d_reflections/

For some reason the linear wipe will only work when the layer is not 3D. This obviously causes a huge issue...

Hmm, think I have solved by adding an adjustment layer between the text layers and applying the linear wipe to that...

3D layers in ray-traced comps cannot accept effects. Traditional Ae effects work on pixels, but the ray tracer thinks in terms of light, geometry, and materials.
