Hi All,
I can't seem to get my head around this one. I have shapes that are falling towards a reflective floor. They hit the floor then a trapdoor opens and the items fall through. The reflections are fine except when the trapdoor opens and the items fall through. The reflections go in the opposite direction.

I want the floor to act like a mirror.

Here is a quick export of the problem:







Any help would be really appreciated.
Thanks.

I don't know exactly what technique you used to create your reflection, you rare going to need to provide more information on exactly what you did to for people to know how correct the problem.

Or you might want to check out this tutorial on creating reflections, it might help you out and get you pointed in the right direction.

Thanks John,
really appreciate the feedback. I created the ball in newton and then created the reflection by duplicating the comp, flipping it and then added blur. This normally works fine for text or objects that don't go into negative numbers on the x-axis. This is why I found this tricky. Once it moves into negative numbers the reflection doesn't work. I will check out the video, it looks like the solution. Im sure the issue is that I'm faking a 3d reflection.
