Is It Possible for Proanimator Objects to cast Reflections?

I was wondering if there was any way to get ProAnimator objects to cast reflections onto a plane instead of shadows?

Hi Got2BTru,

The short answer is no, not in the current version. ProAnimator uses reflection mapping to simulate reflections from an environment around the object or objects. The environment can be an image or a layermap.

I suspect getting objects to reflect off of eachother would require raytracing, a very processor-intensive form of rendering which is not an option right now. You may be able to fake it, though, depending on how much motion you're dealing with.
