Is there a way to achieve a true mirrored reflection of an environment with Invigorator? I have the reflection setting at 100, but I'm getting a blurred reflection of my environment on the flat front of my image. I checked some settings, but I didn't see anything on it.
I can put the environment on the face of the image, but it just pastes it on and won't react correctly as the 3D odject turns. I was thinking of distorting and Offsetting it as the 3D object spun, but was hoping there was an easier way.
Can you achieve a high polished mirror reflection in Invig?

Hi Kurt! Nice to see you around!
There are two things you must consider when working with reflection maps:
-To avoid the blurred look your object should have a very dark color. Black works best.
-To have more control on what is reflected on an object best is to use a comp as a layer map, add your environment to this comp and scale it way down until you see a clear reproduction of your map on your 3D object.
