Mirror on the wall?

Postby david2169 » Thu Aug 11, 2016 2:47 pm

I am struggling to find how to create mirror surfaces. In the first instance i want to simply create a glass mirror but further i would like to be able to add reflective effects to any surfaces, for example floors...
Keep searching for help on this but without finding anything so far, anyone help please?

Hi.
You simply select a material name, right click and select "To Mirror."
If you want stuff reflected in it you need to add that stuff to your scene.

Cheers.
