Reflection inverted on 3d images RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can make a visual brush for a reflection effect in Blend. But when I do it on an image that i have "Make Image 3D"'d and turn the image left or right the reflection always turns in the opposite direction of the image. How can I fix this?

  • Howdy,

    What happens if you select Object menu, flip Horizontal on the element you have the visual brush applied to?

    Cheers

  • That was my first thought as well. This does look a little better but it's still not angled correctly. There has to be something I'm doing fundamentally wrong that just has a simple solution here.

  • Howdy,

    If you need to give a depth reflection to a 3D object, you could tak a look at the CD library sample that comes with Blend. The technique used there is to create a reflected image in 3D as well and attach to the bottom of the original mesh on top.

    That sample has some great pointers.

    Good luck.

    Cheers
