Lighting on Reflective Surfaces

Postby Shanky on 12/26/2017, 10:27 am

Hey guys,

I'm currently messing around with After Effects (Still in the stages of learning it), and the scene I've created is below. Above the three balls I've added a spotlight, and behind the balls is a plane which I added in E3D. While you can see a reflection of the balls in the background, albeit faintly, the light does not show on that backplane. I was wondering if there are any settings in E3D or After Effects which I could change to add this reflection, just to give the lighting more realism.

Thanks Guys

PS. It's a bit hard to tell in the picture that the light does not show on the backplane, so sorry about that :)
