Mirror character when compositing in real life scene
show user profile  ben1994
I am compositing a scene with a character in a real life world (video camera recorded) and i want the charcter to see itself in the mirror. Is there any things like shadow matte or something that does not appear in the render but shows the charcter in the mirror using the plane shape as a mask...

Hopefully someone can understand that (i am not good with asking questions, they always sound confusing..... :-))

well, since you are rendering on an image I pressume, the 100% reflective plain will in fact just be transparent everywhere else except where it has something to reflect ( eg the character and its shadow)

hopefully you can understand that ( i am not good with answering questions, they allways sound confusing..... :-))

thanks. managed to get it done using the reflective map, but having flat mirror on it. Worked well.
