Floating reflections

Recommended Posts

Hi all


A client of mine has asked me if I could render the attached (screen shot only) so that the reflection is actually in colour but also semi transparent so that when i supply the file they can float the image over other projects and it'll look right and not produce a white halo sort of thing around it. Ive tried dealing with by multi pass rendering but Im having to supply the reflection as a layer in PS set to multiply but client doesn't want the reflection to be part of the underlying colour.


So can it be done?

I find the easiest thing in that situation is to render the reflection on black, then in pshop you can put it on in screen mode or similar and grad it in or out as you see fit. There may be a more elegant cinema method but that way gives them the reflection on a layer.
