Cannot make material to reflect background

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am creating an art inspired on those old progressive cover albums, in particular, the HR Giger logo for Emerson, Lake & Palmer.

 

The problem is no matter what I do, I am not able to make the metallic material of the logo to reflect the background image. The object material itself is illuminated by the sky. But I would like to have the material reflecting the background for realism. Specially the polygons of the extrusion.

 

I have tried everything, but nothing did the trick.

Thank you.

No, that is correct. A background object isn't truly part of the scene so isn't seen by reflections. So you need the same sort of environment (or one vaguely approximate to it), either built into an HDRI / Sky object setup, or as an image on a large plane that you can physically place in the scene, hidden from camera and shadow casting etc (but not reflections) via a compositing tag...

Thank you @Cerbera !

I followed your recommendations.
Made a plane with the same background image /  Composition tag / everything turned off but Seen by Reflection.


Problem solved!
