Hey all! I just bought a bathroom set off the content store, and was wondering, how do you get the mirrors to show reflections? I'm creating a scene where a character seeing themselves in a mirror is an important moment. 


FYI the content pack I downloaded is called "Rusting Bathroom" from the developer Everything 3D. Great stuff!

Unfortunately iClone can't do a mirror Pinch
There are some workarounds with "water" but these are very tricky.
You will have to do a search here to find some tutorials or someone chimes in with it.
Here is my "workaround" with a "recorded camera view for the mirror":

Hm, with Iray it is possible now.
As i am still on iClone 7.3, i never tried it.
Here is a thread where you can see it:

Ask "3dtester" for more info...

There is a long standing-request for a functioning mirror in Feedback Tracker: https://www.reallusion.com/FeedBackTracker/Issue/Add-a-functioning-mirror_1.

If you have a vote to spare, additional votes are appreciated (even if they don't help much...Crying ).

At this point, I'd even accept just an explanation of why mirrors don't exist. Just an official, technical paragraph explaining why it apparently can't be done. At least then I'd understand it a bit.
