I just purchased 3D Everything's "Interrogation Room" but can't activate the mirror. Does anyone have simple instructions?
Thank you,
Lorraine

I notice that pack is originally for iClone 5, which had an functioning mirror.

Unfortunately, a mirror surface has not been implemented in iClone 6 and 7.

A mirror has been requested many times and I've entered a Feedback Tracker item for it (#3371). You can vote to show your support, for what it is worth. We're still waiting for some sort of response from RL...Unsure

You can turn on reflection for the surface that represents the mirror, but that doesn't look very good.

Thank you for letting me know. I wish they said as much before I bought the scene. The mirror was the main thing I needed, I could stick desks and chairs in a room on my own.

How do I turn on the reflective surface?

Thank you for your help.

This is kind of embarrassing because the reflection looks much worse than I recall...Blush Unless I'm doing something wrong...Unsure

It would be easiest to use a separate plane to cover the current mirror area, unless there is  a specific texture for the mirror part of the prop.

Here are the settings:

https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/1082cf93-d084-4f16-9ac2-8eab.jpg

1. Set Shader Type to "Traditional".

2. Set the Diffuse color to black (you can also load a black texture).

3. Enable Reflection and set it to 100%.

Now there used to an option in iClone 5 and earlier to set the size of the reflection map, but I don't see that now. The blockiness is caused by the fact that only a tiny portion of the map is used for this particular surface.

If you search for "mirror" on the forum, you see other options that use cameras, but that would not give you real-time feedback.

I agree that the product specification should state that the mirror does not work for later versions than iClone 5. 

There is no money-back guarantee, but this should be an exception as this is a defect. You could try contacting Customer Support and see if they would give you a refund.

Maybe Peter sees this and will chime in.

The reflection setting has always been as horrible as kick to the face. It has a horrible resolution, cant deal with opacity maps (all characters become bald) and is very gpu demanding. Honestly it should be removed

To make this mirror I use... water. Disadvantage you can't rotate water so this scene the ground or z = y for just when you want to actually use the mirror.

A simple thing to do is allow the water to rotate Reallusion! Problem solved! Hello!

@Dragonskunk: Your video is set *private*.

I made a couple of videos with rotated scene. All is OK, but operating cameras is really hard (https://www.reallusion.com/FeedBackTracker/Issue/Allow-camera-Auto-Level-for-any-given-axis)



BTW, you can move/rotate water (by switching the gizmo OFF and using mouse/keyboard shortcuts).
The problem is, that the reflection does not rotate along with water surface. It stuck on Z.

We need a real mirror! Sigh...

I would think that with using water any physics effects also need to be adjusted, e.g. cloth, gravity, etc.
