Default just few questions from a nOOb

Hy all!
I hope you don't mind if I ask you few questions here. If I will have any Q in future, I will write it in this thread. And sorry if it was answered many times before.

ok, first thing: How do you make reflections? For example, you have a sword, aand you want it's blade to reflect the area around it?

And tnx!

Well, in the docs, you could find out the typical workflow for adding an environment reflection map under: RENDERING.

Also, each shder type has different, if at all, types of reflection capabilities.

For a quick, accurate, and easy reflection, check out: for his AWSOME script called GIJoe.

You could also read the docs with mental Ray too

Sorry I couldn't give you a direct "how-to" type of answer, but refections are one of the many things that have HUNDREDS of ways to achive a good look
