Turn on Ground Plane



First. If you're doing the reflection on the ground plane, turn it on. If you're not doing the ground plane, you can skip this step.

Ok I run Poser 7 and was having no luck with this tutorial, making the ground reflective. But I found there is an Additional option in the Poser 7 controls that needs to be disabled. So for those who cannot get this to work right for them and are running P7. Here is what to do (this may work for poser 6 users too) in the PoserSurface controls under materials tab. under the Gradient_Bump option is the Surface_Catch_only option DISABLE IT after I disabled it everything worked fine. :) hope this helps

Straight forward, quick. I have both the Poser 5 Handbook (Mortier) and the guide that came with the software and neither put it in a manner that could be found or way that could be followed by the novice!

This is very helpfull. Now, I can do reflections with ease. I wouldn't know where I'd be, if this tutorial wasn't here. :-)

Great introduction to a fairly simple feature, but heck I went more than halfway through the manual, at that time I just wanted to start rendering, so I never got to this part.....don't know if it's even in there........Thanx :D

Thank you for this tutorial! I knew the basics of doing Poser reflections, but always got the settings a little off. Now I know the right settings to do some really good reflections.
