I have some images and a flying camera in front of them. I just want the pictures to be able to reflect something that is in front and behind the camera (or reflect anything, at this point I dont care lol). I mean, I want them to have a similar look that the one you see when you hold a real picture. It kind of reflects the background. I have tried to achieve this but with lame results.
do you guys know a way of doing so?
TUT or something?
If you are using After Effects CS6 or higher you could achieve this by using the ray-trace engine and then just adjust the reflection options on the pictures to suit. Hope that helps.
real reflections are only possible in the raytrace renderer in cs6 (but it’s sloooooow) or in Element 3D.
in general After Effects renderer, you will have to fake it, and depending on your scene this can be very tricky.This might be helpful: http://qubahq.com/2010/06/tutorial-100-accurate-reflections/
