Hi there,

New to the forums!

Been teaching myself corona for Cinema 4D and hit a little bit of a roadblock - I am rendering a glass candleholder in front of a mirror, but the reflected holder has no refraction, appearing as a thin glass.

I was wondering if I had missed a setting possibly that would enable this? I had a look on the forums and google, but couldn't find anything linked to this!

Please see attached screenshot!

Thanks!

Matt

Hi,
Does the mirror have reflection glossiness set to other than 1? If so, try to set it to 1 and see if that will solve the issue.
I'm not Corona Team member. Everything i say, is my personal opinion only.

Knew there had to be a reason!

@C4D team - this is a light transport bug, right? Should it be logged, or are the current reports enough?

The core team knows about this. No need to fill in a report. I am not even sure it's a bug...

The workaround is 100% glossiness or to enable caustics on the material (if you don't want 100% glossiness).
