SW 2011 SP1 + PV360
I can see the floor reflection on my final and preview render, now is there a way to output a file with the shadow AND reflection is there but the background tranparent?
When I select PNG - the floor reflection is gone - shadow stays. I've tried a couple other outputs. If i output BMP ofcourse I don't get the transparent background... which is what I'm looking for.
Is this possible to do ? I don't see why not - because png support multi level alpha (unlike gif) which supported only binary (transparent / non transparent states)
Couple things to note:
If I try to edit the scene - I am unable to click Floor reflection - even if shadow is turned on.
My floor is defined - i've changed this xy, yz etc. offset , no offset.
I am unable to check the (Floor Reflection) - it's aways greyed out
Also if I right-click on Scenes tree on Left and choose ADD Floor Apperance - this doesn't seem to do anything.
Changing properties of this added floor does not change the rendering at all ( Seems like this is only for SW viewing not appied to PV360)
Here is image of final render ( you can see the floor reflection )
Here is Aplha output of that same image:
