Is it possible in hitfilm to extrude text or an image and have it be reflective in order to refect the environment it's in or must I create the extrusion as a 3d object in a 3d package first and import as a 3d object.

Thanks guys

    Reflecting the actual objects in the scene does not work, but that doesn't work with normal 3D models either. You can however set the extrusion to use an environment map, which will be reflected if you set it up in the material controls for the extrusion.

    Hi @Robin

    That was what I meant, reflect an environment map. OK sounds like it's possible then. Can't get to hitfilm right now but will try a test later today.

    Thanks for the help
