Hello all,

I created a material that has high reflectance and when I check the material surface in the surface settings it seems like it reflects the environment. Now I have placed the mirror inside a hall and when I render with CineRender it reflects the sky and not the real surroundings which is an internal space. Any ideas why this is happening and how can I fix it?

Thank you :D
Looks like you may have a fake reflection setup in the environment channel of the surface settings (Carsten has a YouTube tutorial about these viewtopic.php?t=68823) or you may be using a HDRI lightsource which is creating the reflection
