Hello people,


I'm starting with pov, and I'd like to know if is there any way to use
reflection map in pov as texture?

I'm modeling a car, and I'd like to use a texture as reflection map to
render the image faster (than use reflection tag). It doesn't matter if the
reflection is realistic, how do I make it?


Thanks,
Marcelo Muniz

Reflection is a part of an object's finish.  Pigments and normals may be mapped 
by patterns, but not finishes.  To pull this off, the whole texture needs mapping:

#declare texShiny = texture {
   pigment { rgb <0.45,0.89,0.67> }
   finish {
     reflection { 0.23, 0.78 falloff 1 }
     brilliance 3
   }
}

#declare texMatte = texture {
   pigment { rgb <0.45,0.89,0.67> }
   finish {
     reflection { 0.00, 0.05 falloff 1 }
     brilliance 1.2
   }
}

#declare texCar = texture {
   gradient y
   texture_map {
     [0.0 texMatte]
     [1.0 texShiny]
   }
}

What I suspect you really want is to model only half the car and then create a 
mirror image.  The answer to that is even easier:

#declare CarLeft = union {
    ...
}

#declare CarRight = object { CarLeft scale <-1,1,1> }

This will simplify modeling, but it won't save trace time.
