Reflect only certain stuff

Is it possible to have certain materials only show other certain objects or refl maps in reflections using v-ray (preferably) or mental-ray, without having to rely on passes?

Re: Altering proportins after animation

I'm already relying on Action Clips and tweaking the joints (Ctrl+J) is trivial to work with. I can tweak the upperarm, but then have to reposition lowerarm/hand. when I do this, the entire arm rotates in an undesired angle.

The rig is Biped Rig and unfortunately, no nulls bewteen the bones.

Re: mirror animation

Thanks for clarifying. This particular animation is somewhat simple. Cloning and applying negative scale on the clone works, but small tweaks are for some reason needed. I think I'll take that route.

Altering proportins after animation

I've completed a bunch of character animations. I initially had the character (in different poses) approved prior to animating it, but now the client wants the upperarms to be longer. I've always had a weird time doing this even with no animation - what is the proper way to do it, without affecting ...

Re: mirror animation

Thanks a bunch - but I have no idea how to use this. I tried loading it up in script editor, selected everything I needed to mirror and then ran the script but got error on line 37. Line 37 says "import gear" - I then found and installed the Gear add-on but that didn't help either. The docs says aft...

mirror animation

I have a character set up using Biped Rig. I'd like the mesh and animation to mirror completely. Scaling on X messes it up and I've tried plotting the constraints and animation, but didn't have luck with that either.

Can it be done?

Re: Instance On Curve

Dayum - I stumbled upon the video on Vimeo. This is such nice work. A colleague at a clients place made a Unity script to do similar stuff a while back, and it made me wish I could have something similar in XSI. I've previously done a number of racetracks (in v7 days) and back then it was all manual...

Re: multiple object on path animation

Notice how the Age value dissapears after you spread out the threads. The moment you touch the slider you once again introduce a fixed value and therefor, all threads jump to same position.

Re: Elastic band rig

Yes, pretty much something like that (and using Syflex). Not something I'd be able to come up with within a reasonable amount of time.
