Hey, I was wondering if it is possible to lower the transparency of Lara in a mirrored room.
Eg in the mirrored room lara's reflection has the same transparency like when you press the look button.
If so, how ? :)

how do you mean, disable transaprency?
I'm trying to get it to work, so Lara is like 50% see-through in the mirrored room :)

The mirror Lara is very bright, right?
I had the same problem with the floor reflection in my gym.

Here's what I did:

I made a static floor object with opaque textures (so NOT transparent!)
I gave it OCB 16 to make it transparent ingame.
This sort of transparency does not whiten the textures like applying transparent textures does.
Then I gave the "reflection" room below very low ambient lighting and I made some extra textures with a transition from texture-to-black.
So the reflectionroom is very dark but is still reflected a bit. I did this because the floor of the gym is made of wood and not glass, which would give a stronger reflection.

The result is a light floor but Lara's reflection is not very bright. :D

I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but it might give you some ideas.
Because Lara's reflection can't be made transparent. That wouldn't make sense either since a reflection is always solid: you can't see though the person or object reflected.

Lara's reflected in the water, but she's too bright, this is the reason why I want to make it a bit more transparent ;)

Don't her legs poke out of the water before she dives in? :confused:
Adn doesn't her reflection poke out of the water when swimming on the surface?

Anyway, it is not possible to make her reflection transparent.
Too bad though, it would have been awesome to have a waterreflection like that.
