does not look weird? looks like a reflection, unless you were expecting to see your personal camera drone or something!

Oh he's talking about the perspective being impossible.

Unless of course you're looking from a *camera drone* perspective.

Maybe?

from that point of view, i dont think a mirror would show the character fro where she is.

They are not standing in front of the mirror ... so how is there a reflection of them in the mirror? that's the point.

She is not in front of the mirror, yet it reflects her.

And? You do not have to be in front of the mirror to cast a reflection.... Your body reflect/radiate light, this light beam reflect on the mirror and and external observer sees it.

ya but mirrors can reflect anything in a 180 degree radius, mirror working as intended...

at least from the perspective of the camera drone

Well based on the POV on the camera it looks fine

No but positioned where they are they would be hidden in the mirror when viewed from that camera angle ... don't believe me, try it at home Smile

You actually end up with a blind spot where the avatar should be hidden in the mirror.

Why are people surprised mirrors don't work properly? In the game CQ was really adapted from the main characters don't show up in mirrors.

i used my annoyingly reflective laptop screen and found that i could still see my hand with it being 3 inches off to the right with my head look at its reflection from the top-left side of the screen

Vampires have no mirror image. So in WoD CCP will have one thing less to worry about.

I can only assume people in this thread have never used a real mirror based on this discussion.

The reflection is very realistic. The OP is not.

If the avatar stepped 3 feet to her left, and the camera did not move, she would then be hidden in the mirror. As is, it is perfect.

And btw, mirrors are extremely easy to code in a 3D ray trace environment - just up the reflectivity on a surface to 100%. Not too tricky.
