I have an object in front of a mirror that i only make visible later in an animation. Therefore, i made the object transparent, but the reflection of the object is still visible when i render it it. I use Blender Render. The object is transparent but the reflection is visible. How do I make the reflection transparent as well?


  • $\begingroup$ have you tried animating the object's visibility/render property? $\endgroup$ – Samir Rahamtalla Nov 3 '18 at 15:50

Visibility settings in the Outliner (the little 'eye' and 'camera' icons) can be keyframed by pressing 'I' on them, so you can make your object appear at a certain frame of the animation.

  • $\begingroup$ However i found a solution by setting the specular setting to 0 $\endgroup$ – user64228 Nov 3 '18 at 0:13
