In Cycles, I would like to make a metal object have a shiny, glossy material. The only thing is, other object's colors reflect off of this metal object.

I would like to make it glossy, but not reflect any other colors.

How do I do this?

    $\begingroup$ Well.. nothing, just light, not colors. Like I want to make it have those highlights and reflect light so there is a bit of "white reflection" to this black-colored object, but not reflect colors like purple and red, etc. $\endgroup$ Commented May 25, 2015 at 19:52
  • $\begingroup$ you can disable other objects from appearing as reflection if they are not needed in other things $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ You can turn off glossy reflection for each of your other objects but that's not very good practise because you may want them to reflect on each other. In blender internal this can be done though. See this answer, it asks the same in a more general sense blender.stackexchange.com/questions/983/exclusive-lighting $\endgroup$

One way to do this is by preventing other objects from appearing as a reflection on any glossy material by disabling the Glossy option in : PropertiesObjectRay_Visibility
