Need 3D text to shine - Macromedia Director 3D

I was wondering if there was a way to make a 3D text member really shiny, with automatic model rotation. Since I have a background with stagelights on it, and I wanted it to look sort of like the lights were reflecting off of the 3D text. I have already tried the settings in the 3D text extruder, but it's not enough. I don't know if there's a way, but just asking....

    have you tried the reflection map settings?
    can make things look really shiny.

    where scene is the W3D object....
    scene.shader[1].reflectionmap = scene.texture("texturename")

    or.... pasted from existing file....
    t = scene.newtexture("wert", #fromcastmember, member("water"))

    scene.model[1].shader.reflectionmap = t


    scene.shader[2].usediffusewithtexture = true

    give it a try! :)



    best

    How do you get it to work? Since I'm new to this kind of stuff.

    you could use a reflection map.
