hi

am learning actionscript and have got a bit carried away
this pic below will scroll and all the elements need to be
cut out with their shadows and reflections the wall and floor
will be a repeating _mc

http://stratacafe.com/image.asp?galcat=0&imageID=26738

i am guessing where i use the masks and layers in the render dialog
i am thinking i am going to have to render each object separately ?

but then they won't have the other objects to bounce reflections from
or the shadows etc

the other thing i thought was to render each object with glow white and make separate mattes and mix the shadow /reflections on

anyhow any ideas

also this is the first reasonably realistic thing i have tried any ideas or critique very welcome

hope the weather is good where you are
