POV-Ray Metallic Spheres and Reflection

,

Shiny Balls

To make a object reflective, use keyword “roughness” and “reflection” inside “finish”. The value for reflection is from 0 to 1. Here's a example:

texture{pigment{color Gray} finish{ reflection 1 }}
mirror balls
3 mirror balls, colored blue, red, gray, and each has reflection value set to 1. 〔mirror_balls.pov

#include "colors.inc"

light_source { <50,50,-50> color White }
camera { location <3,-4,-3> look_at <0,0,0> sky <0,0,-1>}

sphere {<-2,0,-1>, 1 texture{pigment{color Blue}finish{ reflection 1 }} }
sphere {< 0,0,-1>, 1 texture{pigment{color Red }finish{ reflection 1 }} }
sphere {< 2,0,-1>, 1 texture{pigment{color Gray}finish{ reflection 1 }} }

plane { <0,0,-1>, 0
  pigment {
    checker color White, color Gray
  }
}
mirror balls2
5 mirror balls, with a mirror behind. The balls has progressive reflection values, from 0 to 1. 〔mirror_balls2.pov
