    Scene capture 2D problem

    Hi guys! Hope youre all ok,

    Just a quick one,
    Ive made a room, in which i would like a Mirror. So ive Added a "SceneCapture2D" actor. Ive created a Render target and Created a material in which ive assigned it to the "emmisive" node. I then use the Render target as the "texture target" for the SceneCapture2D actor.

    It is working, BUT im getting a Doubled capture. Heres a Screenshot.

    Ive adjusted the settings for the "address X and Y" with no joy. Im probably just being a Noob!

    Thanks

    That's not a tool for rendering a mirror like reflection, it's for doing things like having a screen showing a camera view for things like security cameras

      However, placing the "camera" where the mirror plane is, facing outwards, together with a flipped X axis, can give a fairly good approximation....

          My guess is that your texture mapping is off, as to why it's tiling. But in any case, there's no solution at the moment for doing a mirror type reflection, SSR can do that for things like floors, but only renders reflections of objects that are rendered so it doesn't work for mirrors.
